Ryan’s Betting Tips – RB Leipzig FC vs Tottenham Hotspur FC

“Mourinho will have his work cut out if he wants to reach the last eight of the Champions League on Tuesday when Spurs travel to Leipzig. The first leg was a typical Mourinho employment of a low-block, but a baffling one given the circumstances of a need to bolt out of the gates in a home first leg of a European game. Leipzig’s record of scoring in every home game this season apart from one (vs Lyon in the UCL group stages), along with the desperate need for an away goal on Tottenham’s part will ensure a frantic game.”

  1. Leipzig – 4/7*
  2. Over 2.5 Goals – 8/11*
  3. BTTS + Leipzig – 21/10*
  4. Marcel Sabitzer Anytime Scorer – 13/8*
  5. Multibet Exact Score (1-0, 2-0 or 2-1) – 15/8*

Match Preview – RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur FC

German side Leipzig host an injury-laden Tottenham Hotspur at the Red Bull Arena in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 2019/20.

RB Leipzig

Die Roten Bullen are currently in the race for their first Bundesliga title, sitting third, but were first as recently as mid-February. The controversial manner in Leipzig’s unprecedented rise has seen fans in Germany label them as a ‘plastic club’, backed by Red Bull as a ‘marketing campaign’, compared to the ’50+1′ rule in Germany of club members controlling the majority stake in a club. They also possess one of the most coveted and youngest managers in world football, 32-year-old Julian Nagelsmann. Having reached their first knockout Champions League tie this season, they are looking to make more history with a win to ensure progression to the quarter-finals.

Team News

The news every Leipzig fan wanted to hear was the confirmation of Timo Werner’s availability for the crucial tie. They brought the striker on as a substitute and played the final half hour against Wolfsburg this weekend gone. Ibrahima Konate will just miss out, with an expected return from a torn muscle scheduled for next week, after being on the sidelines since October.

Leipzig are unbeaten in their last 11 home games, winning 14 of their 16 home games in all comps in the 2019/20 season so far. (Soccerway)

Tottenham Hotspur FC

Transition seems to be the key word for the North London club at the present moment, who moved into their industry standard new home in April last year. Serial winner Jose Mourinho took the reins in late November after the departure of the underperforming fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino. The highs of a first ever Champions League final last season to competing for a top four finish this campaign, Champions League football next year is an achievement given the Portuguese taking over while sitting 14th and the extensive injury list. Will Spurs hobble to a top four finish? Possibly. Will they beat Leipzig in their own backyard to secure their second successive UCL quarter final? Unlikely.

Team News

It gets worse for Spurs, with attackers Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane out for most of the season. New signing Steven Bergwijn can join the extensive list on the treatment table after an suffering an ankle sprain against Burnley. They also expect Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies to miss out.

Key Players

RB Leipzig- Timo Werner – 7/10* Anytime Goalscorer

The man who gave RasenBall the lead in the tie will now more than likely play on Tuesday, which will not make for good reading for Spurs fans. 38 returns (27 goals, 11 assists) in 35 matches has put him as one of the top strikers in world football, and if you believe what you read in the papers, could be on his way to Anfield soon.

Tottenham Hotspur- Lucas Moura – 10/3* Anytime Goalscorer

One of the remaining fit attackers in the Spurs squad will have to be on top form and produce a performance akin to his heroic hat-trick against Ajax in last year’s semi-finals to aid in any progression.
