RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
RB Leipzig inflicted a 0-1 defeat on last year’s Champions League finalist. Thanks to the well-deserved victory, the Bundesliga club has one leg in the quarter-finals. The still tense personnel situation at the Spurs speaks for another successful evening from the perspective of the hosts.
With Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, they are by far the best scorers due to injuries. Of course, this diminishes the prospect of the much needed goal in the second leg. In addition, the defensive was recently fragile.
Three goals against Wolves in their home game last weekend and a series of four competitive games without a clean sheet show this. The trade fair townspeople completed their dress rehearsal against Wolfsburg last Saturday. The match in the Autostadt ended in a goalless draw.
We expect a similar low goal evening for the upcoming duel, which is why the RB Leipzig against Tottenham Tipp comprises fewer than three goals in the course of the game. The East Germans can wait in view of the result of the first leg and would already be in a draw in the next round.
On the other hand, the team of Jose Mourinho, who played his 150th Champions League game as a coach in the first leg, must try their luck on the offensive. Due to the failures mentioned, the necessary quality is lacking in this area.
In addition, the defensive alliance is currently very solid with the home side – a goal in the recent six games in the Bundesliga and premier class leaves no doubt about this assessment. Our side section of the betting base Champions League offers further analyzes of the current game round. The RB Leipzig against Tottenham prognosis goes hand in hand with four units.
For RB Leipzig, it was enough for the first time to jump into the playoffs after this year’s group phase. Against the background of the very good first leg, there are many indications that the path in the competition will now continue.
The team can build on the home advantage against the British. Only two of 15 home games this season were lost. The two bankruptcies were also some time ago. The successive bankruptcies against Schalke in the Bundesliga and Lyon in the Champions League occurred over five months ago.
Since then, the record has had seven wins and four draws on its own territory. On top, a goal was missed only in the match against the Gones. Although the team still has some injuries like Kevin Kampl or Willi Orban to complain about, they recently presented themselves as stable.
The only exceptions are the two bankruptcies against Eintracht, which was able to assert itself both in the cup and in the Bundesliga a few weeks ago. In league operations there has been no loss for six rounds and with five points behind the leaders Bayern Munich, the club from the Bachstadt is still in the title race.
Defense and storm have top marks in the upper house of German football. On the offensive, the scouting department did a good job, for example, with Patrik Schick’s loan. After a long injury break, the Czech international has been playing successfully with the Leipzig team since last November.
Seven goals in 15 league games are impressive. In addition, Timo Werner recently found his goalie. After a major streak of five games without a hit, he landed the decisive goal in the first leg and then netted for Schalke’s impressive 5-0 victory.
In view of the current constitution, the RB Leipzig against Tottenham odds for a home win are also associated with value in our eyes.
Jose Mourinho has been experiencing his first major crisis since joining Tottenham last November. After the bankruptcy against RB, Schlappen followed against Chelsea and the Wolves in the Premier League, followed by an embarrassing exit in the FA Cup against the bottom of the league in the top British league from Norwich.
The dress rehearsal last weekend also only meant a 1: 1 at Burnley. The Spurs hit only with a penalty, which brought the offensive problem to light once again.
Of course, the drop in performance can largely be explained by the aforementioned failures by Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son. Without the goal-scoring duo, the game on the side of Tottenham is clearly weakened. So far, Tottenham has also benefited greatly from the two players in the Champions League.
Harry Kane scored six goals in five appearances this season and the South Korean was responsible for five goals in six games on the Spurs side! The common eleven goals are offset by just seven more CL goals from the rest of the squad.
In addition, other offensive players such as Brazilian Lucas or Giovani Lo Celso are currently in the persistent form crisis. The statistics also have little courage: Of the last ten times in which Tottenham have been defeated in a first leg, eight have followed in the respective European competition.
