The team was kicked out of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 by English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

A 4-0 aggregate score kicked out German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund from the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur defeated the Germans 3-0 in England two weeks ago, and yesterday they added one more goal to their tally in Signal Iduna Park.

Now, out of every competition but the Bundesliga, the team is aiming to battle against Bayern Munich in the national competition.

“We needed at least one goal before half-time, which we didn’t manage although we had an unbelievable amount of chances,” said Dortmund captain Marco Reus according to the Asian Age.

“We have shown we have the quality and our first-half performance (against Spurs) is something we can build on after Augsburg, that was a game to forget.”

“We have to deliver in the coming weeks and that starts on Saturday,” he commented.

Dortmund is currently in the first position of the Bundesliga table with 54 points, they are followed one point by Bayern Munich.

The Black and Yellow have not won a single game in their last eight matches.

Venkatesham makes sure Arsenal’s voice is heard

The Gunners' managing director says his team is concerned about anything that could damage the English Premier League.

“If you look at both games (against Spurs), we lost a bit of it in London,” said team manager Sebastian Kehl.

“But we’ve seen a lot of positives – that should give us momentum and strength.”

“High intensity, enthusiasm, passion, great opportunities.”

“We can build on that, that’s the benchmark now,” the coach concluded.

Borussia Dortmund’s league chances will be put to the test on April 6th, as they visit the Allianz Arena to take on Bayern Munich.
