Spurs will be hoping Europe’s elite club competition season goes better for them than it did last season, where they failed to make it out of their group, instead finishing third and being sent to the Europa League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side know their home form will be key if they want to get out of Group H, which has been dubbed the ‘group of death’, with current Champions League winners Real Madrid and Cypriot champions APOEL Nicosia the other teams in the group.
Spurs will be without Victor Wanyama, who remains out with a knee injury, while Moussa Sissoko suffered a calf injury against Everton, which makes him unlikely to start.
Mousa Dembélé sat out the match at Goodison Park, with the Belgian struggling to play three games in a week, so expect him to come into the starting line-up.
Dele Alli is suspended, while Érik Lamela, Danny Rose and Georges-Kévin N’Koudou are all long-term absentees.
For Dortmund, captain Marcel Schmelzer is definitely out and fellow defender Marc Bartra is a doubt after suffering injuries against Freiburg.
They join the likes of Marco Reus, Raphaël Guerreiro, André Schürrle, and Sebastian Rode on the sidelines, while Jadon Sancho won’t play after he was unable to be registered in their Champions League squad.
