Jan Vertonghen has called on Tottenham fans to get Wembley “rocking” tonight for their Champions League last-16, first-leg tie against Borussia Dortmund.

Home advantage is something big in the knockout phase in the Champions League.

Over two games we were the better team against Real Madrid, who were the eventual winners of the trophy.

It might give us an extra boost.” Spurs have never won a home knockout game in the Champions League but Vertonghen believes they are good enough to beat anyone and hinted they will take confidence from the likely return of Harry Kane and Dele Alli for the second leg in Germany next month.

We had some great games last season and we need that again.

More than 84,000 attended the home leg of Spurs’s defeat to Juventus at this stage of the competition last season, but attendances have fallen this year, with Wembley fatigue taking hold amid the constant delays to their new 62,062-seater stadium.

Although the club do not expect a 90,000 sell-out tonight — 72,000 tickets have been sold so far — there is no attendance cap and Vertonghen is banking on a special atmosphere.
