Borussia Dortmund put the finishing touches to preparations for their Champions League clash with Tottenham. 

The German side were able to get a feel for Wembley and set to work on the pristine surface on Tuesday evening.

Dortmund boss Lucian Favre watched on with his coaching staff as the Bundesliga club went through the motions. 

The German side put the finishing touches to preparations for their last 16 tie

Jadon Sancho was among the players wrapped up warm during the light session at England’s national stadium. 

All eyes will be on the supremely talented English 18-year-old on Wednesday night but his preparation for the game has been far from ideal. 

He caused Dortmund’s flight to depart 17 minutes late on Monday after leaving his documentation at home. 

Favre has mischievously suggested that Sancho could be punished for his lack of organisation, though in the end, the plans were not significantly impacted. 

Midfielder Thomas Delaney suggested it had not caused much of an issue: ‘I didn’t notice.

‘It’s not a big city, Dortmund, so it doesn’t take that much time to get the passport.’

Sancho has become a vital member of the Dortmund team this season despite his tender age and Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be wary of the winger. 

But Spurs start as favourites in a last-16 tie many tip to be one of the most entertaining games of the knockout stages.
