Borussia Dortmund reached the last eight of the UEFA Champions League for the second season running in spite of a 2-1 round of 16 second-leg defeat by FC Zenit.
Hulk's powerful opener raised hopes that the Russian side could recover their 4-2 first-leg deficit, but Sebastian Kehl's first strike in 30 UEFA Champions League appearances left them once again requiring three goals. They managed one in the form of José Rondón's diving header, but it proved too little, too late as Dortmund progressed 5-4 on aggregate.
Zenit have a great team. They play some quality football and on a good day they will cause problems for anyone. You can never rule out a goal by a great player like Hulk. He's difficult to defend against.
Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund coach
If we could have played a bit better at home and achieved a better result, we would have had a chance to qualify. They were better than us over the two legs and deserved to go through.
Sergei Semak, Zenit interim coach
