Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham - 3/5/19 -UEFA Champions League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham will meet at the Westfalenstadion for the 2nd leg of their Champions League tie. As it currently stands, Tottenham leads the tie 3-0 after the game at Wembley.

Dortmund will know that they are 3 goals down and that they must start attacking for the beginning of the match. It has been a poor few weeks for Borussia Dortmund and they enter this match in poor form having lost their previous game in the Bundesliga to Augsburg. It was a frustrating game for Borussia Dortmund as they controlled 72% of the ball and had 8 shots on target but failed to get any points. This match will be an insanely tough fixture for Dortmund as they will have to score 3 goals against a very accomplished Tottenham outfit.

Tottenham will be feeling relatively comfortable as they enter this match. The Spurs got a draw in their previous match which was against Arsenal. In the opening leg of this tie, Tottenham dominated the possession and scored 2 late goals to ensure victory. Son Heung-min was exceptional for Tottenham during the win as he scored the opening goal which set the tempo for the entire match. This will be a tougher match for Tottenham since the Westfalenstadion is a very tough place to visit. That being said, Tottenham have a 3 goal lead which should give them tons of confidence.

As far as qualification into the quarterfinals is concerned, I am going to pick Tottenham. The Spurs lead 3-0 and I don’t see them giving that lead. With that in mind, I am going to pick Borussia Dortmund to win this match. Dortmund have lots of quality and they will get huge support from the crowd at the Westfalenstadion. I see Dortmund winning but not by enough to qualify.
