Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund / Champions League – This is a good season for both teams in the championship, with the proviso that Tottenham is winning a lot lately, while Borussia is in a series of unresolved results. That is why Borussia is the leader in Bundesliga, and Tottenham is only third in the Premier League. Both teams were eliminated from their national Cups, which is considered a failure, while Borussia has shown more in the group stage of the Champions League. These rivals met in the Champions League in 2017, when Tottenham celebrated on both occasions, with 3-1 in London.
Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund begins 13.02.2019 at 21:00 CET
Tottenham occupies the third position in the championship and they still should not be written off from the fight for the title of the champions, because they are only two points behind the leading duo. They have made four championship victories, while they were in only a couple of days eliminated from both Cup competitions. It is a little unreal that they still have not played any draws in the Premier League this season, but they did in the group stage of the Champions League, both as guests against PSV and Barcelona.
They were unluckily defeated by Inter with 2-1 as guests, after a goal in the last few moments of the match, while they managed to win only one point in the first three rounds, but still managed to qualify in the round of sixteen. They are mostly winning minimally and with a lot of problems lately, but also with a lot of luck in some duels. They defeated Leicester last weekend somewhat more convincingly with 3-1, but the guests have missed the penalty, and the third goal was scored in the finish. H. Kane and Dela Alli are still out of action, and Dier and Lamela are questionable.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – Alderweireld, D.Sanchez, Vertonghen – Trippier, Sissoko, Winks, Eriksen, D.Rose – Son, F.Llorente
It seems as if Borussia is hesitating because they have recorded three games without a victory. Specifically, they have made three draws in a row, but the one in the Cup has also marked the elimination from that competition after the penalty. In the championship they made two draws, of which the first in Frankfurt which was even good, while that Saturday’s draw should not have happened. Not because their rival was weak but because they had a lead of 3-0 against Hoffenheim at home. They had that advantage only 15 minutes before the end and it is really incomprehensible how they dropped it.
This is very similar to their last season’s duel against Schalke, when they had a lead of 4-0, but ended unresolved. Because of this draw, Bayern has come close to five point backlog and the pressure will surely grow in every new game. Before that, they need to pay attention to the Champions League, although they are shaken by the mentioned draw. It should also be said that this duel was played without Delaney and the best player Reus, who is not even in the team now. There could be some changes for this match, and maybe we see the recovered Zagadou and Schmelzer on the pitch, while P.Alcacer could also be among the starters.
Probable lineups Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Hakimi, Weigl, Zagadou, Schmelzer – Witsel, Delaney – Sancho, M.Gotze, Guerreiro – P.Alcacer
