Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund – Wednesday 13th September 2017 – 19:45 - BT Sports 

Spurs are 13/10 with Harry Kane at 3/1 to score first.

Tottenham face Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday evening, in the first round of Champions League group stage matches this season.

Spurs come into this match on the back of a 3-0 win against Everton, an excellent result for Pochettino's side.

Harry Kane (28) gave Tottenham the lead midway through the first half, with a suspected cross beating Pickford.

It meant that Harry Kane scored his first goal of the season, and his 100th goal for Tottenham in the process.

Christian Eriksen became the joint highest scoring Dane in the Premier League (42), drawing level with Niklaus Bendtner.

Harry Kane scored his second of the game and Tottenham's third (46), effectively ending the match.

That was an excellent result for Tottenham, but it could have been so much worse for Everton.


Success Needed

Tottenham have had a mixed start to the season, with two wins, one draw and one defeat in their opening four matches.

Their record at Wembley is still under the microscope, especially after failing to secure a win against Chelsea or Burnley.

Spurs last win at Wembley came back in 2011, in the final of the League Cup, so they have a lot of work to do.

They face a Dortmund side who drew their last match, they have a poor record against the Germans.


Spurs Favourites

Mauricio Pochettino's side come into this match as favourites, with home advantage informing the odds.

This will be a tough match for Spurs, banishing their poor Wembley record will be a top priority.

Tottenham will be looking to secure their first ever win against Dortmund.

Unbeaten Start

Dortmund come into this match in excellent form, despite drawing 0-0 against Freiburg at the weekend.

The only incident of the match came in the 29th minute, when Yoric Ravet was shown a straight red card.

Dortmund dominated the match with 82% possession, 27 total shots but converted only three of them on target.

That is something that will definitely concern the management, they completely lacked creativity and the ability to break down ten men.

Sitting Top

Despite that disappointing result Dortmund find themselves top of the Bundesliga, ahead of Hoffenheim.

They have yet to concede in the Bundesliga, scoring five goals in the process.

The Germans are favourites to progress, they have a tough group with Real Madrid, Tottenham and Apoel.

They were knocked out of the Champions League by Monaco last season, they will be looking to advance further this season.


Dortmund Underdogs

The visitors come into this match as the underdogs, with home advantage informing the odds.

Dortmund will be looking to win the group, but double holders Real are the clear favourites to top the group.

The Germans will be looking to make it three wins in three matches against Spurs.

Dortmund are 2/1 with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at 3/1 to open the scoring.
