Dortmund are capable of scoring 3 or 4 and finishing this tie in the first leg, so it's important we don't concede stupid goals. Despite us looking shaky with 3 at the back recently I suspect that this is what we will play. I also have a sneaky feeling he will play KWP at LB (but I hope not). This is what I think Pock will go with....

Lloris
Toby Sanchez Verts
Aurier Winks Sissoko KWP
Eriksen Lamela*
Son
Personally, if Dier is fit I'd rather go with 4 at the back and let Dier drop in to make a 3 when we have possession to allow the FBs to push up and give width. I'd also start Rose at LB (despite how shattered he looked Sunday) as KWP is very right footed and offers little offensively from the left.

Lloris
Aurier Toby Verts Rose
Dier
Sissoko Winks
Eriksen
Moura Son​
This would be a good post for the match thread or team for Dortmund thread.

I pray we don’t have any fans this pathetic!

From Arsenal Mania when City smashed Chelsea.

“Considering they’re our main rivals for the Europa League I’m getting pretty excited.

Changed my ringtone back to the champions league anthem at halftime.”

To me, Sadio Mane and Klopp look like two separate people......i could of course be completely wrong.
If your manager says he doesn't, then you should follow suit. Mane celebrated another team's defeat via Instagram after Klopp bemoaned Walker after Pool dropped points.

What would be funny, is if Pool get smashed by Munich next week and then lose to United.

They will score an early goal, we will chase, valiantly grab a draw and get roundly ROASTED at their gaff later on. It's the hope that kills you. Etc.
A draw won’t be too bad a result as we may have Kane and others back fit for the return. I watched Hiffenheim come back from 3-0 at the weekend to draw 3-3. Dortmund look vulnerable at the back and especially in the last thirty minutes. Last season at Wembkey they were excellent for an hour but seemed to run out of steam and we controlled the game. So Insee us conceding early on but then coming back. Also we have Son who always seems to score against Dortmund.

Would be nice though to hear what Dortmund supporters are saying

Dortmund Fans (via google translate...)

Bürki - Piszczek, Weigl, Diallo, Hakimi - Delaney, Witsel - Sancho, Götze, Guerreiro - Paco

Alli will definitely be missing, I would not be so sure about Kane. He is supposedly back in training a few days ago and probably has no problems. But for 90 minutes it will probably not be enough, at least in hindsight.

With flanks, corners or standards like free kicks on our goal we have to defend it better without Akanji. Our weakness in high balls and standards will have Pochettino then analyzed to the game. Command: "Feist and draw corners".

My tip: We will survive in London and not lose.

Overall, I had promised more from Toprak. Plays for 10 years felt CL and EL and was always considered very good header. Because of his age and his vast experience, we need to be able to lead our young defenders, all 3 regular defenders, who will be in front of him if injury free.

But even a Julian Weigl, with his gaming intelligence, learns the job as IV in a few weeks and puts a Toprak on the bench.


Would be very surprised if he brought Kane. It would not be risk-free to let them play, because if they want to be fourth, then they need a healthy Kane. - Alli is probably missing for both games, but even that can change.


Ok, so Reus did not fly to London, according to Kicker. Well offensive we did it well without him.

But of course, when we talk about heavy failures of Kane and Alli, Reus is also a bank. And then Zagadou and Akanji.

Will be interesting.

Since unfortunately neither Akanji nor Zagadou are there and Toprak just is not good, the back four will probably remain as it was yesterday. Enormously important that Delaney is back.

Possibly. Yesterday's line-up is the best option, so that Philipp takes over the 10 again and works defensively well. The defensive will win or lose this game, we should play counterattack, so I could imagine Pulisic for Guerreiro.

After the mistake of yesterday and the cut in the cup for me the least important game of the season! if you can get something then only the championship!
a. Because with this team, which is still in transition, the CL does not win and
b. The decision / progress in such a duel will in all likelihood fall in the second leg, you saw yesterday again that even 3 goals to catch up !!

Will probably arrive, which is more important to them. But he certainly will not play from the beginning.
For BVB, of course, incredible luck that the two best are injured. Thus, there will be hardly any problems to move into the quarterfinals. With Alli and Kane I would have estimated the games 50:50, but then 80:20 for BVB


But with Reus and Akanji, two top performers are definitely missing and Tottenham Son is always against us. That puts us back on a 50/50 duel.

Guys, do not be lulled by the guy.
It is and remains open, no matter what the bird here is.


Tottenham can still be champions 5 points behind Liverpool and 2 on City, is still feasible. Better than Frankfurt, Bremen and Hoffenheim are the home even without Kane and Ali ...



23:27 - 10 Feb. 2019

Possible # BVB line-up for the # CL match against Tottenham Hotspur

somehow I doubt at all that we'll get something there.
the outcome of the hope home game was just shit, now reus is still missing, and oh

Apart from rapha and sancho, there are no great people left for the offensive.
Philip does not get underway, Larsen is now not exactly bombed, and of "I get baked for months not the slightest" -pulisic I do not even start.
after rapha and sancho there is a decline in quality, without reus we are weakened.
our defense is after initial strength with weigl as a solution now totally vulnerable. the akanji failure plus no DAZ hurts without end.

at least a draw would be ultra important at home.

These are the Spurs, not Real.
If we play against Hoopenheim as in the first half, we take 3 points there. Basta.


Where the Spurs is yet another caliber than Hoppelheim, after all, currently 3rd in the PL with 5 points behind MC, but with a game less.
Therefore, I hope for one point, but expect a narrow defeat.

I really can not understand why we mean some that's just Tottenham !!
Probably they have not seen the last two games of ours against them !!
Any chance you could post a link to the original site mate?

I'm not 100% Sure what's meant by Pulisic getting baked, doesn't that mean he's a stoner??
That's how I read it, "ever since signing for chelsea, pulisic just stays home getting baked"
Having now looked at the original German it says:

"ausser rapha und sancho bleiben für die offensiven aussen keine klasse leute.
philip kommt nicht in die gänge, larsen ist jetzt auch nicht gerade bombe, und von "ich kriege seit monaten nicht das geringste gebacken"-pulisic fang ich gar nicht erst an.
"

Basically "get something baked" is an expression in German that translate as "get something done" or even "sort something out" but in this context the guy says literally "doesn't get the littlest thing done" which I suppose you'd translate as something like "can't even get the basics right".

So that whole paragraph is something like:

"Apart from Rapha and Sancho we don't have any other quality wide attackers. Philip can't get out of first gear, Larsen isn't exactly great at the moment, and don't even get me started on 'for months I can't even get the basics right' Pulisic."

Not really. He said ‘for me it’s not allowed’ yet his player is laughing at someone else’s defeat, which is exactly the thing that apparently isn’t allowed....
Well I can't imagine a scenario where Mane asked Klopp if he could post that and Klopp turned around and said yeah sure - that would be hypocrisy.
