Spurs

Spurs finished as runners up to Barcelona in Group B, just pipping Inter to qualification with PSV the also rans. After 3 rounds of group matches Spurs had just a single point to their name with defeats at Inter (2-1) and at home to Barcelona (4-2) before a 2-2 draw away at PSV. They went on to win back to back home games against PSV and Inter before a 1-1 draw at Barcelona on Matchday 6 proved enough to see them sneak into second spot. Both teams to score? (yes) arrived in 5 of their 6 group matches.

Spurs are just 5 points behind Liverpool and Manchester City in the English Premier League title race and after a 3-1 home win over Leicester at Wembley on Sunday their home record comprises of 9 wins and 4 defeats.

 

 

Dortmund

Dortmund topped Group A ahead of Atletico Madrid with Club Brugge third and Monaco were the whipping boys. They won their first 3 group matches, the pick of which was a 4-0 home victory over Atletico. Their sole defeat came against Atleitco, 2-0 in the return in Madrid but victory in Monaco in Matchday 6 saw them top the quartet. All 6 of Dortmund’s group matches saw backers of both teams to score? (no) collect.

In Bundesliga 1 Dortmund hold a 5 point lead over Bayern Munich at the top of the standings. They have won 15 of 21 league games, drawing 5 and losing just the 1 although their last 2 league outings were drawn, away at Frankfurt (1-1)and at home to Hoffenheim (3-3).

Top Scorers (UCL Only)

Harry Kane (who has been injured recently) has scored 4 goals in this season’s Champions League for Spurs whilst Eriksen and Lucas both have 2.

Guerreiro is leading scorer for Dortmund in this competition with 4 goals and a number of other players have scored just the 1 

 

Head to Head

The teams met in the group stage last season with Spurs winning both games, 3-1 at Wenbley and 2-1 in Dortmund. 

 

Verdict:

I fancy this could be a tighter, low scoring contest than the betting markets suggest. It’s more on gut feel than anything as Spurs have done really well to keep their goals count ticking over in the absence of their top goalscorer but Dortmund will want to have them in range for the second leg and might not be as ambitious as they would normally be.I'll take a chance on under 2.5 goals/

 

Bet: Under 2.5 total goals at 59/50
