Borussia Dortmund will be favourites to advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League following their 4-2 win at Zenit St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
Dortmund took control of the match from the start, scoring twice in the first five minutes.
Zenit pulled back two goals in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to beat last season’s Champions League runners-up.
Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp spoke to reporters after the game.
“St Petersburg are a very talented team and follow their own plan too”, he said. “They stuck solidly to this plan and this was the key to the game. I haven’t really thought about the pros and cons.”
Lewandowski scored twice in the second half to send the German side sailing through to the second leg, which will be played in Dortmund on March 19th.
