Spurs have been resurgent in recent weeks, putting together a superb run of results in the Premier League, but tonight looks set to be a completely different test. The Bundesliga leaders are coming to town, and they’re after a result.
Ahead of the Wembley showdown KICKOFF have delved into the stats and drawn 5 conclusions on their 5 most popular betting markets.
Tottenham may be without a draw in the Premier League, but two of their last four matches in continental competition have finished on level terms. Borussia Dortmund currently top the Bundesliga standings, but they have triumphed just twice in nine Champions League trips.
This will be the fifth meeting between these sides since March 2016, and three of the previous four have seen both teams score. This has also been the case in 13 of Spurs’ last 16 matches in this competition.
Over the course of their previous 20 Champions League matches, Borussia Dortmund have scored an extremely healthy 37 goals. Throw in the fact that Mauricio Pochettino’s men are on a 16-match scoring streak in the competition, and there should be entertainment aplenty.
If Borussia Dortmund do have an Achilles’ heel, then it has to be their habit of conceding first on the road. In fact, the Bundesliga outfit have fallen 1-0 behind seven times in nine trips at this level, albeit that things have improved under Lucien Favre.
Son Heung-Min has been in terrific form recently, and he simply loves playing against Borussia Dortmund, finding the net in three consecutive games against them. In fact, the South Korean opened the scoring on the German side’s most recent visit to Wembley.
