Extremely second half of Wembley is about to score Tottenham in the Champions League quarterfinals! In the first game of the spurs, the Spurs won 3: 0 with Borussia Dortmund and so after a huge step to the top 8 they can safely wait for a revenge in Germany to legalize the big success.
In view of the first half of the game, hardly anyone could have guessed the end of the game. In it Borussia was the more active team, which more often threatened the opponent's door. But Tottenham again showed that there was another team in the second half. Until this season, 8 of the 9 Champions League spurs fell after the break, and this trend continued in the eliminations. Hohn Min Son started the wonderful night for the hosts in a 47th minute. From then on, the English were definitely feeling more comfortable and slowly increasing their pressure to reach the 83rd minute and Jan Vertongen's goal for 2-0. Just 3 minutes later, Fernando Iorrete, who was just in the game, knocked a corner from the corner for the final 3: 0, making Tottenham ahead of the final very serious.
Mauriceio Pocetino, who could not rely on his big stars, Dele Ali and Harry Caine, made four shifts in his squad with Leicester on Sunday. Oriie replaced Tripir to the right of the defense, and Fowt stood at the center of the defense instead of Rose, whose condition only allowed him to stand on the bench, Alderweired was preferred to Skip, and Lucas came to replace Yorrete.
With Dortmund the questionnaires were pretty much in view of the problems with the injured. Christian Pulišic surprisingly came into the eleventh day with Siggudu, Toprak and Hakimi. Expectedly, Mario Goetz lead the attack on Borussia in the absence of Paco Alcasser. This seemed to be one of the main problems for the Germans, since Gotse 's role as a fake nigger often left the attack without a man on top to end qualitative attacks.
The first half was a slight surprise to the Dortmund guests, who were definitely the most active team on the pitch. The "yellow and black" won the middle of the field and looked more often at the opponent's door. The only problem remained the last pass and the isolation of the striker Gyötse. This led to more shots from a distance. Christian Pulišic missed the first good chance for the team in the 15th minute, and shortly before, Lucas with a great performance from the air was a matter of centimeters of success for the spurs.
The more interesting minutes were in the 30's when the attacks became more acute. The best opportunity came at the very end of the half-time when Dan Axel Sigadou knocked head to head and Loris made a solid effort in front of the goal.
At the break, the better things were said in Tottenham's dressing room, because in the 47th minute Spurs managed to find the result. The Borussia players lost their ball in their half, and they reached Yan Vertongen, who spoke magnificently to the penalty area. Hohn Min Son was left alone after a qualitative motionless ball and was well-trapped by air to shoot Buryk from a close distance. For him it was the 11th goal in the last 12 matches of the team.
The hosts continued to be more active than their opponents, and after 70 minutes their pressure began to increase. This was a good result in the 83th minute, with a magnificent goal in the middle of the penalty area. It was the work of Serge Orie, and this time Vertongen was at the end of the combination and from the air scored for 2: 0.
Just 3 minutes later, Tottenham's defeat was overwhelming. Eriksen centered on the nearby beam, 120 seconds earlier, Yorente jammed his head and sent the ball to the far corner, forming a classic success for the Spurs.

An interesting first half in which Borussia was the more active team. The Germans won the middle of the field and looked more often at the opponent's door as the only problem was the lack of the last pass. For Tottenham as a consolation it can be the fact that 8 of the 9 goals in the tournament this season have come after the break.

With Dortmund the questions were more in view of the problems with injuries. Kristian Pulišic surprisingly enters the eleven, Zagagdou, Toprad and Hakimi are the other more interesting names. Expected Mario Goetze leads the attack in the absence of Paco Alcasser.
