Tottenham vs RB Leipzig Prediction and Betting Preview, 19 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Tottenham vs RB Leipzig PredictionThe vindictive Jose Mourinho who has a lot of critics to prove wrong will alongside his Tottenham squad be welcoming Bundesliga high-flyers RB Leipzig to the London stadium in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Round of 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)
Spurs have been spurting with a harvest of goals since Mourinho sneaked into North London to pitch his tent with the Lilywhites. He’s slowly restructuring the team and injecting a winning mentality into the side Mauricio Pochettino had struggled to win a silverware with.

Indeed, Pochettino’s greatest achievements were guiding Spurs to a second-place league finish in the 2016/17 Premier League campaign and a runner-up finish in the UCL last term. Mourinho looked like he had everything figured out, helping Spurs sprout from the right nodes only for an injury to Harry Kane to come off as a nip in the bud, a huge stop to their development.

Another injury, this time to Son Heung-Min who had stood in the gap for Kane all this while has dealt a serious blow to the Lillywhites who would now be forced to made do with limited options in the attack. It's expected to be a nerve wracking encounter as Spurs would be looking to put behind them their humiliating defeat to another German side in Bayern Munich.

Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig Team News

Tottenham had taken a hike to Germany to meet Bayern Munich in their last group-stage game. In what was an expected result, the Bavarians recorded a 3-1 win at home. Mourinho’s boys did try their best to make a comeback, but at the Allianz Arena, it was just too big of a task.

Still, too much cannot be read into the defeat, as Spurs were still in a period of turmoil at that time, and Bayern was just out of their league then. As of now, Mourinho has slowly brought back Tottenham to form.

Meanwhile, Leipzig too were on the road, against Lyon. The match ended with a 2-2 scoreline, but it must have felt as if a loss for the visitors. They were ahead 0-2 at half time, only for them to concede two late goals in the latter half.

The frailties in Leipzig defense (especially in case of road fixtures) was on display against Lyon. Against the English opposition, they can expect even better attacks, and Leipzig will have to be vigilant at the back.

Spurs are on a three-match winning run, and a seven-game unbeaten streak. At home, they won the last four fixtures on the trot, and recorded wins in eight of the last ten as well.

On the other hand, Leipzig were winless in four of their former five overall games and are on a run of four winless matches on the road.

Likely, we can expect Tottenham to do their best on the pitch and avoid a loss at the least. However, do note that they had failed to keep clean sheets in 13 of their last 15 overall match-ups, and in 12 of their prior 15 appearances at home.

Injured or Suspended Players

Tottenham Hotspur: Moussa Sissoko, Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.
