Tottenham Hotspur couldn’t have drawn tougher Europa League opponents and the London side head to Signal Iduna Park on Thursday night as rank outsiders to beat Borussia Dortmund.
Bet365 offer 6/1 about Spurs beating a German side who are pushing Bayern Munich all the way in the Bundesliga this term and managed a goalless draw against their Bavarian opponents on Saturday.
Dortmund are an 8/15 chance (Stan James) to claim victory in this first leg encounter, with Thomas Tuchel’s side the outright favourites by some distance and Borussia are 8/5 (BetVictor) to win this game without conceding a goal.
Mauricio Pochettino is likely to name a strong team for this clash in the hope of managing an away goal and you can get 11/5 with Paddy Power about Dortmund winning and both teams scoring.
A draw would represent a fine outcome for Spurs who are challenging hard for the Premier League title, with BetVictor going 19/4 about this one ending all square and they overcame Fiorentina in the last round with a 4-1 aggregate win.
Harry Kane showed his predatory instinct against Arsenal and the Tottenham striker is a 7/1 chance (Sky Bet) to break the deadlock, with the Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang available at 15/4 (BetVictor) to continue his amazing scoring streak.
If you think Spurs can go through over two legs (and they do have the advantage of playing at White Hart Lane second), then Stan James offer 7/4 that they make the quarter final stage of the competition.
William Hill offer 1/2 about Dortmund reaching the last eight and, with the Bundesliga probably out of reach after failing to beat Bayern, this could be a competition they take very seriously.
Tottenham might not have faced a team this good all season and Dortmund are 7/5 with BetVictor to lead at half-time and full-time in this encounter.
