Spurs under 19’s versus Borussia Dortmund: (match preview)
It feels like a long time ago when these two academy teams met in game week one of the UEFA youth league, Spurs recorded an emphatic 4-0 home victory over the renowned academy side. Spurs, who are in with a great chance of making the knockout stages, will face Dortmund at their training ground on Tuesday afternoon (kick off; 1pm) with the game being televised live on BT Sport 1. Top of the table Borussia Dortmund have three wins from four games and are on the cusp of qualifying for the knockout stage. The task is a big one for McDermott’s side, but if they can replicate their recent performance against Real Madrid, then their in with a fighting chance.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1)Austin, Eyoma, Lyons-Foster, Tanganga, Bennetts, Marsh, Bowden, Edwards, Roles, S.Shashoua, Sterling.
Subs from: De Bie, Hinds, P.Maghoma, A.Shashoua, P.Patterson, Griffiths, Reynolds.
My score prediction: 2-2.
One to watch: One of the best young talents in world football English winger Jadon Sancho will provide a real attacking threat if involved.
