Tottenham hit three past Borussia Dortmund to take control of Champions League tie


Tottenham Hotspur will take a commanding lead to the Westfalenstadion next month after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 clash at Wembley.


Christian Pulisic was allowed too much space inside the area but he could only shoot at the feet of Hugo Lloris with Jadon Sancho waiting for a square pass.


It was a game devoid of many early goal-scoring opportunities, but Spurs found their flair shortly after the half-hour when Serge Aurier 's neat flick set Juan Foyth clear down the right flank.


Little more than a minute after the restart, Vertonghen produced an excellent, curling cross from the left wing and it fell perfectly for Son to sidefoot into the top corner -- the home side's first shot on target.


Dortmund were struggling to get a sight of the Spurs goal in the second half, but Mahmoud Dahoud did scuff an effort into the arms of Lloris with 20 minutes remaining.


And Spurs made it 3-0 moments later as substitute Llorente glanced home Eriksen's corner, leaving them clear favourites to make the quarterfinals.
