Spurs: There is a huge injury issue for Spurs, with Harry Kane out and Dele Alli potentially missing as well. This week they returned to on-field rehab work and should return in the coming weeks, but if they can’t go in the first leg it will put even more pressure on Heung-min Son and Fernando Llorente.
Dortmund: Christian Pulisic and company aren’t entering this game with a ton of confidence after blowing a 3-0 lead over Hoffenheim in just 13 minutes. That huge let down at home on Saturday has the team entering this one with no momentum. We’ll have to see how that impacts their performance as it adds pressure to their Bundesliga campaign.

They take on the German giants with Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Ben Davies all definitely out, while Danny Rose is unlikely to start following an injury to his shin against Leicester City.This leaves manager Mauricio Pochettino with a number of selection headaches going into the match but this could lead to him springing a surprise against Dortmund at Wembley.
For quite a lot of the campaign, Pochettino has favoured a narrow midfield and an extra forward so we sense there is a good chance he’ll opt for this again.
Spurs started like this against Leicester City and created chances but the Argentine may opt to pick Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son together, ahead of Fernando Llorente, to give his side more threat on the counter.
As Danny Rose is absent from the start, Jan Vertonghen could play at left-back again, as he did against Newcastle United.Eric Dier would come in for starlet Oliver Skipp, pushing Harry Winks towards the left.
