They have been trailing at half-time in five of their last seven games, while five goals were conceded inside the first half hour of their six Champions League group stage games.

When Tottenham scraped through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, it was unthinkable that that they might play their next match in the competition with the team expected to line up at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Spurs face a very different Dortmund side to the team they beat both at home and away in last season's group stages - with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Andriy Yarmolenko, Shinji Kagawa and Nuri Sahin among the players to have left the club - yet their lofty position in the league this is still a team with flaws.

It might be the case, though, that two of Tottenham's most limited players end up playing a crucial role in the game plan to beat the Bundesliga leaders.

Here is what Spurs will need to get right to make it into the Champions League quarter-finals.

Perhaps the biggest worries for Spurs will be Fernando Llorente leading the line and the prospect of Kieran Trippier facing up to Borussia Dortmund's pacy, direct attacker like Jadon Sancho.

With Harry Kane and Dele Alli already out and Danny Rose not fit to start, there will be a significantly weakened home team on show.
