Tottenham Hotspur progressed in the Champions League last night, seeing off Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate to make the quarter finals.

This is the first time Spurs have made it this far since 2011 under Harry Redknapp, and the club have never made the semi finals in their history.

However, the result that left eyebrows raised was the game in Madrid, as Ajax looked to overturn a deficit against holders Real.

Ajax lost 2-1 at home, giving away two away goals in the process, and needed a miracle to find a route into the quarters.

And a miracle arrived as the Dutch giants embarrassed last year’s Champions League winners by smashing them 4-1 away from home.

While this could be good news for the remaining quarter finalists with Real Madrid out of the way, it could be seen as bad news for Spurs.

Many believe Pochettino could be a top target for the Spanish giants if Santiago Solari is sacked.

However, the Independent claim that Madrid’s number one target is in fact Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Spurs made the semi-final of the then Champions League at their first attempt in 1962 losing very unluckily to the eventual winners Benfica.
    To say they have never made the semi previously is wrong the name may have changed but not the principle
