While the Europa League will always be second fiddle to it’s more prestigious big brother, the tournament has been improving year over year and isn’t that far behind the Champions League in terms of entertainment. Entertainment will be front and center when two of European football’s best clubs square off at Signal Iduna Park in Germany as Borussia Dortmund hosts Tottenham Hotspur Thursday.

Both clubs enter Thursday’s match off of draws versus fierce rivals in league play with Spurs drawing 2-2 versus Arsenal and Dortmund drawing 0-0 against Munich.

Tottenham was very convincing in its matchup with Fiorentina in the previous round, finishing off the Viola 3-0 at White Hart Lane. Dortmund also had a tough matchup in the previous round, but dispatched of Portugal’s FC Porto 3-0 over both legs.

With the likes of these two clubs, Liverpool, Manchester United and Sevilla still involved in the Europa League tourney, there are plenty of big clubs left to compete for the trophy. Despite these two lacking any head-to-head familiarity, Thursday’s meeting between Tottenham and Dortmund should be a great display for the neutral fan and a great advert for the Europa League.
