Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side has advanced to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2011 after a solid performance against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening.

Tottenham, which held a 3-0 lead in the draw going into Tuesday’s match, won again against the German giants by a 0-1 final at Signal Iduna Park.

Despite facing a Dortmund side that was desperate for goals, Spurs’ defense and keeper Hugo Lloris held solid and kept the Bundesliga outfit from scoring.

Lloris was Tottenham’s man of the match, making 7 saves and keeping a fearsome Borussia attack from out of the goal.

The only goal of the night, paradoxically, was scored by Tottenham striker Harry Kane. He buried a shot assisted by Mousa Sissoko past Roman Bürki just after the whistle blew to begin the second half

This means that Spurs advanced by a dominating margin, scoring 4 goals as opposed to Borussia Dortmund’s zero in the two matches.

Now, Tottenham will wait for next week’s draw to see which opponent awaits them in the competition’s quarter-finals.
