Lucien Favre was left to rue Borussia Dortmund’s missed chances during their Champions League defeat to Tottenham.
Spurs finished the job against Dortmund as Harry Kane’s second-half goal, sealed a 4-0 aggregate win in the last-16 tie.
The hard yards of their progression were done with their 3-0 first leg at Wembley three weeks ago, but they also came through a testing opening 45 minutes at Signal Iduna Park where Dortmund laid siege to their goal.

Hugo Lloris pulled off several saves on his way to a 100th clean sheet for the club, allowing Kane’s clinical finish early in the second half to kill the tie off.
Favre knew the damage was done at Wembley but also rued his side’s failure to break the deadlock in a dominant first half, when a goal could have changed the course of the tie.
“I think we played a very good first half, with nearly six chances on goal, but we did not score,” he said. “We lost 1-0 in the end but we didn’t lose the tie at home today.
We could have been ahead at half-time but it didn’t happen, it was just impossible to achieve.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
