Mario Gotze netted Borussia Dortmund's second goal

The German side came into the clash having claimed a hard-fought draw in Ukraine three weeks ago and Felipe Santana put them firmly on course for the next round with a thumping header just after the half hour.

Mario Gotze touched home Robert Lewandowski's cross shortly afterwards, while Jakub Blaszczykowski all but made sure of Dortmund's passage just before the hour. The emphatic win underlined Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's comments that the Bundesliga team are one of the favourites for glory in this year's competition.
