"Also we were a bit lucky because it was a massive confidence boost when Sonny scored - it made the team play much better".
Billed as one of the more exciting last-16 ties, the first leg started off a restrained affair as Spurs resolutely held back the Bundesliga leaders in the first half. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.
