Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA Champions League Group-stage – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 13th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium.
Borussia Dortmund are leaving for the capital of London to meet Tottenham in the first duel of the group stage of the most prestigious competition.
Tottenham are starting the Champions League in the group stage. Last year, they failed to go through the group stage where there also were CSKA Moscow, Bayer Leverkusen, and Monaco.
They are coming from their second win in the Premier League. Currently, they are the fifth-ranked, with two wins, one draw, and one loss. Interestingly, they’ve failed to win at home; both wins were gained away.
Their squad has recently been improved with Aurier from PSG, Sanchez from Ajax, and Liorente from Swansea, who will be a substitute for Kane.
They too are starting in the group stage. Last year, they were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Monaco. They lost with a combined score of 3 – 6.
They are coming from their first draw, after two initial clean-sheets wins, in the Bundesliga. Currently, they are the first-ranked in Germany.
Recently, they were left without Dembele, who was transferred to Barcelona for € 105M. Hopefully their recent reinforcement, attacker Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kyiv, will prove to be a valuable player. Also, it’s great they kept Aubameyang, who scored amazing 31 goals during the previous season of Bundesliga and 7 goals in the Champions League.
Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund: Head to head
The only time the two met was in season 2015/2016 of UEFA Europe League. They encountered in the 8th finals, where Tottenham were defeated with a combined score of 5-1. At Wembley, they lost the game on 1-2 ft score-line.
Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund: Predictions
There is plenty of quality in both teams and it is hard to separate them on paper. Yet, we believe the Wembley woes could come back to haunt the Spurs once again. And it won’t be a bad idea to back Dortmund to kick start their Champions League campaign with a decent win on Wednesday.
