8 goals in 10 games against Dortmund: Tottenham relying on Heung-Min Son

Tottenham’s biggest concern as they face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday will be where the goals will come from, but in Heung-Min Son, they have a striker who loves to score against the Germans.

From 10 games against them in his career to date, he has scored eight goals, with three of those goals coming from his four games against them whilst wearing the white of Tottenham.

What’s more, the South Korean international has only failed to beat Dortmund twice in all 10 of those meetings, coming in each leg of the Europa League defeat in 2015/16.

With Harry Kane absent through injury and Son in sparkling form since returning from the Asian Cup, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that Son can keep up his fine record.

Son is yet to score in the Champions League this season but has either scored or provided an assist in 10 of his last 12 Premier League outings, dating back to November.

Having scored the winner the last time the two sides met, in Germany, in November 2017, Son will be looking to score another crucial goal in the Champions League knock-out rounds.
