Tottenham Hotspur found out their Champions League last 16 opponents this morning, with the North London club entering the draw as a non-seeded runner up.

Spurs booked their place in the round of 16 with a late equaliser away to Barcelona last week, with Lucas Moura tapping home just five minutes from the end.

A PSV draw away to Inter Milan at the San Siro ensured it would be Spurs progressing, rather than their Italian counterparts.

As runners up in their group behind Barca, Tottenham faced a tough draw against the likes of Porto, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, PSG, Juventus, and Bayern Munich.

Porto and Dortmund would have been the more favourable draw on paper, but in the Champions League, anyone can beat anyone.

Spurs were drawn against the Germans Borussia Dortmund in the end, a team they beat both home and away last season in the competition.

Although Dortmund are in good form, Spurs will enter the February/March fixtures full of confidence.

Here’s what some Spurs fans had to say on Twitter:

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. In an ideal world I would have preferred the ageing Bayern, Real or Juve, Dortmund are young, fast, skilful and 9 point clear in Germany. However they can be beaten like we did last season. PSG would have been the worst draw from us, but Dortmund, if we pick the right team, we can beat. As Harry Kane says “bring it on” COYS
