Where: Wembley Stadium
TOT vs DOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Tottenham Hotspur will host German giants Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League round-of-16 1st leg match at Wembley Stadium, in London, on Wednesday night (IST).
With just one point in the bag after the first three games, Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League journey looked to be over at the group stage.
But Spurs showed a hunger and desire which can only be matched by the real contenders and racked up 7 points in the last 3 games to advance to the knockout rounds.
Based on the last three performances, Spurs can’t be talen lighly even by the biggest of the teams in Europe. It won’t be an exaggeration either to throw their names as one of the dark horses for the ultimate glory.
Borussia Dortmund have been one of the surprise packages of the season both at domestic front and in Europe. They are leading the Bundesliga ahead of Bayern Munich, which not many saw coming, while they are also the best defensive team in the Champions League, having conceded just two goals at the group stage.

TOT vs DOR Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Tottenham Hotspur FANTASY PREDICTION:
Borussia Dortmund have a Champions League pedigree, winning the competition in 1997. They also made it into the final of 2013 where they lost to Bayern Munich.
Tottenham Hotspur’s best finish in the competition was a quarter-final appearance in the 2010-11 competition.
But such records may not help a team in away games and behind the home support, Tottenham can be a real force.
A draw is our call.
