Thomas Tuchel was left to rue an error-prone performance from his Borussia Dortmund side tonight.

The team from the Mediterranean principality were too good for their German opponents in Wednesday's (Thursday in Manila) quarterfinals second leg, winning 3-1 at the Stade Louis II to advance 6-3 on aggregate.
