Tottenham vs Dortmund: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Uefa Champions League preview
The Champions League returns to Wembley this evening as increasingly familiar foes
Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund go head-to-head for the fifth time in three years.


Following a hugely disappointing start to their Group B campaign, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claimed that his team achieved “mission impossible” 






by qualifying for the last 16 after Lucas Moura’s late equalizer in Barcelona dovetailed with a failure on Inter Milan’s part to beat PSV Eindhoven.


Dortmund enjoyed a more relaxed and straightforward journey to the first knockout phase. 


Losing just once en route to topping Group A ahead of Atletico Madrid by virtue of a superior head-to-head record.


Lucien Favre’s side is enjoying an excellent domestic season and is currently on course to end rivals

Bayern Munich’s formidable run of six consecutive Bundesliga triumphs by claiming their first title since 2012.


Tottenham continues their Champions League campaign when Borussia Dortmund visit Wembley in the last-16 first leg on Wednesday (kick-off 8 pm).


Danny Rose has been deemed not fit enough to start so it looks as if center-back Jan Vertonghen will have to play left-back. 


That is more than likely going to see him up against Jadon Sancho, who has been giving Bundesliga defenders nightmares all season.

Heung-Min Son has stepped into the limelight in the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli and Spurs will again be looking to him at Wembley. 


The South Korean has scored 10 goals in his last 11 matches,

including three in three which has helped Spurs to nine Premier League points.

H2H Analysis


The two sides have met on four previous occasions in European competition, with Dortmund breezing to a 5-1 aggregate victory in the Europa League round of 16 back in 2016.


They were also drawn into the same Champions League group last season, with Tottenham winning 3-1 at Wembley courtesy of Son and a brace from Kane.


Pochettino’s men eventually secured top spot in Group H as Son and Kane combined once more to cancel out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener in a 2-1 victory at Signal Iduna Park.
