The Champions League returns this week with both Tottenham and Man Utd in action. The Red Devils are facing a two goal deficit which might be too big of a task for the record breaking Solskjaer & Co.


Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham (0-3)

It is eight years since Spurs reached their only Champions League quarter-final, but they take a three-goal lead to Germany on Tuesday and no side in the history of the competition – seven have tried and failed – have ever overturned a 3-0 deficit from the 1st leg.

Neither side have been in a rich vein of form since the 1st leg at Wembley. Dortmund had 72ive. Both sides will be without key men but United are decimated by injuries and suspensions with French international Paul Pogba unable to play in Paris following his late red-card at Old Trafford.

United again showed their resilience and resolve to beat Southampton at the weekend but they have a mountain to overcome at the Parc des Princes where I expect to see plenty of opportunities at both ends.

History is against United – but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been breaking records since he walked through the door at Old Trafford.  If they were to score first?

Tip: Over 2.5 goals at
