Spurs striker Harry Kane wary of Borussia Dortmund threat ahead of UEFA Champions League meeting

Tottenham striker Harry Kane remains wary of the threat posed by Borussia Dortmund ahead of the sides' UEFA Champions League Group H meeting on Tuesday, despite BVB's current slump in form.

The north Londoners beat Peter Bosz's side 3-1 at Wembley back in September, with Kane scoring twice, but the forward, who sits second in this season's Champions League scoring charts with five goals (Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has six), is not being fooled by the ostensibly comfortable nature of that Matchday 1 win.

"Although we won 3-1 it was a really close game," Kane told Bild am Sonntag. "It's going to be a massive game in Dortmund in a breathtaking stadium with fantastic fans. Dortmund are obviously under pressure – they have to win both [of their remaining] games to have a chance of qualifying."

For their part, Spurs secured qualification for the knockout stages with a 3-1 win against back-to-back European champions Real Madrid at Wembley over a fortnight ago.

The roles are reversed from the last time the sides faced off at the Signal Iduna Park, when BVB prevailed by a 3-0 scoreline in the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 in March 2016, with Kane a late substitute.
