Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund face each other at Wembley Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Wednesday’s program. Spurs booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League by sharing the spoils with Barcelona at Camp Nou and it has to be noted that they are undefeated in previous four games in all competitions. However, seeing that the Premier League side will be without injured duo Kane – Alli against Borussia Dortmund, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts. The Millionaires, on the other hand, are enjoying a season to remember under Lucien Favre and they are definitely capable of spoiling Tottenham’s party at Wembley Stadium. A close encounter is on the horizon and we predict that the two sides are going to play out a draw in the first leg of the Champions League last 16, first leg.
