- Spurs advance to first UCL quarterfinal since 2011

Harry Kane‘s early second half goal joined a strong defensive effort as Tottenham Hotspur withstood the challenge of the Westfalenstadion to beat Borussia Dortmund and advance to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.
Spurs were out-attempted 19-5, but scored the lone goal of a 1-0 win that sent them through 4-0 on aggregate.

Spurs got the start they were expecting from the hosts, a desperate and energetic Dortmund attacking with vigor.
Hugo Lloris made a nice save to deny BVB an early salvo off the boot of Marco Reus and deflected toward goal.
Lloris was the man of the half for Spurs, and the visitors tight defense got the match to the break at nil-nil.
