EUROPA: Champions League – Group Stage
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
Prior to the last but one 5th round of the current group stage of the Champions League the only leader of the 8th quartet (Tottenham, England) with 10 points has already ensured the berth to the 1/8 final.
The main opponent of the team of Mauricio Pochettino is the defending champion of Italy and whole Europe - Real Madrid with 7 points. But the other two participants of group H – Borussia Dortmund, Germany and APOEL, Cyprus with 2 points each are hopelessly behind and that is why will be determining the 3rd winner of the group.
The total fiasco of the German grandee
This football season Borussia Dortmund has greatly disappointed the fans. It is clear that the substitution of Thomas Tuchel on Peter Bosz didn’t bring a desirable result.
And at first, Borussia wasn’t a hopeless underdog on the back of Tottenham and Real Madrid but now the gaming crisis of the team of Peter Bosz is absolutely clear and is undoubtful.
The final aim of the vice-champion of EPL
The team of Mauricio Pochettino had won over Borussia Dortmund (3:1), APOEL Cyprus (3:0) and Real Madrid (3:1) during four last matches of the group tournament. And one more point the Spurs have earned in the away match against Los Galácticos (1:1).
By the results of these matches, the vice-champion of EPL became the leader of its quartet. But in order to win the final championship Tottenham needs 3 winning points.
As of this writing, the team of Peter Bosz had suffered one more fiasco and this time everything had happened in Stuttgart from the debutant of Bundesliga (2:1).
Alas! It is quite obvious now, that strong grandee from Dortmund as it was in the old times is not able even to struggle with the middle-level teams of the German football. There is no use to compare the game of Borussia with the game of the favorites of the Club championship of Europe.
Borussia Dortmund – 2.15, draw – 3.60, Tottenham – 3.10;
Tottenham (Asian handicap +0.5) - odds 1.76 Pinnacle
