A cute and classic duel of second places.
Tottenham and Dortmund have a couple of things in common: they will coincide in the Champions eighth and both seek prominence. They have everything to shine, even the Germans have seen very well, but it is not enough.
The Pochettino sub-championships are not enough. It is not enough to support you in Kane and Eriksen so that you do not sign.
It was not enough the Rock n’Roll of the Klopp’s team. It is not enough to shine in the initial section of the Bundesliga.
And, even more important, it will not be enough to have been eliminated in this round…
Borussia Dortmund likes. With Favre (and several errors of Kovac) have discovered that competing in the Bundesliga is not impossible. Nowadays they are as competitive as they are colorful, they have become lethal with spaces and seriously threaten anyone they face.
Reus has not been injured… yet, Paco Alcácer gets 10 goals every 2 shots (yes, you read well) and Jadon Sancho shows that leaving Guardiola’s City has been the best decision of his short career.
They are favorites in the key. They are able to classify.
The English are simply English. There’s no more. Sometimes everything seems a possibility, but almost always fail. The Tottenham fight seems to be in the Premier League.
“Europe is for adults, Tottenham.”
Also, not signing anyone in the summer (beyond being a pretty strange decision) can cost them dearly. Especially during a February full of matches.
The good thing is that the Germans could do them a favor and send them to concentrate again in the league, where they have to stay until they are ready for the next level.
The teams met recently, only Borussia Dortmund was the other one.
This time gives the impression of seeing them more solid, more experienced and more ambitious to classify. Everything can change, except the winner of this key.
The Germans are classified.
