Leipzig vs Tottenham Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Leipzig can do the double over Tottenham in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg clash at the Red Bull Arena. The Germans claimed a 1-0 victory in the first leg and should have the edge over Spurs who have been poor in recent weeks.

RB Leipzig Form

Leipzig are coming off a 0-0 draw at Wolfsburg in a German Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. They could have edged it after having four attempts on target and more expected goals (1.08-0.58).

The Germans have been in good form lately and head into Tuesday’s match unbeaten in their last eight matches. Julian Nagelsmann’s men often do their best work at the Red Bull Arena where they have won seven of their last 10 matches.

The one weakness in an otherwise solid Leipzig team is the defence having kept one clean sheet in their last eight matches. 

RB Leipzig News

Top scorer Timo Werner was a second half substitute at Wolfsburg and is expected to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday. Defenders Willi Orban, Ibrahima Konate and Ethan Ampadu are all ruled out through injury alongside midfielder Kevin Kampl.

Tottenham Form

Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw at Burnley in an English Premier League fixture on Saturday. They fought back from a goal down with Dele Alli's penalty five minutes after the break earning them a share of the spoils. 

The result means Spurs are now winless in their last five matches in all competitions. They were knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich, suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Wolves and were also beaten 2-1 at Chelsea.

Manager Jose Mourinho is still unable to sort out his team’s defending having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven matches.

Tottenham News

Tottenham are without forwards Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min for the foreseeable future while midfielder Moussa Sissoko is also another long-term absentee. Winger Lucas Moura came off the bench at Burnley and is likely to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday.

Leipzig vs Tottenham Match Up

Leipzig are usually superb going forward, led by Timo Werner who has 27 goals in all competitions this season. The striker scored the winner at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and often combines well with Patrick Schick who has also impressed since joining the club in January.

The Germans are vulnerable at the back having conceded in seven of their last eight matches. They could struggle against the pace of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn up front for Tottenham.
