You Need Absolute Dream Against Tottenham, Germany Legend Tells Dortmund

Charlie Nicholas is backing Tottenham Hotspur to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals by scoring a vital away goal at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

But Dortmund will have no hope against Tottenham if it doesn't stop red-hot forward Son Heung-min, who cemented himself as a Dortmund killer February 13 by scoring in his team's 3-0 first-leg win.

Kane now has the same number of goals in Europe as the Brazilian Ronaldo.

Spurs went into the match off the back of a hard run of form.

"The 3-0 at Wembley is not important".

Mauricio Pochettino would not have wanted his side to be besieged so quickly and, even when his team was camped outside its own box, Dortmund still created big chances. "We played Saturday and the only way we can prepare is talking - and not talking too much because the players need to rest, need to recover after a very tough game".

Dele Alli will also continue on the sidelines but the team news report on TottenhamHotspur.com suggests that the attacking midfielder could make his long-awaited return from a hamstring injury against Southampton this coming weekend. He would be missed if he is now sidelined again. Nonetheless, Pochettino is urging his players not to be complacent. Pochettino then moved Son Heung-Min from the front line to the left wing, beefing up his midfield further.

Aurier posed with midfielder Moussa Sissoko and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as Spurs reached the last eight of the competition for the first time since 2011. A close-range stop at the end secured his clean sheet.

While Dortmund couldn't produce the result they required, Reus showed glimpses of the talent we all know is there, with the attacker likely to be a key player if Dortmund are to finish the season as Bundesliga champions.

However, Spurs came out all guns blazing in the second half and managed to equalise from the spot as Harry Kane calmly converted the penalty they were awarded.

However, Pochettino's side did not look particularly impressive and could have conceded a few goals in the first half itself. Of course the first goal killed the game really.

"Dier has been a long time out, maybe he can be on the bench, I don't believe he can start, Harry Winks the same".
