Tottenham vs Dortmund Match Preview
Tottenham finished the last season in Premier League at the second position and qualified in the UEFA Champions League directly. In the first match in this competition they will host Dortmund at Wembley Stadium. After two games without victory, Spurs have managed to beat Everton away 0-3 and with the big motivation they expect another good performance and first win in UCL this season. Good news for Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is that Harry Kane “woke up” and scored two goals in the last game. On the other side, Dele Alli has been hit with a three-game European ban after the Europe League match against Gent last season.
“Last season was our first experience in the Champions League, previously it was the Europa League. That experience is important and now we know very well what the competition demands. Our objective is to win tomorrow. Of course our aim is to try to get to the next section.” – said Pochettino.
Home side won only one of their four European home matches previous season, so they will be looking to improve on that record against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.
Dortmund have started this season in Bundesliga very good and after three rounds they are standing at the top of the table. They have been played four games this season, three in German football league and one in German Cup, and managed to win three matches, while the last one in Bundesliga against SC Freiburg was finished without goals. Interesting fact is that visitors haven’t concede a single goal this season, so home side will have to do their best in order to hit the net. Aubameyang, who has already scored two goals this season, is very dangerous player, so Spurs will have to pay attention on Gabon’s attacker in order to make clean sheet. Dortmund have already played against Tottenham last year in the 1/8-finals Europa League and beat them in both matches, so they believe that can repeat that success and take all three points at Wembley.

Tottenham vs Dortmund Predictions
Both teams want to start with the victory in the new season of Champions League. Home side have very good squad, but it’s questionable are they capable to beat strong German side. Visitors have an experience playing matches in the best European club competition, so they are closer to win this game. However, I expect interesting match between Tottenham vs Dortmund and believe that “both teams to score” is the best betting tip for this game.
