Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho has produced nine assists in the Bundesliga this season

So many good individual displays spiced Spurs second half performance. It was an unbelievable result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.

"It was a massive victory for us and the players deserve all the credit".

"I don't have any words for the second half". Dortmund did the double over Spurs in the 2015/16 Europa League, while Pochettino's men got revenge last season in the Champions League which included a 3-1 win at Wembley.

This time, Maurico Pochettino's side managed to take the lead when on top, as Jan Vertonghen's pinpoint cross was confidently volleyed home by Son in the 47th minute for the opening goal of the tie.

It was an especially impressive success for Pochettino given he was without the injured Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Ben Davies. We need to feel proud about the performance, so happy but at the same time, calm, because there is still a lot of work to do.

Son has now scored in 13 matches for Spurs this season, and the north Londoners have won all of them. Our feeling was we never felt the confidence to play. That was a gift.

Ajax are seeking to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 16 years, while Real have not lost a tie at this stage in nearly a decade. However, a Christian Pulisic shot that forced Hugo Lloris into a save at the near post eight minutes later - after Juan Foyth was robbed of possession inside his area - showcased the threat BVB could pose.

Wenger revealed before the match that he tried to sign Sancho when he was at Manchester City.

"It's only the first leg, the first half of the tie".

Substitute Fernando Llorente headed Spurs into dreamland three minutes later, and they will take their three-goal lead back to Germany for the second leg on March 5, a result that already looks beyond doubt unless Spurs stage a dramatic collapse.

If Son was excellent, Vertonghen was even better.

Suddenly, Dortmund had no answers to Tottenham's high-tempo pressing and it was Vertonghen who was the hosts' unlikely hero in the 83rd minute as he volleyed home from Serge Aurier's cross.
