Lloris – 9
What a great night of European football, an exemplary away performance, above all a team effort and a passage into the quarter finals. What an achievement. Congratulations to the players, the manager, the club and those magnificent supporters who were out there.
In the first half hour, we weathered a storm of Dortmund pressure. Did we manage to play too high and defend too deep at the same time? We certainly brought some of that pressure onto ourselves by not retaining possession. Pochettino then moved Son into midfield, and Spurs to banks of five and four, more successfully suffocating Dortmund possession and out of that Spurs themselves began to retain the ball.
Second half, Eriksen gave away possession, Sissoko played a stunning through ball (more about those two in the ratings) and Harry Kane produced a very, very high quality finish. From that moment, the spirit had gone from Dortmund and the tie was over.
