Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre claimed his side provided a 'gift' for Tottenham's opening goal as the current Bundesliga leaders lost the first-leg of their Champions League last 16 tie 3-0. After having the better of the first-half, goals after half-time from Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente secured an emphatic first-leg win for the Premier League side ahead of the second-leg on 5 March. Speaking after the game to the club's official website, Favre admitted conceding two minutes after the restart was far from ideal, with the goal leading to a poor second-half display from his side. While Favre is enduring his most difficult spell as BVB manager since his appointment in the summer, the Swiss native is refusing to panic over his side's current form.
