Michael Owen explains why Tottenham will beat Dortmund

Former England star Michael Owen has predicted that Tottenham will win their Champions League fixture against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Spurs had a poor Champions League campaign last season and failed to progress beyond the group stage.

They have been placed in a tough Group H alongside Real Madrid, Dortmund and APOEL.

Since Madrid are the favourites to win the group, it is vital that Mauricio Pochettino’s men aim to beat Dortmund since they could be battling with the German club for second spot in the group.

Though Spurs have thus far been struggling since making the move to Wembley this season, Owen predicted that they will win against Dortmund by saying, “It is well documented that Wembley hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Spurs but they are taken to right that wrong against a Dortmund side who were too good for the PL outfit in the Europa League two seasons ago.

“It is about time, however, Spurs made Wembley a fortress and what better game to start a sequence of wins than against a very good Bundesliga outfit.”
