Tottenham blow Borussia Dortmund away in second-half goal blitz

Favre considers Sancho sanction after passport mishap

With Dele Alli and Harry Kane in contention to return for second leg, there must be serious optimism about their prospects in this tournament.

Spurs have been in excellent form of late and their win over Dortmund was made more impressive by the fact that they did so without key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli who are both now out injured.

Tottenham was bounced from both the FA Cup and League Cup in late January but have won three straight matches in the Premier League. "Tottenham were the better team", said Sancho.

We didn't feel the confidence to play.

"But he was impressive in the first half".

The Bundesliga outfit were in a relatively comfortable position with 10 minutes remaining, trailing by just one goal.

"They dropped off a bit then that early goal in the second half helped". The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal.

Vertonghen timed his run to perfection in the 83rd to kill off the game and Llorente gave them a big advantage for the second leg. "The pressing was intensive from Tottenham".

Dortmund were without the services of talisman Marco Reus as Chelsea-bound Christian Pulisic was drafted into the attack. But speaking to BeIn Sport, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed he had looked at signing the player when he was struggling to get first-team opportunities at the Etihad believing the pull of moving back to his hometown of London would prove hard to resist.

Lloris made a superb save to deny Dortmund on the stroke of half-time as Dan-Axel Zagadou met Sancho's cross with a header that the Tottenham captain clawed out at full stretch.

Son started a brilliant second-half display in the last-16 first leg at Wembley by opening the scoring from Jan Vertonghen's excellent cross, before Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente put Mauricio Pochettino's men on course for the last eight in the final seven minutes.

Suddenly, Dortmund had no answers to Tottenham's high-tempo pressing and it was Vertonghen who was the hosts' unlikely hero in the 83rd minute as he volleyed home from Serge Aurier's cross.
