[골닷컴] Reporter Kim Dong-ho = After a lot of hard work, Tottenham Hotspur finished first in the Champions League group and advanced to the round of 16. But even in the round of 16, Tottenham are expected to face a difficult schedule.

Tottenham Hotspur’s 2022-2023 season UEFA Champions League Group D Group D away match against Olympique de Marseille (France) held at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, France at 5 am (Korea time) on the 2nd. won 2-1.

Tottenham Hotspur, who won the day, secured their place in Group D (3 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, 11 points) and advanced to the round of 16. In the same group, Eintracht Frankfurt (10 points) advanced to the knockout stage as 2nd place in the group.

Against Marseille, Tottenham faced a bad news in the 25th minute of the first half. Heung-Min Son, the main striker, injured his face during an aerial ball game with an opponent and was substituted out. The loss was deepened by a goal in extra time in the first half. At this rate, they would not be able to advance to the round of 16, but would advance to the Europa League in 3rd place.

However, Tottenham turned the game 2-1 after Langre’s equalizer and Hojvier scored a comeback goal in extra time in the second half. Those who added three points advanced to the round of 16 as the top group in the group.

Tottenham, who have advanced to the round of 16, are awaiting a draw. Since they have advanced to the top of the group, they will face the second-placed team in the round of 16. Among them, Frankfurt and the same England team, which faced each other in the group stage, are excluded from the selection.

Potential face-to-face opponents Tottenham could face are Club Brugge (Belgium), Inter Milan (Italy), AC Milan or Red Bull Salzburg, Real Madrid/Leipzig/Shakhtar, Dortmund (Germany), PSG or Benfica.

It’s full of tough opponents. The road to the quarterfinals is also expected to be difficult for Tottenham. If it were Heung-Min Son, he seems to welcome the match against Dortmund. Son Heung-min is also nicknamed ‘beekeeper’ because of his strong appearance against Dortmund.
