Champions League: Tottenham stadium could stage quarter-final, says Mauricio Pochettino

"I expect to play in the new stadium", said the Tottenham boss.

"We need to play like always we play, trying to win, that is important", he said.

'At Wembley, it's hard for the fans to come there and make it your home. It's very hard. Sometimes the stadium wasn't full because the maximum on the capacity.

"We know Borussia Dortmund is a great team, top of the Bundesliga because they deserve to be there".

'Imagine that at the new stadium.

But Spurs are exploring about the possibility of playing the home leg of their last eight game at the new ground, subject to safety and security clearance.

Pochettino was delighted with last night's performance: "It was fantastic, job done". In 2016/17 they crashed out at the group stage and were beaten by Juventus in the last-16, last year.

For Spurs to be on the cusp of a Champions League quarter-final and, until recently, in the Premier League title race, means their players are heroes, according to Pochettino.

"This is a huge step, but we have to keep growing and we need more nights like this", Kane said. It was the same in Dortmund, on the big European nights it's important to take the next steps because this is a very hard ground to come to.

Tottenham goalkeeper Lloris added: "As expected they pushed in the first 20 mins and we stayed strong together and that's why we got through".

Speaking after the game, Burki said: "We knew it will be really hard because of the loss in the first leg. Tottenham waited for their chance and with Harry Kane up front you can do that".

However, Kane's class can not be questioned and his third goal in four games since returning made him the club's top all-time scorer in European competitions with 14 of his 24 European goals coming in just 17 Champions League games.
