Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund: Expected Starting Line-ups – Nuri Sahin likely to start

Borussia Dortmund take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Europa League Last 16 second-leg clash knowing that a draw will be enough to take them into the quarter-finals.

Ilkay Gundogan and Sven Bender are doubts for the fixture but Thomas Tuchel has otherwise a full strength side to pick from.

Spurs will be without Jan Vertonghen and Clinton N’Jie remain due to injury while Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele are expected to be rested against Dortmund.

Pochettino fielded a weakened side last week but is not expected to make the same mistake against following the 3-0 defeat.

Turkish international midfielder Nuri Sahin is fit and is expected to start for Dortmund after featuring in the 2-0 win over Mainz last weekend.

Tottenham cannot afford to concede against Dortmund but their German opposition are in great goalscoring form this season having hit the back of the net 33 times in 13 Europa League matches.
