With Dele All and Harry Kane sidelined through injury and an exit from both domestic cup competitions, the danger that Tottenham Hotspur’s season could fall apart seemed very real indeed, however they have strung together three wins on the bounce which has steadied the ship somewhat and they will look to make it four when they face Borussia Dortmund in the last-sixteen of the Champions League.

Spurs may have picked themselves up of late but Borussia Dortmund are in the midst of a wobble which threatens to undo all the good work which has sent them to the top of the Bundesliga table. Indeed while they remain in pole position, they have dropped points in each of their last two league outings and were dumped out of the German Cup by Werder Bremen last week. The very last thing they need to do is falter at Wembley this week and give Spurs the upper hand.
Can Dortmund stop Spurs in their tracks or will Mauricio Pochettino’s men make it four on the bounce? Tottenham have got things very much back on track but there’s not too much to get excited about given that their recent wins have been against the likes of Leicester City, Watford and Newcastle United. Indeed Dortmund are a much improved side to that which lost 3-1 at Wembley last term and they have plenty of firepower which can easily breach a Tottenham rearguard with just a single clean sheet in their last seven outings.
As such we’ll be siding with the visitors to end Tottenham’s run by grabbing a vital first-leg win at Wembley Stadium and putting themselves very much in the driving seat ahead of the second-leg in Germany, William Hill Bookmakers going 21/10 on Dortmund to win.
