But with Dortmund not having yet lost a game at home before this tie and Tottenham only picking up one point from their last three games, this was always going to be tough for Tottenham. Dortmund needed at least three goals to have a chance of going through so came out all guns blazing in the first half.

Chelsea predicted XI: Dynamo Kyiv (A).
Chelsea will be looking to put Sunday’s setback behind when they travel to Ukraine for the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie against Dynamo Kyiv. Progression is all but secured following a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Stamford Bridge last week, although the Blues have been prone to capitulations of the highest order this season and as such complacency will need to be checked and rechecked over the course of the 90 minutes.
