Tottenham have taken a massive step towards reaching the Champions League quarter-finals following their 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 first leg on Wednesday.

Dortmund dominated the first half at Wembley, but Hugo Lloris kept Spurs in the game with a series of fine saves.

In the first 45 minutes, Spurs and Dortmund were on the same pedestal with no goals for either side .

Spurs however took the lead two minutes after the restart through the in-form Son Heung-min and further goals from man-of-the-match Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente

Son's fourth goal in his last four appearances took him to 16 for the season, but none have been as priceless as this one.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen capped his own powerful performance when he swept in their second goal in the closing stages and substitute Fernando Llorente's late third put the seal on a remarkable result.

Although Tottenham still have to survive the second leg at Signal Iduna Park on March 5, they have a golden opportunity to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2011.
