Tottenham booked their place in the last eight of the Champions League last night, with a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund.
It proved to be plain sailing for Mauricio Pochettino’s men who were in control for the vast majority.
The hosts had lots of pressure in the first half but Spurs stood firm and ensured it was a routine win.
Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris did make a couple of good saves in the first period, which had he not been on hand could have made life more difficult.
It wasn’t to be though for Dortmund and Spurs go marching on in Europe.
The Champions League is Spurs’ last hope of silverware this season and they will need to muster up similar courage in their future ties.
Lloris held firm last night and his big saves proved vital to the Spurs cause.
Following the contest Spurs were quick to praise their fantastic custodian on Twitter, saying:

Spurs’ supporters were delighted with his performance.
It capped a fine week for the 32-year-old who saved a late penalty in the North London derby to maintain a point for his side.
Following the contest in Germany, Spurs fans were quick to laud their impressive stopper, taking to Twitter.
Here’s how many of the Spurs supporters reacted…
That save against Arsenal could truly prove to the massive turning point in his season from a personal perspective.
Hugo’s a winner and will know his judgement and decision-making hasn’t been good enough this season but that was a wonderful performance tonight definitely ‘MOTM’.

I’ll be honest and say I’m the first to criticize the man, but he was an absolute mountain tonight especially in the first half when one goal would have given Dortmund hope. Fair play ?
