Just as they did a week ago, Borussia Dortmund breezed past Spurs with clinical finishing, booking a place in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scored twice before Heung-Min Son netted a consolation goal for the hosts. In the end, though, Dortmund were just too good for Tottenham. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if the Germans go on to win the competition.
Spurs can now fully turn their attentions to the Premier League title race.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
Something to aspire to then. #coys

We just have to hold our hands up and say Dortmund are a top level team with a top level coach. Hopefully we can grow up to be that too.

Dortmund have been building a great club for a good few years & we're at the start of ours after yrs of chopping and changing. It will come

Master class from Dortmund over two legs, but nice to see @SpursOfficial fans showing great support all night, the team deserve that.??

We've received a footballing lesson over this tie. Dortmund are everything we aspire to be. We have the potential to reach their level.#thfc

A learning curve for a young Spurs team that have been ahead of it for virtually the whole season. No shame to lose to Dortmund, top side.

2 – Spurs suffered only their second defeat in their last 20 home European games (excluding qualifiers). Out.

They're just really, really good. That's it. Only team to really boss Spurs this season, and I reckon they'd do the same to anyone in the PL

Poch showed his priority with his team selection over the two games. Time to give 110% to win the League now. Credit to @BVB, superb team.

Tonight was always going to be beyond us. Poch chose to prioritise the league over Europa last Thursday. Onwards and upwards. #COYS

Anyway. Another schooling from a brilliant Dortmund team. Didn't really help ourselves because a fair few individuals were under par.

This tie was always going to be tough, and it's a great measuring stick for where we want to be as a club. Now to focus on the league! #COYS
