Dortmund dominate Donetsk to book last eight berth
DORTMUND, Germany (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund booked their place in the Champions League's quarter-finals for the first time in 15 years with a 3-0 win at home to Shakhtar Donetsk in Tuesday's last 16, second leg tie.
Having drawn 2-2 in Ukraine three weeks ago in the first leg, Borussia go through 5-2 on aggregate as goals by Felipe Santana, Mario Goetze and Jakub 'Kuba' Blaszczykowski capped the German champions' dominant display.
Dortmund are in the last eight for the first time since 1998, when as defending champions they lost in the semi-finals.
On the eve of the match, Shakhtar coach Mircea Lucescu boldly predicted the winner of this tie would reach the final at London's Wembley on May 25 and Dortmund gave his statement some credibility with an impressive performance.
