Tottenham Hotspur made a statement in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund, comfortably beating the Bundesliga leaders 4-0 on aggregate over two legs.
When the draw for the Round of 16 was initially made it looked a difficult tie for Mauricio Pochettino’s side but, as the scoreline suggests, it turned out to be a pretty comfortable route through to the quarter-finals.
Winning 3-0 in the first leg thanks to an excellent Jan Vertonghen display and without Harry Kane and Dele Alli in the starting XI, it was Kane who put any doubts to bed at Signal Iduna Park with a clinical finish to secure a 1-0 win in Germany.
Now Kane and co. will head into the next round of the competition full of confidence, with it also being the first time they have made the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2011. Harry Redknapp was then at the helm as the team were knocked out by Real Madrid, with the team of Luka Modric, Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale unable to get past the last eight.
Mauricio Pochettino was delighted after the result in Dortmund, with the Champions League being the only trophy that Spurs realistically still have a chance of winning after falling out of the Premier League title race.
The Spurs manager also revealed that the club expect to be in their new stadium by the time the quarter-finals come around.
"I expect to play in the new stadium," said the Tottenham boss.
"We were talking with (chairman) Daniel Levy on Monday and yes, my wish is to play in the new stadium.
"Before the game, we were sitting listening to the song of the Champions League and we were thinking it would be amazing to be standing in the new stadium, listening to the song.
"Now we are in the quarter-finals, we hope we can finish and we can listen to the song."
