A difficult period for Borussia and really threatens the scenario that will remain without a very short period of time. They have already dropped out of the Cup when they did not expect it because they played against Werder on their field. And the championship in February was very bad, as they bundled out three draws and only managed to beat Bayer Leverkusen before the end of the month. Between the first drawers they played their first match against Tottenham, and a 3: 0 defeat clearly shows how they played.They hoped that the beginning of the new month could bring even better days, but on Friday they suffered a new painful blow. They lost to hosting this season of a very modest Augsburg with 2: 1, and now they no longer have any advantage over Bayern, which is topping the first place. It was only the second defeat of Borussia this season, but it was a weak consolation when it came unexpectedly and at an inconvenient time. It did not help that he returned to Reus, and because of injury there were no side players Piszczeek and Schmelzer.
Probable starting lineup Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Hakimi, Akani, Toprak, Diallo – Weigl, Delaney – Sancho, Reus, Guerreiro – P.Alcacer
And Tottenham has been struggling lately and are currently in a series of three games without a win. And this is not the first such a bad series, because they already had two bound defeats in two Cup matches in just a few days space. And before that, they have unexpectedly lost some games in the championship, and when they all come together, they look much worse in the second part of the season. They had one period when they were victorious with a lot of problems, but also a lot of luck and they were mostly victories with one goal difference. It should also be said that they were then tormented by problems with the absenteeism of the players, which was reflected in the game and the results.Against Borussia, they have really made a big impression on the first round, and therefore they can play peacefully in this round, but they have failed in the previous three rounds. It began with a defeat at Burnley’s home, and this was also a defeat in the city derby from Chelsea 2-0. On Saturday they played another city derby, this time with Arsenal on home ground and 1: 1 finished. They were very lucky because the guests missed the penalty in the final. There is still no Delhi, which is the biggest handicap for Tottenham.
The likely starting lineup of Tottenham: Lloris – Alderweireld, D.Sanchez, Vertonghen – Aurier, Sissoko, Waynama, B.Davies – Eriksen – Son, H.Kane
