2019/02/14 | 11:48

(Iraq Now News)- Tottenham Hotspurs and Real Madrid got the upper hand in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first-leg matches on Wednesday evening.

In London’s Wembley Stadium, Tottenham secured a confidence-boosting 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund, thanks to late goals scored by Jan Verthongen and Fernando Llorente.

The English club managed to break the deadlock with South Korean sensation Heung-Min Son in the 47th minute.

Jan Verthongen, who assisted Son in the first goal, scored one of his own in the 83rd minute to give the Spurs a 2-0 lead.

Fernando Llorente scored the curtain-closer in the 86th minute, giving Tottenham fans hope of reaching the quarterfinals, which if it happens, will be the first time since the 2010-11 season.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was also instrumental in the first-leg victory, as he stymied Christian Pulisic and Dan-Axel Zagadou in the first half of the match to keep his team level.

The second-leg match will be played on Tuesday, March 5 at Dortmund’s home.
