Zenit St. Petersburg vs. Borussia Dortmund: 6 Things We Learned
Dmitry Lovetsky/Associated Press

Borussia Dortmund took a massive step towards qualification for the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday as they earned a 4-2 victory against Zenit St. Petersburg in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marco Reus put the visitors 2-0 ahead within five minutes. And although the Russians twice managed to pull a goal back, each time BVB responded by restoring their two-goal lead.

The result was important for a BVB side that on Saturday lost 3-0 to Hamburg, and Jurgen Klopp's men will be pleased with the result if not their performance overall.
