Borussia Dortmund had a lot of ground to cover in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 draw Tuesday against Tottenham Hotspur. They needed at least three goals and couldn’t concede one in order to stay in the competition. Despite their efforts, Spurs brushed Dortmund aside, 1-0, advancing to the quarterfinals on 4-0 aggregate.
Dortmund came out firing, along with a very high gegenpressing to keep Spurs keeper Lloris busy. But Harry Kane got loose and buried his chance early in the second half, meaning Dortmund needed five goals in just over 40 minutes. Though the Yellow Wall tried to keep their spirits up, singing throughout the match, Kane’s strike ended the affair early.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Son (Lamela, 71′), Winks (Dier, 55′), Kane, Sissoko, Eriksen (Rose, 83′), Aurier, Davies
