Three things we learned from Tottenham in win v Dortmund
Champions League is tough
The Champions League is tough. Borussia Dortmund looked like a really good outfit at Wembley on Wednesday night, and they dominated possession against a strong Tottenham team.
Despite losing, it’s fair to say they were the best team at Wembley tonight for chunks of the game tonight, and might have got something out of the game had the linesman not wrongly given Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang offside in the second half.
Interestingly, both teams were 40/1 to win the trophy tonight and that shows how far off the pace the Premier League is compared to Europe’s elite.
Tottenham are in the top two or three teams in England but they haven’t been given a shot by the bookies.
And that might prove to be right. Tottenham have got to play Real Madrid twice in their group and that could show us just how far they need to improve if they really want to challenge at this level.
