Tottenham Hotspur wrapped up a completely professional performance here at the Signal Iduna Park as they beat Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 1-0.
A solitary goal from Harry Kane was good enough to see Spurs march through to the quarterfinals of Europe’s biggest club competition.
The North London side came into the game with a 3-0 lead from the first leg after a stunning display back at Wembley but still needed to be professional to avoid any slip-ups against the youthful Dortmund side.
It was the German side who started the game in front foot and launched a series of attacks at Hugo Lloris’ goal.
Dortmund Skipper Marco Reus could be the one to break the deadlock with as little as ten minutes on the clock but a stunning challenge from Jan Vertonghen kept the German at bay.
Tottenham hardly had any sniff at the Dortmund goal as the Germans continued to apply rampant pressure and kept creating dangerous chances.
A fiery volley from Reus took a wicked deflection and missed the target much to the relief of a Hugo Lloris before the Frenchman made some stunning saves to deny Die Borussen.
The second half started in the same manner with the German side on the thick of the action but once again they failed to be decisive in front of the goal.
And on the 48th minute, against the run of play, Sissoko found Kane in acres of space and threaded a ball through the Dortmund defence which apparently looked switched off for a moment.
The Spurs skipper once again proved how lethal he can be in front of the goal as he slotted the ball past Roman Burki with ease.
Kane’s goal virtually killed the contest and the North London side held on to the lead to earn back to back clean sheets against the German side.
Towards the end of the match some of the Dortmund fans decided to leave the stadium early and the travelling Spurs fans didn’t hesitate to pick on them.
In a clip that is doing rounds online, the Spurs fan can be heard to chant ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ ( roughly translates to goodbye in English ) while waving the Germans farewell.
