Tottenham vs Dortmund: Son issues Champions League warning as Sancho explains disaster

Tottenham vs Dortmund: Son issues Champions League warning as Sancho explains disaster

Billed as one of the more exciting last-16 ties, the first leg started off a restrained affair as Spurs resolutely held back the Bundesliga leaders in the first half.

There is a misleading perception of Son as a dutiful but low-key character content to play in the shadows of his more famous Tottenham teammates.

Tottenham went agonisingly close to opening the scoring in the seventh minute when Lucas Moura's volley fizzed wide of goal, the Brazilian having controlled Davinson Sanchez's header on his thigh. A similar formation has worked once before in a big match where Spurs nullified Liverpool at Wembley back in 2017, as they did Klopp's old team BVB on the night.

Second-half goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente have given Spurs a superb chance to make the quarter-final for just the second time. The Belgian went from provider to goalscorer in the 83rd minute when he latched on to Serge Aurier's cross.

"The manager told us at half-time what we needed to do tactically to get on top and it worked", Winks said. He wanted us - from the defenders to the attackers - to be as compact as possible and to press as a unit. That was the most important message he gave to us, and it worked.

One of the things that stood out was Spurs's patience and maturity.

Dortmund, who had conceded just two goals in the group stage, tried to recover but found no way past the disciplined Tottenham backline.

Sancho's awareness There's a saying about "headless-chicken" wingers: if you opened the gates they would carry on running out of the stadium.

"We have a lot of talented players".

"Dortmund's stadium is one of the most hard places to go", Vertonghen told Sky Sports News. They've won the possibility to have a few days off.

"We hope it's a statement to show that we are up there and we mean business and that we want to do well and go as far as we can in the Champions League", he said.

"We're going home now, there's no reason why we can't score three goals at home".

"Results like this does not help us to be the underdog". A point in Frankfurt is okay and drawing 3-3 after leading 3-0 is also part of the game.
