Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund Champions League betting preview and tips
Tottenham performed something of the Great Escape to reach the last sixteen of the Champions League although they won’t feel as though this tie against Borussia Dortmund is a bonus game for them.
After all, Spurs earned the right to qualify for Europe’s top table in the first place by finishing in the top four of the Premier League, while they came back from the brink in their group by defeating PSV and Inter at home before landing a draw at the Nou Camp.
That final performance against Barcelona was particularly impressive and they now clash with a Borussia Dortmund side who have been taking the Bundesliga by storm this season and ended up topping a group that also included Atletico Madrid.
Lucien Favre has got this Dortmund side playing far better than they were last season when Spurs got the better of them home and away, with the Swiss having previously done well with Nice before arriving at the German club and making an impact.
At the time of writing, the Yellows are six points clear of the chasing pack and a further three points ahead of Bayern Munich, having scored forty-two goals in sixteen domestic matches and they have the excellent Marco Reus orchestrating affairs.
However, they also concede more than one goal per game in the Bundesliga and it’s hard to see them keeping a clean sheet against a Tottenham side looking to make home advantage count and get into the box seat as far as this tie is concerned.
Spurs play a similar style of football and we can see a wide open game, although the London side might draw first blood considering that they will want to be travelling to Germany with some kind of advantage.
