Tottenham Hotspur vs Borussia Dortmund : Danny Rose has been deemed not fit enough to start so it looks as if centre-back Jan Vertonghen will have to play left-back. That is more than likely going to see him up against Jadon Sancho, who has been giving Bundesliga defenders nightmares all season.

Heung-Min Son has stepped into the limelight in the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli and Spurs will again be looking to him at Wembley. The South Korean has scored 10 goals in his last 11 matches, including three in three which has helped Spurs to nine Premier League points.
Spurs, who beat Dortmund twice in last season’s group stage, have also picked up results against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus and Vertonghen is confident Tottenham can reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2011.
“We can beat anyone,” the Belgian said. “We have shown that last year. Over two games we were the better team against Real Madrid who were the eventual winners of the trophy.
“That is why it was a shame we could not do better last year because we felt we should have done better. That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year.”Tottenham will hand a fitness test to Rose ahead of the Champions League clash after he suffered a wound to his shin in Sunday’s win over Leicester and will be assessed.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino, talking about Rose, said: “It’s impossible for him to start from the beginning, we need to assess in the morning whether he will be on the bench.”
Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring) and Ben Davies (groin) are all injured but Eric Dier (virus) and Erik Lamela (back spasm) are fit.
Dortmund will be without Marco Reus, who is out with a muscle injury, while full-back Lukasz Piszczek is also out (heel), alongside Jlian Weigl (illness) and Paco Alcacer (shoulder).
Thomas Delaney could potentially return to the team, while Mario Gotze is likely to start up front.
