Good for Spurs: Borussia Dortmund’s injury problems get much worse

Tottenham & Borussia Dortmund

When the draw for the Champions League group phase was made, many people believed that Tottenham drew the short straw.

Spurs, who finished last season as the Premier League runners-up to Chelsea, were picked in the same group as Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

But after two rounds of the competition, Spurs are still 100%.

Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in their opener at Wembley, while Harry Kane inspired Spurs to a 3-0 win away at APOEL in midweek with a hat-trick.

According to the latest Champions League forecast, Tottenham have a 82% chance of reaching the last 16 of the UCL.

Shocker for Lukasz Piszczek

On Sunday night, Poland booked their place at next summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.

Poland achieved that goal after a 4-2 win over Montenegro. Krzysztof Maczynski, Kamil Grosicki and Robert Lewandowski all found the target in the win.

But the victory came at a big cost to right-back Lukasz Piszczek.

The Borussia Dortmund star was subbed out the game at the break, and on Monday there have been reports on his health.

It’s been claimed that Lukasz Piszczek has ruptured knee ligaments, which will obviously keep the Pole on the sidelines for some time.

Will Piszczek be out for weeks or months?

Piszczek has started every match for BVB this season.

Poland, of course, have already been hit by the loss of Arek Milik in recent weeks after the striker’s horror ACL injury.

At the same time, Borussia Dortmund, who have lost their opening two matches in the Champions League, have also been hit with bad news as Marco Reus’s injury timetable has also been pushed back.

For the record, Tottenham have to travel to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in their penultimate game in the competition. That’s scheduled for November 21.
