Tottenham Hotspur Preview

It was inevitable that come the end of August that Harry Kane would find his shooting boots once again, and Spurs’ star man was pivotal in them securing three points at Everton at the weekend. He scored the opening goal at Goodison Park with what proved to be his 100th for Tottenham in fortuitous style, as his intended cross fell inside Jordan Pickford’s far post to give the away side the lead. Christian Eriksen made it 2-0 with a powerful strike heading into half-time, before Kane’s measured finish from Ben Davies’ cross just seconds after the interval wrapped up an impressive victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Tottenham have started the season with two wins from two away from home - after it ultimately being their record on the road which cost them the title to Chelsea last term - and are yet to concede when playing away from Wembley. It is of course, though, that record at Wembley that is impossible to ignore, especially when taking into account that they lost twice there during last season’s group stages against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen. Pochettino’s goal will undoubtedly be to get out of the groups this time around and a win here will be imperative if they are to do so.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Victor Wanyama (knee) and Erik Lamela (hip) are both ruled out through injury. Danny Rose (knee) is still working his way back to full fitness, but Georges-Kevin N’Koudou (foot) is in contention to return.

Borussia Dortmund Preview

Borussia Dortmund’s perfect start to the Bundesliga was brought to a halt at the weekend as they were held to a 0-0 draw at the hands of Freiburg. That was despite Freiburg being reduced to ten men before the half-hour mark, as French winger Yoric Ravet was dismissed for a dangerous challenge on captain Marcel Schmelzer, who was forced off through injury following the tackle. Despite their best efforts, Dortmund couldn’t find the breakthrough as the ten-men held on for a valiant point, although Peter Bosz’s side are still top of the division after three games. The German side made the quarter-final stages of the Champions League last season before eventually being knocked out by Ligue 1 champions Monaco, with this the second time they have faced Real Madrid in the groups in two seasons. Under Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund won two and drew one of their three away games in the Champions League group stages last season, showing they can compete on the road in Europe.

Borussia Dortmund Team News

Marcel Schmelzer (ankle), Raphael Guerreiro (foot) and Marco Reus (cruciate ligament) are all ruled out here. Erik Durm (hip), Marc Bartra, Sebastian Rode (both groin) and Andre Schurrle (thigh) are doubts.
