How have Borussia Dortmund reacted to facing Spurs in the Europa League?

Tottenham Hotspur comfortably dispatched of difficult opposition in the UEFA Europa League yesterday evening, beating Fiorentina 3-0 on the night to wrap up a 4-1 aggregate win.

Now they know that they will be facing the current favourites in the next round.

Spurs have been drawn against Borussia Dortmund in the next round, after the German side defeated Porto 3-0 on aggregate.

The German side are considered the best team left in the competition by many, although Spurs would certainly push them for that tag.

Now the hierarchy at Dortmund have been reacting to the draw. Head coach Thomas Tuchel, who took over from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp in the summer, says he is excited to face off with Mauricio Pochettino - as quoted by Bild:

"I think it's a super draw. Super tough but also super attractive.

"We look forward to two exciting games, I am personally looking forward to a meeting with a special coach and also the special atmosphere in the second leg at White Hart Lane."

Another person from the club to react was German international and World Cup winner Mats Hummels. He believes his side will make it through to the next round, but knows it will not be easy:

"This is a super draw, exactly what we imagine for the Europa League and what we wanted after Porto.

"We are very happy. I see good chances on getting through but we will have to deliver."

The meeting sees two of the favourites go toe-to-toe as well as two of Europe's most exciting coaches facing off.

Whether Tottenham go through or not, it should prove to be a fantastic tie.
