    I've looked it up.

    In March 2016 in the Europa League:
    https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/fo...-before-borussia-dortmund-clash-a3201181.html

    There were unconfirmed reports of 17 supporters suffering injuries and one who had to be removed on a stretcher by medics. Fans’ accounts suggested any attempts to check tickets or search those entering the ground were simply abandoned.

    Tottenham have spoken to Dortmund officials to make clear their unhappiness at the stewarding and police tactics, which included the use of pepper spray.

    Dortmund have refused to comment but the city’s police force has promised to launch an investigation into the conduct of its officers.

    One eyewitness spoke of fights between stewards and supporters as they sought to enter the Nordtribune (North Stand), which housed the 3,500 Tottenham fans before and after kick-off.

    Anthony Lombardi, 34, of Colindale, told Standard Sport: “People dropped to the floor and were stood on, panic set in and just getting into the stadium safely became the most important thing. I was never searched on entering the ground, nor did I have my ticket scanned. I was very lucky. It could have gone totally wrong. There was a serious breakdown somewhere.

    “There were some punches thrown by Spurs fans, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a set of stewards throw punches back, kick random people and generally swing at any fan who came near them.”

    John Wenham, 26, of Enfield, said: “I arrived at the ground at 6.15pm local time (45 minutes before kick-off) and there were no directions at all towards the away end. There was a completely disorganised crush outside the away end and nobody told us why.”

    Emma Storey, 34, from Battersea, said: “The German police and stewards penned us in outside the stadium and shut the gates for us to get into the stadium. There was a massive crush for the best part of half an hour. The Dortmund fans caught up with us and were begging police to open the gates but they wouldn’t. It was genuinely terrifying — I was off my feet and unable to move any arms. People further ahead of me got pepper sprayed to keep them back. I have never been so terrified.”

    A Tottenham spokesman said: “The misdirection of our fans by police along with the closing of turnstiles created a potentially dangerous situation. The use of pepper sprays was completely unnecessary and unacceptable. We arranged for our fans to meet with officials of Borussia Dortmund immediately after the game. We have also spoken to officials at the club and they have taken on board our concerns.”

    Other Spurs fans said they were held outside the ground for nearly an hour, meaning they did not reach their seats until about 30 minutes after the game started.

    Some Dortmund supporters were also trying to walk into the ground at the same entrance.

    One Spurs fan wrote on Twitter: “In 21 years I’ve never been so frightened as I was outside the ground tonight. Horrific crush.”




    They beat us 3-0 in Germany with 64% possession and 19 shots to our 3. Goals from Aubameyang Reus Reus
    Our team was Lloris - Davies Wimmer Toby Trips - Tom Carroll and Ryan Mason in midfield! Then Son Eriksen Onomah supporting...er... Chadli.

    In the second leg of this same tie a week later, they beat us 2-1, so overall a 5-1 hammering.
    This time we had 61% possession and had 7 shots to their 8. Goals from Aubameyang Aubameyang so they were 5-0 up before Son scored.
    Same team but instead of Carroll, Eriksen and Onomah we had Dier, Alli and Lamela i.e. still playing Chadli up top.



    Then in Sept 2017 we beat them 3-1 at home via Son [Yarmolenko] Kane Kane and Verts got sent off on 92. We only had 32% possession at home, and 4 shots on target to get 3 goals.
    541 Lloris - Davies Verts Sanchez Toby Aurier - Son Dier Dembele Eriksen - Kane

    In November 2017 in Germany we beat them 2-1 - Aubameyang, Kane Son
    Equal possession and shots
    343 or a strange inverted diamond with a fairy on top like Lloris - Verts Sanchez Dier - Rose Winks Eriksen Aurier - Kane Alli Son

    See, we got them running scared. Dortmund just lost their first game in the Bundesliga this season against a team in the bottom three.

    Just seen goals, looks like perfect game for Son to star... if he wears his shooting boots.

    I love how the Prem schedules us to play on Sunday while Dortmund get a Friday game. What is with their inability to help their clubs have as much time as possible to prepare for important games?

    This was something that Mourinho used to allude to a lot
