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.

Match in 5

  • Dortmund make last eight with 5-4 aggregate victory
  • Goals from Hulk and Rondón give Zenit 2-1 win on night
  • Kehl equalises with first-ever goal in competition
  • Klopp's side are quarter-finalists for second year in row
  • Quarter-final draw on 21 March

Reaction

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.

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.
