Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund have a decisive fixture against Tottenham Hotspur and anything less than a win will condemn them to the bottom of the group. This Champions League match, between Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham Hotspur, will be played at the Westfalenstadion on Tuesday, November 21, so read the preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
The Bundesliga side is going through one of the worst runs in their history and the weekend loss against Stuttgart (2-1) compounded their problems. The loss left them 5th in the Bundesliga while in the Champions League, they are 3rd in the table with 2 points. That leaves them level on points with bottom placed APOEL with whom they have managed a 1-1 draw in the last round. Although numerically, BVB still have a chance to qualify for the knockouts, it is the Europa League qualification (3rd in the group) that could be solace for manager Peter Bosz. The hosts have failed to win their last 6 Champions League matches while winning just 1 of 9 matches in Europe. In the last 8 matches across competitions, the German side has won just once (four losses, three draws) casting shadow over their ability to pick up a win in this Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham fixture.
Tottenham have been going great guns in the Champions League where they have brushed aside Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley. Even Dortmund were hammered 3-1 on matchday 1 at Wembley and Spurs are currently top of the group with 10 points. A win on the night over BVB will confirm Tottenham of the top position and a place in the knockouts. The weekend loss in the North London derby (2-0) against Arsenal has put a spanner in Mauricio Pochettino’s Premier League hopes but he would like to continue the good run in Europe. Can the visitors pile up further misery on the faltering hosts?
