Tottenham Hotspur vs. Borussia Dortmund
Wednesday 13th September 2017
7.45pm Kick-off (BST)

Capacity – 90,000
Afraid its Wembley again. But don’t worry, I’m sure Poch and the boys are raring to get out there again once more….:
Because it’s time for our annual underwhelming journey to getting knocked out at the last 32 stage of the Europa League by some 3rd rate Euro Club.
How to watch it:
UK – BT Sport
US – You should all be at work at this time.
Rest of the world – Check for yourselves
Other options may also be available….
Tottenham’s CL squad is:
Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Paulo Gazzaniga, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Juan Foyth, Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier, Danny Rose, Ben Davies, Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, George-Kevin Nkoudou, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane, and Fernando Llorente
The supplementary ‘List B’ of youth players is TBC, though one of those would almost certainly be Harry Winks.

Tottenham - Lamela, Nkoudou, Rose, Wanyama all still injured. Dele Alli is banned.
Dortmund – Bartra, Guerreiro, Reus, Schmelzer all out. Durm, Rode, Schurrle and Weigl likely to be missing. Subotic a doubt due to illness.
