Spurs’ record at Wembley hasn’t been great at all, and they face a big task on Wednesday against a Dortmund side who are top of the Bundesliga. See our Spurs vs Dortmund betting tips below including the best bet.
Tottenham failed to win this fixture time they met but they were without Harry Kane for both of those matches. This is a hard group for Spurs and they need to get something from this match if they want to reach the group stages. Dortmund failed to win against 10-men in their last fixture, while Pochettino’s side will be full of confidence following their 3-0 victory at Goodison Park. We think Tottenham will get off to an excellent start in the group stages and we are backing them to win as our first Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund predctions. Tottenham to win is valued at 11/8 with Bet365.
If Tottenham are to win this then surely they’ll go through their main source of goals Harry Kane. The Englishman has netted four in his last two matches in all competitions and will be relishing another one on Wednesday. Tottenham managed to score against the German side last campaign without Kane, and with a very similar defence this time round, we are confident that Spurs will be able to break Dortmund’s defence down, and Kane will be the man to do it. Kane to score anytime and Tottenham to win is best odds 7/4 with Boylesports and it’s the second of our Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund predictions for Wednesday’s Champions League fixture.
Both sides will inevitably be fighting for the final place in the group for the knockout rounds with Real Madrid likely to win the group. Neither side can really afford to start the group stages with a defeat, which is why we expect both teams to go for it from the off. Both teams scored in this fixture last campaign when playing at White Hart Lane, and Spurs, who currently play at Wembley, have been shipping in a few goals on home turf. Pochettino’s side have conceded to both Burnley and Chelsea in their two home games at Wembley, and with Dortmund’s attacking prowess, we can’t see them keeping a clean sheet on Wednesday. However, Spurs have scored in every game so far this season, therefore we are tipping both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as our final selection for this match. It is best valued at 20/21 with Boylesports.
Victor Wanyama is doubtful with a knee injury while Mousa Dembele could return to the starting 11. Dele Alli is suspended for the opening three European fixtures following his red card in the Europa League last campaign.
Marcel Schmelzer and Marc Bartra are not expected to feature for Dortmund aswell as Marco Reus, Raphael Guerreiro, Andre Schurrle, Erik Durm and Sebastian Rode.
The only two fixtures between the sides came last campaign in the Europa League. Dortmund won both matches, including their 2-1 win at White Hart Lane thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace.
