The BVB boss paid tribute to his troops after they refused to ease up during Thursday's 7-2 demolition of Odd

Thomas Tuchel praised his Borussia Dortmund side's tenacity as they crushed Odd 7-2 on Thursday to seal their place in the group stage of the Europa League with a resounding 11-5 aggregate win.

Marco Reus led the way for the Bundesliga outfit as he applied the finishing touch to three impressive moves to seal a hat-trick, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Shinji Kagawa and Ilkay Gundogan also got on the scoresheet.

Dortmund were rampant at times against an Odd side who struggled to live with their pace and movement, Mats Hummels one of a number of players wasting late chances to extend their advantage even further.

"I am very happy," Tuchel said after a seventh straight win under his leadership. "The start was good, then we gave Odd their goal. First shot, first goal.

"But we continued to play very consistently, found room and created a lot of chances.

"There was a good rhythm. We kept the pace very high and achieved very spectacular goals.

"We did not let up, minute by minute we created more pressure. I am excited at how aggressive we played."
