Tottenham vs Dortmund Prediction & Tips
Two European rivals who know each other quite well will face each other again when Tottenham face Dortmund in the Champions League (CL). The Spurs were eliminated at the hands of the German team in the last 16 of the Europa League 2015/16, but they took revenge in the group stage of the CL last season, when they won both games.
Tottenham qualified in second place in Group B quite dramatically (G2, E2, P2) thanks to a draw in the 85th minute against Barcelona, a goal that earned them the pass to the next round. This is only the third time that the team has classified this instance of this competition and has only passed the round of 16 on one occasion.
That draw against Barcelona was the last time that Tottenham tied a game (G11, P4 since then). The Spurs have not scored in seven of those 11 wins and, in their last 15 official games, they have scored an average of 2.33 goals per game.
Dortmund qualified for the fourth round of the CL for the fifth time and on the four previous occasions managed to advance to the next instance. He won Group A (G4, E1, P1) thanks to his solid defense, as he only received two goals against – the lowest amount of the tournament – and kept his goal unbeaten five times.
The visiting team is having a great season; leads the Bundesliga and also, his two victories as a visitor in the group stage of the CL, against Club Brujas and Monaco, are his only triumphs in his last 11 European away games (G2, E4, P5) .
Players to watch: Heung-Min Son have scored in the last three Tottenham games against Dortmund, while Raphaël Guerreiro (DOR) has registered four goals in the LC so far.
