Tottenham finished second in Group B in order to progress to the round of best 16. During their group campaign, they accumulated eight points from two wins, two draws, and two losses and went through thanks to a better goal difference than the Italian Inter. This is Spurs' third UEFA Champions League round of 16 placement, with their record standing at a win and a loss. Before the loss to Dortmund in 2016, Tottenham were unbeaten at home against German clubs, having won six and drawn once.
Borussia Dortmund are coming into the game after having finished first in Group A with thirteen points from four wins, a draw, and a single loss. They have a record of three wins and a single loss at this stage of the competition. It is worth noting that Dortmund have lost on three of their last four trips to England. This is Dortmund's seventh UEFA Champions League campaign in eight years and their 13th overall. The biggest successes came in 1997 when they won the competition and in 2016 when they were the runners-up.
The two clubs have faced each other on four occasions and of those four the point distribution has been equal. Both clubs managed to win two matches. It is worth noting that in them, they averaged 3.25 goals per game and that in three of the four, we have seen both teams score. Borussia will have a hard time in England considering that they are on a three-game winless streak in away matches compared to the three-game winning streak at home that Tottenham are on.
