Spurs became the first English team to qualify for the nest round of the UEFA Champions League after they produced another consummate European performance last night eliminating current Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in their own back yard the Signal Iduna Park. The final result sent the North Londoners through 4-0 on aggregate and not conceding a single goal over the two legs against one of the most prolific attacking teams in Europe was arguably the most impressive achievements and it should stand them in good stead for the next stage.
One of the biggest shocks in Champions League history took place last night at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid as the reigning champions Real who lead Ajax 2-1 after the first leg were well and truly destroyed and outplayed by underdogs Ajax who thrashed their superior opponents 4-1 on the night and 5-3 on aggregate. Former Southampton star Tadic who was fighting relegation with the Saint’s not long ago was the man of the match assisting the firts two goals within the first fifteen minutes and a well-deserved goal for his efforts midway through the second half.
The Champions League actions continues tonight with the second legs of last Wednesday's games and its advantage PSG who were too good for Manchester United beating them relatively comfortably in their back yard 2-0 and it will take a United minor miracle for the Red Devils to progress to the next stage especially with their increasing injury list.
