What Trueform says for Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham
Tottenham took total control of their Champions League tie with Borussia Dortmund when winning 3-0 in London and can approach the return fixture full of confidence.
Spurs will also have fond memories of their most recent trip to Signal Iduna Park, when prevailing 2-1 during last season’s group stage.
A draw would more than suffice on this occasion, though, so 13/5 for that outcome is our opening Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
Dortmund travelled to Wembley with a big support and a lofty reputation after establishing a commanding lead in the Bundesliga this season but failed to bring their A-game.
To be fair, they were more than a match for Spurs during a goalless first half, with young England star Jadon Sancho causing problems.
He delivered a pin-point cross onto the head of Dan-Axel Zagadou, who forced Hugo Lloris to claw the ball away just before the interval.
However, Lucien Favre felt his side gifted Tottenham the opening goal just after the break and then struggled to recover.
“We played well in the first half, had a couple of chances and we defended very well,” he said. “The start of the second half, we gave it away.
“We should get the ball forward rather than try and play. When we lost the ball, the cross came straight in and that was in the back of the net.
“Unfortunately, that’s a gift. And after that, we tried but played a bit too hastily.”
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham’s emphatic victory came with the team once again missing key England duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli due to injury.
Jan Vertonghen was also deployed out of position at left wing-back because of the absences of Danny Rose and Ben Davies, but he flourished in that role.
Son Heung-min, who scored in both meetings with the Bundesliga leaders last season, volleyed home two minutes after the restart to shift the momentum in Spurs’ favour.
The outstanding Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente then gave Borussia a mountain to climb in the second leg.
Mauricio Pochettino beamed: “With all the circumstances we have, the team is fighting, the team is getting results. I feel so proud for that. My players are heroes.”
Vertonghen added: “It’s a great result for us. Obviously, we’re not there yet, but it’s a big step.”
Spurs will face a wall of noise in Germany but we still like 27/4 for a 1-1 draw to finish off our Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham betting tips.
