Tottenham will be looking to finish the job and book their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League when they take on Borussia Dortmund in Germany this evening.

Mauricio Pochettino has recalled Serge Aurier at right wing-back with Kieran Trippier left back in north London while Ben Davies comes in for Danny Rose on the opposite flank. Spurs stick with a back three meaning Jan Vertonghen lines-up alongside Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez once again.

Harry Winks has been passed fit to return in midfield after recovering from a minor hip injury that kept him out of the draw with Arsenal and he joins Moussa Sissoko in the middle of the park. Eric Dier returns to the bench after recovering from tonsillitis while Victor Wanyama drops out.

Tottenham stick with the same front three that started at the weekend so Christian Eriksen and Hueng-min Son support Harry Kane with Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Fernando Llorente having to make-do with place among the substitutes.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Borussia Dortmund

Bürk, Wolf, Akanji, Weigl, Diallo, Gotze, Witsel, Sancho, Reus, Guerreiro, Alcacer.

Subs: Hitz, Zagadou, Hakimi, Delaney, Pulisic, Schmelzer, Bruun Larsen

Tottenham

Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Rose, Dier, Wanyama, Lamela, Lucas, Llorente
