Tottenham Hotspur are looking forward to starting their new season in the Champions League this week against a tough opponent in the form of the German giants Borussia Dortmund. Spurs will look to bag all the three points from the contest but they will have to vie strongly against the former Bundesliga Champions in order to get their first points of the Champions League this season.

The North Londoners have one of the strongest attacks in European football at their disposal, with the English marksman Harry Kane spearheading their attack. He will look to get the necessary goals which will be required to bog down a resurgent Borussia Dortmund side when the two go up against each other at Wembley.

Tottenham has a few injury concerns in midfield with Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele out with injuries. Though Wanyama is not yet ready for a return to the pitch, there is a chance for the Belgian midfielder to get a place in the team, as he has been declared fit and also starred at the weekend in the match against Everton, which Spurs won by 3-0 to bag a second victory in the Premier League this season.

Here is how they might line up for this blockbuster tie:

Defence-

Spurs are looking forward to starting with the same new 3-4-2-1 team composition, with their new recruit Davinson Sanchez marshalling the backline alongside the Belgian duo of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld. The backline performed well in the last match and restricted the Toffees from scoring goals against them and will be expected to perform the same way in their match against Dortmund as well.

Midfield-

The four men midfield for Spurs have performed well in the last match against Everton and helped the attackers to get three past the opponents so as to register a much-needed win for them, which is sure to give them loads pf confidence before their mega clash against the German Bundesliga side. With Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies playing on both the flanks and the heart of the midfield being covered by Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele, there is a chance that the team might perform well and get a positive result under their belt from the first match in Champions League.

Attack-

With Harry Kane getting back among goals in the last match with a brace, Mauricio Pochettino will want him to score against Dortmund as well. He will have support from Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, who have also scored goals and are looking in ominous touch this season so far in the domestic competition.

Predicted Lineup-

Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Trippier, Dier, Dembele, Davies, Dele, Eriksen, Kane.
