Our match prediction:
Mauro Pochettino mixed the squad against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League last 16, first leg, and, as a result, his men suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to the Millionaires at Signal-Iduna-Park. The Spurs, though, returned to winning ways at the weekend, with the team beating Aston Villa at Villa Park in Sunday’s Premier League clash. Tottenham are fully focused on winning the domestic title and we predict that Mauro Pochettino is going to rest his key players in Thursday’s Europa League game against Borussia Dortmund. Thomas Tuchel’s men have been producing outstanding displays of late and, taking everything into account, the German football team are likely to book their place in the quarter-finals of the European competition. Marco Reus has been scoring goals for fun of late and the German ace who scored a brace in the first leg is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
