  • Tottenham's Erik Lamela in action against Dortmund's Abdou Diallo during the Uefa Champions League round of 16 second leg soccer match between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur in Dortmund

"We were listening to the Champions League song". Tottenham leads 3-0 halfway through the matchup and is the odds-on favorite to advance to the quarterfinals for just the second time in its 137-year history.

They won 1-0 at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday and eased into the last eight with a 4-0 aggregate win over the Bundesliga leaders. Here's how to watch the game online.

Spurs will discover who their quarter-final opponents are when the draw is made on March 15, with the two-legged tie to be held in the second and third weeks of April.

In August I think plenty of supporters, whatever the colours they wear, were looking forward to experiencing Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.

Needing to score at least three goals, Dortmund packed their line-up with forwards as Mario Goetze, Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer - who have scored 30 goals between them - all started together for the first time this season. 'Maybe the team of a couple of years ago would concede and then it's much more hard so we are making steps forward.

Spurs sat just six points behind their big spending title rivals but last week's slip-ups have left them in a battle for a top four spot, leaving some fans frustrated that they have yet again hit their ceiling, falling short of a serious title challenge and are stuck in a repetitive cycle.

Sweat had 53 total tackles, 11.5 sacks and one forced fumble last season with the Bulldogs. The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Any hope built up by Dortmund's first-half performance swiftly vanished after half-time, however, as Moussa Sissoko fed Kane with a first-time pass and the England striker confidently fired past Burki.

"If we are not going to receive help from our football people in our country, only I can laugh".

"But now they're in the quarter finals, if they could get through to the next round of the competition at the new White Hart Lane, it would be unbelievable for the club". It was the same in Dortmund, on the big European nights it's important to take the next steps because this is a very hard ground to come to.

'Of course you need some luck and a good 'keeper but we dug in and we knew if we did that we wouldn't concede which was so important'.

However, Kane's class can not be questioned and his third goal in four games since returning made him the club's top all-time scorer in European competitions with 14 of his 24 European goals coming in just 17 Champions League games.

"We don't know yet", the midfielder responded after being asked about the severity of the injury.
