First leg recap

Timo Werner’s second-half penalty was difference for Leipzig — making its Champions League knockout stage debut — in a 1-0 win away from home in London over Tottenham. 

Storylines

RB Leipzig: Six matches unbeaten with just one total goal conceded in those matches, this team enters with its defense just in fantastic form. This is the best defense in the Bundesliga going up against a team in Tottenham without many of its top players who are still injured, like Harry Kane (hamstring) and Heung-min Son (arm). Expect the hosts to not sit back but to rather go at the opposing defense and try the kill the game off in the first half.

Tottenham: Jose Mourinho’s men are in a tricky spot. They must prioritize defending but know that they have to go in search of a goal. As a result, we will likely see Spurs play quite reserved and look to go on the counter with its speed up top. If RB Leipzig gets two goals, this one is probably over, and Mourinho knows that. Giovani Lo Celso will be key in the middle. If his creativity is there, Spurs will have a shot. 

Prediction

Timo Werner gets two more goals in this tie and the hosts cruise into the round of 16. Pick: RB Leipzig 2, Tottenham 0.
