    Llorente if fit to start Wiegl isn't a CB by trade and his physical power should trouble him. Also Son playing of him has proven to be a potent weapon

    No Marco Rues for them is as big as us being without Kane.

    Have to be still in the game going over there I would take a 0-0 draw or a any win with it all to play for in the second leg.

    So glad Reus is injured. Evens things up a bit with Kane out.

    I really hope they win Bundesliga but not CL though. We can beat them especially if Kane is back in the 2nd leg

    I hope we don't play this blasted diamond formation.

    Their form has really gone off the boil for the last couple of weeks. Obviously still a quality side, but it looks like they're quite open with all their recent opponents registering 12+ shots.

    This is likely to be a good contest, quite open. I expect both teams will score.

    If there left winger is half decent Trippier better be well protected.

    We should have been punished so many times yesterday. Any scout watching that game would have been amazed how bad he is right now.

    Son 8 goals in 10 matches against Dortmund. And with his current form, he will be heavily marked. Need second option with Moura and Lamela.

    They've changed their style this season so he might not get as much joy against them as he used to.

    A scrappy little 1-0 win by hook or by crook and I'd be delighted. Give the boys a few days away in the sun with their partners etc to take their minds off of things and then back at Hotspur way a week before we play Burnley with 3 months of pure focus on going for the title.

    Such a shame we haven't got Harry & Del for this one but if we fill up Wembley & give the boys a push we'll have a chance

    Sancho can play either wing, he will take Trip to the cleaners, Sissoko will have to double up.
    Man U and Leicester have both played the same against us with wide players staying very wide and getting behind our full backs. If Sancho gets the opportunities that Harvey Barnes got we will be out. I’m sure Poch will be aware and change things a bit.

    So, no more suicidally high line then?

    What can we expect?

    ....We better off sitting or pressing?

    Still lots of tickets available in the gods, in fact there's a lot of blocks that haven't even gone on sale fully yet.
    Looks like Dortmund might have returned some tickets too as it seems there's a stripe become available next to the away section.
    It's definitely not going to sell out, but the bottom tier and club Wembley will be pretty full.

    I agree with this, and given the away goal rule, it makes me a little nervous that even a draw Wednesday, if they score a goal or two, will load up the pressure on us for the second leg in Dortmund. But I still like our chances.

    Need to make the most of our home advantage in this. Need to learn our lesson from the carabao Cup legs.

    Thinking we need a 2 goal cushion to take to their place, but would take 1 goal if we keep a clean sheet .

    Midfield battle will be huge. Whoever controls it will probably win.

    Lloris
    KWP Toby Jan Rose
    Sissoko Winks
    Eriksen
    Moura Llorente Son

    In a mind to play wanyama but think going for it at home is more important. Having seen them play Saturday, wouldn't be disappointed if we played long ball to Llorente

    If we can beat the mighty Leicester we can beat anyone.
