Jan Vertonghen has produced an absolutely stunning goal saving tackle to deny Borussia Dortmund going ahead after ten minutes.

The tackle could have huge significance in the tie when it seemed certain that Marco Reus would score an opening goal.

It was a mistake from Davinson Sanchez that gifted Reus the opportunity, only for Vertonghen’s sliding challenge to take the ball away from the foot of the German international when he was ready to pull the trigger.

Dortmund will be sick of the sight of Vertonghen, following his man of the match display in the first leg.
