Spurs have a tough test waiting for them in the first knockout stage of the Champions League, as they prepare to face Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in Europe for the third time in recent years.

The German side have been in great form this season and have managed to open up a nine-point lead over the rest of the Bundesliga, with champions Bayern Munich struggling to compete with them.

The fixture is also set to see England youngster Jadon Sancho playing against many of his international teammates, including skipper Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier.

Spurs met Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League in 2016, when Dortmund ran out 5-1 winners on aggregate.

Tottenham then did the double over Dortmund in the group stages of last season’s Champions League, with a 3-1 victory at Wembley and a 1-2 win at the Westfalenstadion.

The first leg fixtures will be split over two midweek dates, on February 12/13 and 19/20, with the second legs played over March 5/6 and 12/13.
