Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund are playing against each other in a 1/8-final match of the Champions League. Both sides are playing between each other for a third consecutive season in Europe, after their participation in Europa League in season 2016/17 and the group stage of the Champions League in season 2017/18.
At the start of January, many people wrote off the Spurs or at least didn’t give them many chances. Harry Kane and Dele Alli were injured, Son Heung-min was with the national team of South Korea because of their participation in the Asian Cup, while at the same time The Black and Yellows are leading convincingly in the Bundesliga and are the team with least conceded goals in the group stage. However, Tottenham showed that their reserve players could be count on and the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli will not affect the performance of the team. Yes, the Spurs were knocked out of FA Cup and Carabao Cup, but they lowered the distance to the leaders in the standings and are still in the fight for the Premier League trophy.
Borussia Dortmund began the year with victories, but since the start of February recorded three games without success. As guests, The Black and Yellows are not convincing and on several occasions didn’t take the three points despite the fact they were leading in the score. Over the weekend, the absence of the injured Marco Reus was visible, and at least on paper, it seems that it will be hard for Borussia Dortmund to take the victory in London. This season Tottenmah are one of the best teams at home in Europe and didn’t score only against Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Red Devils. The Spurs will want to take advantage before the second match on Signal Iduna Park, and we think that they will win against the leader of the Bundesliga.
