Tottenham take on the visitors Borussia Dortmund at “Wembley Stadium” in the first round of the UEFA Champions League Group stage. The match will be played in London on Wednesday, September 13th.
Tottenham have been fighting for the English Premier League champion’s title for last two years, but couldn’t become the best one at the Foggy Albion so far. Last season Mauricio Pochettino’s side occupied the second place in the elite division standings just behind Chelsea. After four gameweeks of the current season, “Spurs” settle on the fifth position in the table with seven points earned, having thrashed solid Everton with 3:0 scoreline on the road last weekend. It should be noted that in second consecutive Eurocups season Tottenham will perform at “Wembley Stadium”, having suffered at the major stadium in England within last season’s Eurocups. It is just a reminder that even though “Spurs” stay in great competitive form, Harry Kane and his teammates permanently fail at this particular venue.

Borussia Dortmund have not been broken in the regular time in this season yet and last time they lost was on the 19th of April. Peter Bosz’s team comes up to the fight in London with 362-minute run without conceded goals. Last matchday “Die Schwarzgelben” got 0:0 draw against SC Freiburg and currently share the first-third positions in the Bundesliga standings with Hoffenheim and Hannover, having taken seven points. Borussia Dortmund’s undefeated streak at away turfs counts for seven clashes covering five triumphs and two draws.
Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund met in the UEFA Europa League Play Offs in spring 2016 resulting in two victories of the Germans over the Brits with 3:0 and 2:1 scorelines. The rivals are nearly the same high level, still, the visitors show more consistent performance in the Eurocups. Therefore, I presume that “Die Schwarzgelben” will be able to pick up points in the forthcoming battle.
Prediction for the match: Borussia Dortmund to win with +0.5 Asian handicap (X2).
