Borussia Dortmund Coach Thomas Tuchel has joked that Barcelona’s comeback made his side’s 4-0 victory over Benfica look boring.
The Bundesliga side recovered from a 1-0 first leg deficit to sail through to the quarter finals at the expense of the Portuguese champions, but Tuchel feels his side’s result will now be forgotten about due to the exploits of Luis Enrique’s side.
“Coming into the dressing room, we were ecstatic about having won 4-0,” Tuchel told his post-match press conference.
“We thought it (the Barcelona game) was 4-1 at the time but it was actually 5-1 with two minutes to go – we all stood there like we were involved ourselves, in a party mood.
“We followed the last few minutes on TV and suddenly everybody was coming in and watching too. Everybody had the feeling that Barca would score one more and when it happened, it was insane!
“We thought before that it would be us who were the exciting news from today but compared to that we were boring!
“If anyone could have done this, it was Barca – congratulations to them.”
