Tottenham Hotspur

Last updated: Wed 13 February 2019 22:37
In Brief

Very fortunate to make it out of the group. Yet to register draw in Premier League – 20 wins and 6 defeats. Davies, Janssen, Kane and Alli long-term absentees. Rose fresh concern. Dier and Lamela passed fit.

Looking Back

Spurs started this year’s group stage with back-to-back defeats and they were very lucky to eventually steal second place from Inter thanks to 2 dramatic results in final 2 rounds.

Domestically Lilywhites won 3 in a row in Premier League where they remain firmly in third place, but not close enough to trouble top 2. Set new Premier League record after going 26 rounds without draw – 20 wins and 6 defeats.

Looking Ahead

Coach Pochettino can’t use his big star up front Kane, scored 4 goals in 6 group stage matches, who together with Alli, Davies and Janssen is out injured.

Dier recovered from sickness on time, plus Lamela overcame back issue. However, Rose struggles with shin injury and even if making the bench his manager confirmed he won't be able to start.

Points of Interest

Last season sides met twice in the group stage, with Tottenham winning both matches – 3:1 away and 2:1 at home.

Borussia Dortmund

Last updated: Wed 13 February 2019 22:37
In Brief

Gave up a three goal lead at the weekend. Squad is significantly weakened. Manuel Akanji and Leonardo Balerdi longer term injuries. Lukasz Piszczek, Julian Weigl, Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer all out as well. Thomas Delaney back after domestic suspension.

Looking Back

No win in their last three matches in all competitions is their longest winless streak of the season.

Dortmund have given up leads in all three of their last matches.

Raphael Guerreiro is surprisingly the team's highest scorer in this competition with 4 goals.

Looking Ahead

Manuel Akanji is a longer term injury and has been missing from the squad since the end of last season. New signing Leonardo Balerdi is also unavailable.

The biggest injury news for Dortmund is that Marco Reus has not travelled to London with the team due to a muscle strain. He will be a big loss.

In addition starting right back Lukasz Piszczek is unavailable along with Julian Weigl who has been covering in the back four. Paco Alcacer has a muscle strain and does not travel.

The injuries will mean a shake up at the back. Achraf Hakimi will move to the right, Omer Toprak joins Abdou Diallo in the centre and Marcel Schmelzer should start on the left.

Points of Interest

Tottenham won both matches when the teams met in the group stage last season. The season beforehand however they met in the Europa League where Dortmund won both times.
