Borussia Dortmund Juergen Klopp could not hide his joy after his side advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Dortmund sealed their place in the last eight by defeating Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 in the second leg of their round-of-16 clash on Tuesday.

The German champions dominated the encounter at Signal Iduna Park from start to finish, with goals from Felipe Santana, Mario Goetze and Jakub Blaszczykowski sending the Bundesliga champions through to the last eight by a 5-2 aggregate scoreline.

The quality of the performance was not lost on Klopp, who told Sky Sport: “This is an extraordinary moment, and it feels like an extraordinary moment.

“We saw during the second half how strong Shakhtar can be if you let them play. But we played great for 80 minutes and did not let their offence come into the match.”

Klopp’s sentiments were echoed by Goetze, who was among the best on the field.

“It was an amazing match and we had great chances,” the 20-year-old told reporters.

“The first two goals made us very calm and, after the third goal, we played magnificently.”

Dortmund now turn their attention to Saturday’s Revierderby against Schalke,
