UEFA Champions League – Dortmund-Tottenham – Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham preview


 Dortmund may never have overturned a three-goal deficit, but they came mighty close against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals five years ago. That second-leg showing in 2013/14 can serve as inspiration for the hosts – who are in bullish pre-match mood – but Tottenham, buoyed by recent good results against BVB and with the prize of only a second UEFA Champions League quarter-final in their history within reach, should have enough nous to stave off a fightback.
