Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham Betting Tips & Predictions
After watching a fairly even first half at Wembley, few would have predicted Tottenham running out 3-0 winners against Borussia Dortmund, especially with Dele Alli and Harry Kane missing for the Premier League team.
However, that victory means Spurs are in a very strong position ahead of their trip to the Westfalenstadion, with the London outfit simply needing to avoid a defeat by three goals or more in order to go through to the last eight.
Mauricio Pochettino will still be wary of Dortmund despite this commanding lead, with Lucien Favre’s side sitting top of the Bundesliga and they have been particularly devastating at home after winning nine and drawing two of their eleven matches on home soil.
Furthermore, there have been some striking home victories in the Champions League. There was a 3-0 win against lacklustre Monaco before a really impressive 4-0 thrashing of Atletico Madrid, a side who prides themselves on having a strong defence.
Marco Reus should also be back for Dortmund in this clash, with the Bundesliga team having to go hell for leather in their quest to overturn a large deficit and it should be noted that they were on top at Wembley until the second half started.
Tottenham simply need to make sure they keep things compact and they might well continue with three centre-halves and the deployment of Jan Vertonghen as a left wing-back which worked a treat in the end.
Whether Kane or Alli play a part in this match remains to be seen, although the visitors will still be confident of roving forward and getting a goal which would mean their opponents need five to get through.
Dortmund are certainly capable of scoring big totals at home but they are also prone to conceding as recent 3-3 draws against Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen will testify.
