For the second time in a row, Borussia Dortmund have been handed one of the toughest draws possible in the UEFA Europa League. The Black and Yellows will face Tottenham Hotspur.
Dortmund will play hosts in the first leg on March 10, before traveling to White Hart Lane a week later.
Spurs eliminated Fiorentina in the Round of 32, drawing 1-1 at the Artemio Franchi and winning the return leg 3-0 on Thursday.
Led by Argentinian manager Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs are playing their best season in years. Second in the Premier League table, they are still in the hunt for their first title in over 50 years, just two points behind Leicester City.
With star players such as goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, defenders Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld and midfielder Christian Eriksen, Spurs are a dangerous team. Harry Kane and Dele Alli are two of Europe’s brightest young talents, too, and they will give Dortmund all kinds of problems.
Their quest for the league title could help the Black and Yellows of course, since they might not play their best XI in the Europa League. Vertonghen is also set to miss the tie with a knee injury.
Still, this is a very tough draw.
Fans will enjoy a return to London and two games that should be brilliant to watch.
