Champions League Round of 16: Can Dortmund Overcome a 3-0 Deficit Against Tottenham?
- Dortmund will need to overcome a 3-0 deficit in the Champions League Round of 16 against Tottenham, and public bettors don't think they have any chance of doing so.
- Spurs are considerable favorites to advance but are they a bad bet to win the second leg?
Tottenham won the opening leg at home against Dortmund, 3-0, and are now in a commanding position to advance at -1500 odds.
There have been seven Champions League instances with a team taking a 3-0 win into the second leg on the road, and all seven of those teams advanced.
Wednesday’s second leg match in Dortmund begins at 3 p.m. ET and will be available on Galavision, B/R Live and fuboTV.
Odds (Tottenham lead 3-0)
Dortmund hold a slight advantage to win the second leg at home, and bettors have also been taking a chance on them to make the quarterfinal, moving the odds from +1000 to +800.
They will try to become the first UCL team to qualify after losing the first leg on the road by a 3-0 scoreline.
In order to automatically advance, Dortmund would need to win by at least four goals. A 3-0 win by Dortmund would send the game to extra time, while any other 3-goal victory (i.e. 4-1, 5-2) would see Spurs advance based on away goals.
Injuries + Suspensions
- Dortmund: Lukasz Piszczek (doubtful, knee)
- Tottenham: Harry Winks (questionable, hip), Eric Dier (questionable, illness), Dele Alli (out, thigh), Kieran Trippier (out, undisclosed)
