Tottenham put one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals after a thrilling second-half performance saw them beat Borussia Dortmund comfortably in the last-16 first leg at Wembley.

Son continued his leading role in the influential duo's absence as he scored his 11th goal in his last 12 games early in the second half and his love affair with playing Dortmund continued as that was the ninth time he has scored against them in 11 games.

Spurs were second best in the first half, but put that right after the break as goals from Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente swung the tie firmly in their favour.

It did not start off so well for Spurs as after Lucas Moura came within inches of putting them ahead with an instinctive volley which whistled past the far post, Dortmund began to take control.

Spurs closed out the game, knowing they can travel to Dortmund in three weeks with the job virtually done.

It will take some capitulation in Dortmund on 5 March for them not to make it through to the last eight, on a night where Harry Kane and Dele Alli should be back in the fold.

Wembley was still rocking three minutes later when Llorente made it 3-0 as he nodded home a corner with his first touch of the game.
