Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The short-handed Spurs are hosting Borussia Dortmund in a contest which promises to be one of the most interesting ones at this stage of the Champions League. Despite the fact that Tottenham has massive problems with injuries, it is still expected from them to be aggressive and go for a win, as they play on front of 90,000 spectators. Borussia is coming to London with one thing on its mind, and that is to stay unbeaten. The Millionaires failed to win in the recent few matches back home, but that won’t affect their attitude for a tiny bit. After a long time, they have a chance to reach the final stages of the UCL, and they will try to use it.
Tottenham defeated Leicester 3-1, this Sunday, and did his part of the job, by staying behind the leading duo in the Premiership standings. They had a lot of luck to reach the round of 16 as they jumped over Inter in the last round of the group stage, leaving them and PSV behind, with Barcelona winning the top spot of Group B. Dortmund won Group A, with Atletico, Club Brugge and Monaco staying beneath them. Lucien Favre’s crew had a 3-0 lead against Hoffenheim and managed to get only on point from that contest, 3-3.
Hosts made three straight wins in the Premier League, defeating Watford, Newcastle, and the above-mentioned Foxes. All three matches were at Wembley, and the Spurs are red-hot at the moment when looking that. Though, what troubles them is the fact that Dele Alli and Harry Kane might not be eligible for this game due to respective injuries. It is a huge blow, which could be covered up in the domestic competitions, but when you face one tough team from the continent, things are much different.
The game against Hoffenheim was one of the most awkward the German team had played this season. They were dominating until one point and then just collapsed. It was a third straight draw for them after ones in DFB Pokal against Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt in the championship. Still, this crew is at the top spot in the Bundesliga and has enormous potential, which could explode at any given moment. The style of play they prefer is lethal, swift and ultra offensive. It is why 8 of their last 10 events finished with three or more goals, and just one didn’t saw both teams to score during that interval.
Latest Team News
Besides Alli and Kane who probably won’t play Eric Dier and Erik Lamela are also doubtful. But please check their status on the day of the game, because something might change. Ben Davies will be available. Except for Marco Reus who will be a game-time decision, all Dortmund players should be at disposal.
The two sides met four times since 2016. One pair of matches were in the Europa League and the second in the Champions League. Borussia had more success in the EL winning both of them, while Tottenham defeated the Millionaires in the UCL edition 2017/18. All games saw three or more goals, and just one didn’t end with both sides netting.
Odds and Predictions
The Spurs are the favorites in this one, and the bookies set 2.30 on their win. A draw is 3.50, while Dortmund’s triumph is valued with 2.90.
Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund | Top Betting Tip: Draw (2-2)
A draw is a product of compromise within our tipsters’ team. Both sides have their advantages, but neither of has something which will persuade us to bet on it. If Kane and Alli can’t play, a visiting team will have a slight edge. Now, the one thing we agree upon is the efficiency for which we all firmly believe that will be high. That means over 2.5 goals. Also, both teams to score is something realistic, so you might bet on that too, and make some combo wager. The final prediction, Tottenham – Borussia Dortmund 2:2.
