A crisis can never be used well, but if we look at the current situation of Borussia Dortmund, then the BVB has taken those at the absolute worst. There is much to suggest that the Borussia give the already almost certainly believed championship title out of hand. In the DFB Cup, there was also a loss at home against Werder Bremen and in the premier class threatens the Dortmund in the second round out. Only a middle football miracle can bring the BVB still in the quarterfinals.
Dortmund vs Tottenham Champions League
Now we have already experienced some big international matches, also with participation of Borussia Dortmund, but to catch up with a 0-3 from the first leg against the Tottenham Hotspurs seems to be more than improbable in the current constitution of BVB. Therefore, we would dare in the duel between Dortmund and Tottenham also no prediction on getting ahead of the team of Lucien Favre. With the support of their own fans in the back of the Borussia but still try everything. Basically we expect an offensive spectacle of BVB. However, that could play into the cards for the guests from England, because a hit should in all probability be enough to cover the pair. Rooms are likely to offer the Spurs definitely a lot. Therefore, we can well imagine that both teams meet on Tuesday.
Maybe in the match between Dortmund and Tottenham a tip on goals from both teams is a good option. Maybe it will also be one of those evenings that go down in football history – but the faith is missing in the current form of Borussia. The kick-off to the second leg of the Champions League match between Borussia Dortmund and the Tottenham Hotspurs in Signal-Iduna-Park will take place on 05.03.2019 at 21:00.
Dortmund – Statistics & Current Form
The Borussia is on the verge of losing the championship in the Bundesliga. The comfortable cushion of nine points has been used up. Not a few signs indicate that from an outstanding season in the end only a decent. The team of Lucien Favre is currently overplayed.
“The 0: 3 is now. Still, it’s our job to bring top performance to the pitch. ” – Michael Zorc
Especially with the young players but you have to expect such form fluctuations. Added to this was the multiple weeks injury break of captain Marco Reus, who is the heart of this team. The solo effort of BVB in the Bundesliga has now turned into an exciting title race with FC Bayern, with momentum on the side of Munich. Dortmund is still in the lead thanks to the better goal difference. Perhaps a successful game in the premier class, even if it should not be enough to progress, is the kick for a great final spurt in the Bundesliga. The bookmakers at least assume that a home win on Tuesday is possible. Before the kick-off between Dortmund and Tottenham odds of up to 2.00 are offered to a home threesome.
Honestly, but it requires a big boost. Last Friday, the Borussia was over long stretches in Augsburg, only a shadow of his own. Due to individual mistakes BVB came in relegation candidate with 0: 2 in arrears. Paco Alcacer managed just before the end of the game only the 1: 2-goal. Thus, Dortmund has brought only one victory from the last seven competitive matches. Therefore, the optimism in Michael Zorc is also limited. However, the sporting director expects that the Dortmund will call for a top performance and at least give everything to maybe turn the backlog from the first leg yet. After all, it looks relatively good in personal terms at BVB. In principle, Lukasz Piszczek is the only player who is not available due to foot problems. Nevertheless, we already expect a rotation in BVB, because some players need in the current phase beyond doubt a break.
Expected formation of Dortmund:
- Bürki – Wolf, Akanji, Zagadou, Diallo – Witsel, Delaney – Sancho, Reus, Guerreiro – Gotze
- Coach: Favre
Last matches from Dortmund:
- 01.03.2019 – Augsburg vs. Dortmund 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
- 24.02.2019 – Dortmund vs. Leverkusen 3: 2 (Bundesliga)
- 18.02.2019 – Nuremberg vs. Dortmund 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
- 13.02.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Dortmund 3: 0 (Champions League)
- 09.02.2019 – Dortmund vs TSG Hoffenheim 3: 3 (Bundesliga)
Tottenham – Statistics & Current Form
Also for the Tottenham Hotspurs it was not the best spring in the club’s history. Until a few weeks ago, the Londoners were still in the middle of the title fight in the Premier League. However, Tottenham have also scored just one win in their last seven games in the league. The situation is comparable to that in Dortmund reasonably well, with the English have much better chances to move into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. As for the re-qualification for the premier class, it could be there again really tight. With 61 points, the Spurs are still led in third place of the table, but Manchester United and Arsenal have close contact. For Tottenham, the weeks of truth begin at the latest now. Although you can not lean back in the Ruhr area on Tuesday, but from the sign it is perhaps the easiest match in the coming weeks. Nevertheless, we would not give Dortmund and Tottenham a prediction for an away win of the English.
Last weekend, in the derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, there was only one lucky point win for the Spurs. The Gunners took a 1-0 lead after only 15 minutes, but in the closing stages, Harry Kane equalized on penalties.
“This point could give us a boost for the big game in the Champions League.” – Harry Kane
Arsenal also had a chance from the spot, but Hugo Lloris was able to parry the penalty and save his team the counter. Although the draw was successful, Harry Kane draws strength from this match to reach the quarter-finals in the premier class. However, the Spurs on Tuesday in Dortmund are already much weaker replacement, because equal to three major players will fail in Signal Iduna Park. Ben Davies (groin problems), Delle Alli (thigh injury) and the diseased Eric Dier will not be available. Still these failures can be compensated, but much should not happen with the Spurs, because on the bank it will be lacking in game-strong alternatives.
Expected deployment of Tottenham:
- Lloris – Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen – Winks, Sissoko – Son, Eriksen, Lucas Moura – Kane
- Coach: Pochettino
Last matches from Tottenham:
- 02.03.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Arsenal 1: 1 (Premier League)
- 27.02.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Tottenham 2: 0 (Premier League)
- 23.02.2019 – Burnley Vs. Tottenham 2: 1 (Premier League)
- 13.02.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Dortmund 3: 0 (Champions League)
- 10.02.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Leicester City 3: 1 (Premier League)
Dortmund vs. Tottenham Direct Comparison
Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspurs met five times in the meantime. All these games have been played in the last three years. The direct comparison speaks to 3: 2 victories for the English. In March 2016 Borussia won 3-0 at home. However, the game took place in the Europa League, which at the time was of no importance to the Spurs, because they were in the title fight in the Premier League and this competition was a priority. Dortmund was then sovereign on. In the Champions League, however, there were three losses to the Spurs in three games for BVB. Last season, Tottenham won twice in the group stage and the first leg in the current knockout round brought the English home 3-0 after goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente three weeks ago.
Dortmund vs Tottenham Football Betting Prediction
BVB and Spurs both have big problems getting the right results. Dortmund have only scored one victory in the last seven competitive matches. The English have also only once succeeded in the Premier League in the last seven games. But there was the convincing victory in the Champions League against Dortmund. But we can not recognize a momentum. An important statistic, however, is that the Spurs have all won the last three duels against the black and yellow. Nevertheless, we would not make a prediction for an away win in the match between Dortmund and Tottenham.
Key Facts – Dortmund vs Tottenham tips
Dortmund have lost all three matches in the Champions League against Tottenham.
The Borussia won only one victory from the last seven competitive matches.
The Spurs have also scored just one win in their last seven games in the Premier League.
We try with our tip rather on the possible gameplay. Dortmund is forced to throw everything forward. An early goal is urgently needed. Tottenham, on the other hand, is a team that can always score with little chance. However, Tottenham will offer opportunities due to BVB’s forced offensive play. A team must (unless it is 3: 0) always push for the next goal, which is why at Dortmund vs Tottenham a tip for passable odds on more than 2.5 goals logically.
Betting Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
