Tottenham has circled March 5 on their calendar as the day that their star attackers, Harry Kane and Dele Alli, will be back to full fitness, according to The Telegraph.

March 5 is the date of Tottenham’s return leg against Borussia Dortmund, three weeks from tomorrow when they play their first leg at Wembley Stadium against the Bundesliga leaders. According to the report, Kane has made an impressive recovery from tearing ankle ligaments in mid-January, and could even return to the field as early as Feb. 23 at Burnley. Alli, on the other hand, has reportedly returned to gym work and could be back in full training by the beginning of March.

Alli has been out since mid-January as well after suffering a hamstring injury. Both players were expected to be out until mid-March or later, but their early recovery has provided a huge boost for the club.

Tottenham was bounced from both the FA Cup and League Cup in late January but have won three straight matches in the Premier League. While Dortmund seems the favorite in Wednesday’s matchup, a Tottenham with Kane and Alli back in the squad can take down nearly any team in Europe.
