Dortmund vs Tottenham
Tottenham faced German outfit Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the second leg of their Champions League tie.
Spurs came into the second leg with a 3-0 advantage due to their dominant display at Wembley in the reverse fixture.
However, neither Spurs nor Dortmund came into Wednesday’s clash in great form.
Dortmund had won just one of their last five league outings while Tottenham were winless in three.
Harry Winks injured
Given Dortmund’s commanding home record and their need to score at least three goals, it is no surprise that the German side had the better of Spurs in the first half.
Dortmund had several chances to take the lead in the first 45 but were denied largely by Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen.

Despite BVB’s control in the first half, it would be Spurs who started the second 45 brighter.
Harry Kane put Mauricio Pochettino’s side 1-0 up in the 48th minute, all but guaranteeing them a place in the next round.

Unfortunately for Spurs, they did suffer one big blow on Wednesday.
Harry Winks who recently recovered from a hip problem would be brought off in the 55th minute with another injury.
Perhaps it’s not meant to be a perfect night for Tottenham after all…

Spurs next game will see them take on Southampton on Saturday with Winks now likely a doubt for the clash.
