RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Betting Tips & Predictions
Jose Mourinho is no mug when it comes to the Champions League although he must realise that the odds are stacked against his Tottenham Hotspur team considering that they lost the first leg of their last sixteen clash against RB Leipzig.
The German side were deserving 1-0 winners on the night and have an advantage in addition to the away goal, with the Bundesliga title challengers now looking to get the job done at the Red Bull Arena.
Spurs pulled off some excellent results in Europe last season, most notably that famous comeback against Ajax, although it’s hard to make a case for them doing the same again, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min among the current players on the sidelines.
Mourinho likened the attacking situation to having a gun without bullets and they will face opponents who have scored thirty-one goals in eleven home matches this season, with Julian Nagelsmann sitting just a point behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table.
Timo Werner is the obvious danger man for the home side and the German forward has pilfered 21 goals in the Bundesliga this season, while the striker also scored from the penalty spot at White Hart Lane.
The recent devastating 5-0 victory at Schalke illustrated that we’re talking about one of the most impressive teams in Europe right now and there’s little chance that Leipzig will sit on their haunches and try to protect their one-goal advantage.
Indeed, the team are building up a head of steam after three consecutive victories and they’re facing a side who have managed just three away wins in the top flight this term, while a recent reverse at Stamford Bridge means Tottenham have now clocked up six defeats on their travels.
We’re happy to keep things simple and bet on Leipzig to win this game on the Full-Time Result market considering they will look to get a victory and put the tie to bed as quickly as possible.
