Tottenham will travel to Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie with a massive advantage after they beat the Germans 3-0 at Wembley in the first leg.
Spurs know that if they can see out the game, a place in the final 8 of the Champions League awaits them, a feat which Spurs haven’t achieved since 2011 under Harry Redknapp.
However, the game will be far from easy as BVB are a strong side at home and have several players back available since the first leg at Wembley. The most important of those is undoubtedly their captain Marco Reus.
The attacker is arguably Dortmund’s most important player and he has been in fine form this season having scored 17 goals and registered 7 assists so far this term.
The German international has fired a warning to Spurs ahead of the second leg, insisting that Dortmund players believe that they can overcome the deficit and make history in the process.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 29-year-old said, “We have played many games in this stadium where we’ve written history and we are in position to achieve the impossible.
“It is important to believe in ourselves, and give a great performance. We need to find the right balance between defence and attack. We need to reach our peak, and score the goals in the right moment. But we believe in ourselves.
“It is important to be positive and really work hard and stop the mistakes because we know we can always score in attack. We have to be stronger, come out stronger; have the right mentality. We’ve shown that, I think we’ll come out of this situation.”
