This is the season where RB Leipzig finally announce themselves as a Champions League force, with the German side having previously failed to go deep in the European Cup and regularly featured in the Europa League knockout stages instead.

At the time of writing, Julian Nagelsmann’s side sit top of the Bundesliga and have to be considered as genuine title challengers, while they were able to win a Champions League group that also featured Lyon, Benfica and Zenit Saint Petersburg.

Leipzig were especially impressive on the road when winning away to Benfica and Zenit, while they finished off with a 2-2 draw in Lyon and will be heading to White Hart Lane feeling confident of getting a job done.

Timo Werner is actually challenging Robert Lewandowski at the top of the scoring charts in Germany, with the striker having plundered 24 goals and he might relish facing a Tottenham team who shipped ten goals against Bayern Munich during the group stage.

Leipzig have only lost once on the road domestically this term and will face a Tottenham side who could be without Harry Kane for this clash depending on whether the team captain recovers in time from injury.

Spurs sit sixth in the Premier League and haven’t looked particularly convincing under Jose Mourinho, with clean sheets at a premium despite the Portuguese’s reputation for having a mean defence.

While the London side are warm favourites to win the game, we’re not sure that they should be that short against one of the best teams in Europe and feel as though getting with the draw and the visitors is the best way forward.

Spurs have only won 60% of their home matches in the Premier League and Mourinho will be obsessed with not conceding an away goal to the extent that it could be a cagey encounter.
