Spurs’ Champions League odds drop as low as 12/1 after Borussia Dortmund victory

Tottenham Hotspur supporters enjoyed a memorable night in the Champions League on Wednesday, watching their side take Borussia Dortmund apart with a wonderful second-half performance.

Given the fact that they were without Harry Kane, Dele Alli and their two recognised left-backs in Danny Rose and Ben Davies, it’s fair to say few were expecting such a convincing victory over the Bundesliga leaders.

Yet after a tepid first-half, the game came to life early in the second for Tottenham when Heung-Min Son volleyed home Jan Vertonghen’s pinpoint cross. Vertonghen, playing in an unfamiliar left wing-back role, then got on the scoresheet himself next, before Fernando Llorente appeared to put the tie to bed with a glancing header.

Only an effort of titanic proportions will see Dortmund avoid elimination from the competition at the first hurdle of the knockout phase and would take something similar to what Liverpool produced against them in the Europa League back in 2016.

The result should also give Liverpool supporters hope heading into their contest against Bayern Munich next week, who currently trail Dortmund by five points at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Odds-changing result

Spurs are certainly still a long way from lifting the Champions League trophy on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, but last night’s result will certainly breed confidence that they can be competitive this season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team were decisive in their performance, seeing off one of the form sides in Europe’s top five leagues that featured one of the brightest young talents in the Champions League in Jadon Sancho.

Heading into last night’s game, Tottenham were priced as 33/1 outsiders to win the Champions League this season, but their price has now dipped as low as 12/1 with Paddy Power. Winning such a game without two of their best players was extremely impressive and has been reflected in their price. Their biggest price is still 17/1 with Unibet.

If they are able to achieve such a result without their best player and influential midfielder, then they could well be a real force once a rested and fit Kane and Alli are back in the starting XI at the latter stages.

As for beaten finalists in 2013 Dortmund, they were 25/1 at the start of the night but the defeat has now seen them moved to 150/1 underdogs and will need a miracle in the second leg to overcome the three-goal deficit. Their nightmare relationship with Wembley continued last night, having lost the Champions League final under Jurgen Klopp to Bayern nearly six years ago.

After the first four matches of the knockout stages Tottenham and PSG look to have booked themselves a place in the quarter-finals, while the clashes between Roma and Porto and Ajax and Real Madrid are still up in the air.
