Many feared for Tottenham when the draw for this year’s Champions League group stage was made. After last year’s debacle which saw them drop into the Europa League, failing to progress in a group which, on paper, looked winnable, not many gave them much chance when seeing their name next to Real Madrid’s and Borussia Dortmund’s. Los Blancos have of course won the competition in successive seasons, while the Germans have a talented squad with a point to prove.

Yet, four games into the campaign and Spurs are unbeaten and favourites to win their group. Their victory over Real at Wembley was as equally convincing as their opening night win over Dortmund who, by contrast, have endured a disastrous European campaign under new boss Peter Bosz. Successive draws with Cypriot minnows APOEL mean they are locked in a battle for third place.

Despite Spurs’ disappointment in the North London Derby on Saturday, we think they’ll get the win here.

Form

 

The general consensus surrounding Spurs right now is that they are both talented and steely, but they are missing something in the big games and their hunt for trophies. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have an awful record against their title rivals away from home in the Premier League, added to by recent losses at Manchester United and at Arsenal on Saturday. But they showed at the Santiago Bernabeu that they are capable of mixing it with the big teams on the road in Europe. Dortmund are a wounded animal, and though they have lots of quality st their disposal, Spurs have shown enough to prevail.

For Peter Bosz, it was a fantastic start to his career in the Bundesliga, topping the table in the first few weeks of the season. But those days are long gone and they have not covered themselves in glory in the Champions League either. The 3-1 loss to Spurs at Wembley set the tone as Real Madrid outclassed them at home the following game before two frustrating draws against APOEL has left their chances of qualification for the knockout stages in tatters. Needless to say, they have fallen well short of expectations and will be looking to improve at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday evening.

 

Team News

Tottenham are coming into this game off the back of mini injury crisis. Hugo Lloris is back from a thigh strain, while Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Harry Winks are all fit again after withdrawing from the England squad, but Victor Wanyama, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela will not feature in Germany.

Luckily, Mousa Dembele is also looking match sharp after some time off. Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-Min could also come into the side.

As for Dortmund, they will be without Marco Reus, Sebastian Rode and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has reportedly been given special leave for the visit if Spurs. Veteran fullback Lukas Piszczek is also out with a knee injury.
