Tottenham Hotspur are looking to extend their unbeaten start to this season’s Champions League campaign on a cold night in Borussia Dortmund. However, we have work to do if that is still to be the case, come the end of this evening.
Mauricio Pochettino decided on picking a strong team for the match to get over Saturday’s disappointing defeat to Arsenal. Here’s the team he picked:-
Spurs: Lloris (C), Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane
Subs: Vorm, Davies, Foyth, Trippier, Dembele
It has unfortunately been another frustrating half of football for Spurs fans with Aubameyang firing the home side into the lead after 36 minutes.
Christian Eriksen had a great opportunity to level the score but his shot was too close to the Dortmund keeper. From the resulting corner, the keeper pulled off a world class save from an Eric Dier header to once again deny us.
Here are the best action shots from the first 45 minutes of action at Signal Iduna Park.
