Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig Match Preview

RB Leipzig are maintaining a strong challenge for the Bundesliga title this season and look capable of causing Tottenham plenty of problems in this Champions League round-of-16 tie.

Under their 32-year-old manager Julian Nagelsmann, the Red Bull-owned club are continuing their meteoric rise to the point where they are now contenders for all the top prizes and it is surely only a matter of time before they bag one.

Whether it will be this season remains to be seen – they have previously been runners-up in the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal – but it would be foolish to underestimate a team who are only one point behind leaders Bayern in the German table and finished clear at the top of Champions League Group G ahead of Lyon, Benfica and Zenit, none of whom are mugs.

With much-coveted Timo Werner up front, Dayot Upamecano at the back and January arrival Dani Olmo providing creativity, Leipzig are a very good team – and still something of an unknown quantity in the UK as they prepare for their first meeting with English opposition.

Spurs, meanwhile, still look to be missing injured Harry Kane. They are in good form with Heung-min Son having taken on the goalscoring burden in the England captain’s absence but have made hard work of their last two narrow victories over Southampton and Aston Villa.

In fairness, Tottenham’s home form has been strong under Jose Mourinho, much better than on their travels, but they still appear to be conceding too many goals and that is a concern against such a talented, up-and-coming outfit as Leipzig.
