Tottenham will host RB Leipzig on Wednesday, in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. In London, the last season's finalists will take on a German team that is for the first time in its history at this stage of the competition. At Tottenham Stadium the game starts at 8 pm on Wednesday.
Unsurprisingly, this will be the first meeting between these two clubs.
The Londoners arrive at this game in a good moment, in a series of seven consecutive games without losing and with three consecutive victories, something that the Spurs had not yet achieved this season. In the Premier League, they continue to fight for places to access to the Champions League next season, but in Europe, certainly, José Mourinho wants to reach the last stages of the competition. Even without Kane, Tottenham's attack seems to be finding solutions - They scored six goals in the last two games and in the last five meetings three witnessed more than 2.5 goals.
RB Leipzig returned to victories over the weekend at Bundesliga, after a series of four consecutive games without a win (two defeats and two draws). The least good moment for Julian Nagelsmann's team already cost the lead of the championship, which is now owned by Bayern. Now the German coach has a deal with the experienced Portuguese, who has already lifted the trophy twice. Three of RB Leipzig's last five games have had more than 2.5 goals.
Tottenham: Moussa Sissoko and Harry Kane are injured. Erik Lamela is questionable.
RB Leipzig: Kevin Kampl, Willi Orban and Ibrahima Konate are injured. Tyler Adams is doubtful.
We believe in a good game, with two teams looking for goals.
