Where Will Spurs Play Their Champions League Quarter Final?

Tottenham Hotspur could yet play their Champions League quarter-final at their new stadium despite the fact it's still not finished.

In the past, UEFA have insisted that teams have to play their European games at one designated venue and it's understood Wembley has already been secured for the remainder of the season. 

But Spurs are exploring about the possibility of playing the home leg of their last eight game at the new ground, subject to safety and security clearance. UEFA have the power to make exceptions in certain cases.

Last night, Tottenham secured their place in the last eight with a 1-0 win in Dortmund, giving them a 4-0 aggregate win.  

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has repeatedly stated that he would rather move to the new stadium as soon as possible but the club has Wembley named as its venue on official paperwork.

Tottenham had hoped to kick off the new season at their new home but that was put back to September then delayed indefinitely as delays on the construction of the impressive-looking venue persisted.

The Champions league quarter finals are schedule for April 9-10 (first leg) and April 16-17 (second leg). 

Manager Pochettino said: "I expect to play in the new stadium. The wish is to play."

It is the first time that Spurs have reached the last eight for the first time since 2011. Pochettino was delighted with last night's performance: "It was fantastic, job done. It was a massive game for us, very tough, but I feel very proud.

"We fully deserved this. We scored four goals, did not concede, and this was against a team that is top of the Bundesliga with great players."
