After a long break, European champions will be back in action for the Champions League round of 16. Various matches are scheduled to be played this week. On Wednesday, 13th February 2019, Totten harm will welcome German’s Borussia Dortmund at the Wembley Stadium at 20.00GMT. The match will be perhaps the most entertaining action on Wednesday as the English Premier League’s 3rd placed Totten ham host Bundesliga’s leader.
Tottenham is seen to be doing well in the English League side and is looking forward to trying their hand in snatching the Champions League this season. Whether this is a wet dream or not, their performance is something to salivate upon. They are perhaps the only team which has shown consistency in the English Premier League. Their advancement the Champions League round of 16 was after holding Barcelona to a draw at their Camp Nou. Back to the home league, Tottenham holds their heads high with four games unbeaten in all competitions. However, Tottenham is going in the game without their main duo, Harry Kane-Dele Alli who are nursing injuries.
The Millionaires are having a wonderful season in the Bundesliga side. Under the guardianship of Lucien Favre, they are leading their longtime closest contenders, Bayern Munich by 5 points. With its current form and owing to the fact that Totten ham will miss their terrorizing, Harry Kane, Borussia Dortmund is capable of spoiling the party at the great Wembley Stadium.
Lucien Favre is not ready to settle for anything less in his first-year debut at Borussia Dortmund. Having managed to put his side on top of the Bundesliga, his focus is to win a double for Dortmund this season and perhaps this will come through starting this Wednesday as his side travel to Wembley. However, Totten Ham is not going to make it easy for them. The match is likely going to be a close encounter and our prediction is that the sides are going to play to a draw. All the same, a draw will play to Dortmund’s advantage as they would have perhaps bagged one point from England.
