Tottenham Hotspur will find out their Champions League quarter final and semi final draw this morning, after besting Borussia Dortmund over two legs in the round of sixteen.

This is the furthest Tottenham have ever been in the competition, with their last quarter final appearance coming back in 2011.

Spurs have never qualified for the semi finals, but will be looking to make history this season under Mauricio Pochettino.

It may be a long shot, but Spurs’ last hope of a trophy this season is the top European competition, and fans may already be dreaming of such an occasion.

Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at home, before travelling to Germany and winning 1-0 there too last round.

Despite defending expertly in these games, Spurs have come unstuck in the Premier League of late and will need to improve that side of their game, especially if they come up against a Man City or Barcelona.

Dimitar Berbatov claims this is what Spurs need to do for Champions League success (Mirror): “This time last season, Spurs were knocked out by a more streetwise Juventus outfit but you always learn from your mistakes and they showed their extra experience in Germany.

“They will, however, need to cut down on the defensive mistakes in the next round – they will be facing a top team regardless of the draw, and you can’t always rely on the goalkeeper or last ditch tackles to get you out of trouble.

“A bit of luck in the draw and you never know.”
