Dortmund goes one more step closer to Wembley

06 March 2013 [13:25] - TODAY.AZ
Borussia Dortmund cruised into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with an eye-catching 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk at the Westfalenstadion.

The German side came into the second leg having claimed a hard-fought 2-2 draw in Ukraine, and Felipe Santana put them firmly on course for the next round with a thumping header just after the half hour.

Mario Götze touched home Robert Lewandowski's cross shortly afterwards, while Jakub Blaszczykowski all but made sure of Dortmund's passage just before the hour.

The emphatic 5-2 aggregate win underlined Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's comments that the Bundesliga team are one of the favourites to win this year's competition.
