GAME PREVIEW Julian Weigl Borussia DortmundTottenham come into this game off the disappointment of their defeat at Arsenal in the latest north London derby, which has left them 11 points behind Manchester City.In the Champions League so far this season, though, they have conquered all before them: first Borussia Dortmund and then Real Madrid, taking four points off the reigning European champions.Mauricio Pochettino must now weigh up whether to do everything in his power to retain that momentum in Dortmund or take the opportunity, with their place in the knockout round already secured, to do a bit of squad rotation.Harry Kane, Mousa Dembele and Christian Eriksen are among those who could use a rest but their absence from the starting lineup would be felt.The good news as far as their chances go is that at Signal Iduna Park, it seems to all be falling apart.After a strong start in the Dortmund dugout, Peter Bosz has endured a horrific past six weeks and has had his authority challenged further by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who publicly questioned a club suspension he was given for an apparent lack of discipline.last_img read more
