Tottenham overcame Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate to book a place in the last 8 of the Champions League, for the first time since 2011.

In the process, Tottenham became the first team to beat Dortmund at the Wesfalenstadion this season, and continued their winning streak against the German side which now stretches to four games.

Pochettino opted to start with a back 5 once again as Ben Davies and Serge Aurier came into the side. Tottenham’s central defenders produced a stunning display to ensure that the home side didn’t open the scoring after they threw caution to the wind right from the start of the game.
