Spurs claimed a stunning 3-0 win over Dortmund in their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg

Tottenham produced a memorable second-half display to claim a 3-0 win in their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg tie against Borussia Dortmund.

The German giants were dangerous throughout the first half, especially with England winger Jadon Sancho.

But they failed to take their chances and Spurs made them pay.

Son Heung-Min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente scored after the break to give the north Londoners a huge advantage in the European clash.

Tottenham

Hugo Lloris: Stopped everything Dortmund could muster in first half. 6

Juan Foyth: Looked nervy early on but found his confidence as the game progressed and produced two timely clearances. 6

Davison Sanchez: Sancho ran him ragged early on but he grew into the test. 6

Toby Alderweireld: Like his partner, was solid throughout and added vital experience at the back when Dortmund pressed. 7

Serge Aurier: Found it tough in first half but delivered a wonderful cross for Vertonghen’s goal. 6

Moussa Sissoko: Some wayward passes but another good showing. 6

Harry Winks: Another fine all round performance from the midfielder on the big stage. 7

Jan Vertonghen: Superb performance from left-back. Set up Son’s opener with a wicked cross before volleying home Spurs’ second with aplomb. 9

Christian Eriksen: Struggled to find his range at times but his perfect corner saw Llorente head home the third. 7

Son Heung-Min: Another tireless display and was fantastic in the second half. Fired home the opener just after the break. 8

Lucas Moura: Failed to find his team-mates at times but was dangerous and worked hard. 6

Substitutes

Fernando Llorente: Came on with five minutes remaining and took seconds to score what could be a vital header. 7

Victor Wanyama: Last-minute substitute. N/A

Unused subs: Trippier, Rose, Lamela, Gazzaniga, Skipp

Borussia Dortmund

Roman Burki: Strange decision making in first half went unpunished. Had no chance with either goal and did little else wrong. 5

Achraf Hakimi: Attacked with menace in first half but Spurs pushed him back after the break and Vertonghen caught him sleeping to set up opener. 5

Omer Toprak: Will be disappointed with all three goals. 4

Dan-Axel Zagadou: Was good in the first half but caught out for Son’s opener before being taken off. 5

Abdou Diallo: Couldn’t get into the game in second half. 4

Mahmoud Dahoud: Produced some terrific passes but faded. 6

Axel Witsel: A solid presence in front of the defence and the goals were not his fault. 5

Thomas Delaney: Put his body on the line several times and his night deserved a better outcome. 6

Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho: The England winger showed his incredible talent in the first 45 and he could have had at least one goal and one assist. Went missing after half-time. 6

Christian Pulisic: Like Sancho, was very dangerous to start off but couldn’t keep it going. Lost possession too often. 5

Mario Gotze: Some lovely touches but not the best game for the World Cup winner after being deployed in a tricky role as the solo striker. 5

Substitutes

Raphael Guerreiro: On late but had a fierce shot that flew just wide. 6

Marcel Schmelzer: Did little of note and was on the pitch for Tottenham’s second and third. 4

Bruun Larsen: Last-minute substitute. N/A

Unused subs: Philipp, Wolf, Hitz, Balerdi.
