"Looked what happened to Rennes, they had a game cancelled the weekend game to held prepare to play Arsenal", said Pochettino.
With the hard work done in the first leg at Wembley, Tottenham knew that only a monumental slip-up would cost them their place in the quarter finals, although did have to withstand a Borussia Dortmund onslaught in the first half.
"The first leg result and the momentum of the following league results are not supportive of progress". But it's impossible in this type of game, the last 16 with how important the game is, that one team had 24 hours more than the other to prepare.
Other major leagues often do everything to help their representatives in Europe by rearranging their fixtures, so that they can get as much rest as possible, something the Premier League has always been criticised for not doing.

"They played Friday, we played Saturday", said Spurs coach Pochettino.
"We need to forget the first leg, be very professional and win the game".
"We know very well that Dortmund is a great team, top of the Bundesliga because they deserve to be there, not because anybody gave them something".
Dortmund have been widely lauded for their youth policy and vibrant football this season, but against Spurs their inexperience showed in both legs, even if their style caught the eye on occasion.
"Now we played Saturday, Dortmund played Friday".
They will try to become the first UCL team to qualify after losing the first leg on the road by a 3-0 scoreline.
