Dortmund kept their Champions League hopes alive on Tuesday as they earned an impressive 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, advancing to the quarterfinals with an aggregate 5-2 victory. 

Three weeks after an evenly-played first leg in Donetsk that ended in a 2-2 draw, the Germans were decidedly the better side as goals from Felipe Santana (31'), Mario Gotze (37') and Jakub Blaszczykowski (59') made quick work of the Ukrainians.

BVB now advance to the quarterfinals with plenty of reason to be confident and some important points to be taken from the match. Shakhtar will also have lessons to take as they reflect on their defeat to the German champions. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a full analysis of the most poignant talking points from Tuesday's match.
