“Yes, it means a lot and it is a great achievement (to be first German side to win at Tottenham) and I am convinced we have shown a special approach and produced a special performance. Tottenham Hotspur are a strong team but we showed an organization and a performance and a hunger tonight and we deserved to win. It means a lot to be the first German team to win here.”

STORY: Borussia Dortmund brushed aside Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 over two legs, after a 2-1 win in London on Thursday (March 17) secured their passage to the quarter-finals.

Led by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored twice on Thursday to add to the goal he scored in the first leg, Dortmund proved too strong for the Premier League outfit, who left top scorer Harry Kane on the bench with an eye on their domestic title challenge.

Aubameyang opened the scoring with a superb dipping effort after 24 minutes and doubled the advantage with a venomous effort 19 minutes time.

Son Heung-Min’s consolation for Spurs could not stop them falling to their first defeat in 10 European home games.

Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel said there was no doubt his side deserved to progress, such was their dominance over the two legs.

“It means a lot and it is a great achievement (to be first German side to win at Tottenham) and I am convinced we have shown a special approach and produced a special performance,” said Tuchel to reporters after the match.

“Tottenham Hotspur are a strong team but we showed an organization and a performance and a hunger tonight and we deserved to win. It means a lot to be the first German team to win here.”

Dortmund could face their former manager Juergen Klopp in the next round, as his Liverpool side saw off Manchester United to progress.

The quarter-final lineup was completed by holders Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, Shakhtar Donetsk, Braga, Sparta Prague and Villarreal with the draw taking place on Friday.
