Borussia Dortmund started their Champions League campaign in a damaging manner as they lost their opening game away to Tottenham on match day one.

They will be looking to pile more misery on holders Real Madrid who are struggling in their local league.

They were the better team at Wembley but Spurs did a good job of taking advantage of their defensive frailties to punish them.

They are no strangers to facing Real Madrid as they were drawn in the same group last season and the Germans finished ahead of the Los Merenges but Madrid had the last laugh as they won the trophy for the second consecutive season.

Dortmund have won 5 of their 7 competitive games this season and lost just once – they secured 2 points from their 2 games against Dortmund last season and they will be hoping to do better with a win in at least one of the fixtures.

Real Madrid have not had the best start to the new season and they were beaten at home by Real Betis last week after conceding a very late goal.

However, they started their European campaign in a characteristically good manner against APOEL and they will be looking to build on that as they look to become the first team to win the Champions League 3 times consecutively.

They have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 2 against the Germans historically and they should be careful not to fall for the pace and finishing of Pierrre Emerick Aubameyang in this game.
