Tottenham Hotspur v Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips Explained


Tottenham Hotspur could not have warmed up for this match any better, having returned from the international break with a superb 3-0 win at Everton this past weekend. Goodison Park has been a difficult venue for any team to to visit for quite some time now, but Harry Kane struck twice and Christian Eriksen also got on the scoresheet as Spurs cruised to victory – and the scoreline could have been even more convincing had they not wasted several other chances.

“I think it was a very solid performance,” manager Mauricio Pochettino said afterwards. “I think we played well, and fully deserved in the end the result and to take the three points. I'm very pleased. We have ahead a very busy period and this was a very important victory for us.”

Spurs are going to need another ‘very solid performance’ if they are to claim all three points when they kick-off their Champions League campaign on Wednesday night. Borussia Dortmund are the visitors to Wembley Stadium and the Bundesliga giants arrive having not lost any of their competitive fixtures in 90 minutes – their sole defeat was a penalty shoot-out loss to Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup. So can Spurs get the job done?

If they are they are going to have to overcome their Wembley hoodoo. Spurs have played 12 competitive matches at the national stadium since it was rebuilt and they have managed only two victories in that time, losing to Chelsea and drawing with Burnley so far this season. They managed just one Champions League win at this venue last season too, so this wretched form will be hanging over them like a dark cloud when they head out onto the pitch for what has to be considered a ‘must-win’ game – they also have Real Madrid in this ‘Group of Death’.

Sadly for Spurs fans, I do not expect them to record a rare Wembley win here. Dortmund boast some real quality in the likes of Mario Gotze and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the latter could punish the slightest mistake because he continues to be one of the most lethal strikers in world football. Tottenham have some serious quality of their own though and I can see this match ending in a draw, which would not be a terrible for either side in a group where at least one big gun will bow out.

With so much attacking talent on show we should see both teams find the back of the net at Wembley Stadium, and of course this means there are plenty of options in the goal-scoring markets. For me the man to back is Aubameyang. The Dortmund striker has scored in four of his five competitive appearances so far this season, netting six times in total, and his record in European football is impressive – he averages almost a goal every other game. The Gabon international can get off the mark in this season’s Champions League at Spurs’ expense.
