It appears that plenty of Spurs fans are feeling confident heading into Wednesday's first-leg of their Champions League last 16 tie judging by the responses to Moussa Sissoko's tweet.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will be hoping to seize the advantage ahead of next month's second-leg when they meet Borussia Dortmund at Wembley tomorrow.

 

Spurs go into the game off the back of three straight wins in the Premier League, with Watford, Newcastle and Leicester all coming out second best at the national stadium in recent times.

Dortmund meanwhile, actually go into Wednesday's game off the back of an underwhelming run. They have drawn their last three games in all competitions. However, they remain five points clear of Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga, so Pochettino's side will be under no illusions regarding how tough a fixture it will be.

If Spurs are going to take a lead into the second-leg, Sissoko is one of the players that will need to perform. The Frenchman has been superb in recent weeks, and his partnership with Harry Winks has been a revelation for Tottenham this term.

Sissoko has certainly won the fans over with his performances this term. So it is no surprise that plenty of supporters were issuing rallying cries on social media as the midfielder posted a picture from the training ground to help whet the appetite for what promises to be a fantastic contest.
