Borussia Dortmund 0-1 (0-4 agg.) Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham – Harry Kane 49’
Hugo Lloris goalkeeping heroics and Tottenham’s defense kept Borussia Dortmund from getting anything from their first-half dominance. Harry Kane scored the only goal of the match to see Tottenham eliminate Dortmund from the competition without conceding a goal.
The 3-0 victory at home in the first-leg had Tottenham coming into this fixture as clear favorites.
Real Madrid 1-4 (3-5 agg.)Ajax
Real Madrid – Marco Asensio 70’
Ajax – Hakim Ziyech 7’ David Neres 18’Dusan Tadic 62’ Lasse Schone 72’
After conceding two players (Vinicius Junor and Lucas Vazquez) to injuries, and conceding two goals in the first half of the match, it was getting clearer that a miracle would be needed for Real Madrid to keep their title defense season going.
A very impressive Ajax side tore apart Real Madrid at the Bernabeu by equalling Madrid’s biggest defeat in the Champions League.
With a goal and two assists, Dusan Tadic played a part in three of the four goals that Ajax scored

Manchester United becomes the first team to advance after losing 2+goals at home in the first-leg of a Champions League knock-out stage after a 3-1 win in Paris.
An alert Romelu Lukaku scored the opening two goals for Manchester United before Marcus Rashford converted a late penalty into the winning to goal.
With a long list of injuries that started in the first-leg match at Old Trafford, not many would have tipped Manchester United to score three goals at the Parc des Princes.
