Borrusia Dortmund have played some sublime football this season with such a young and talented squad. They are currently sitting at the top of the Bundesliga table ahead of Bayern Munich with goal difference. However, the hosts have to out of their skin against Spurs in the second leg if they want to keep their Champions League hopes alive. The German side would be eyeing to dominate in the early stages to overcome the three-goal deficit.
