RB Leipzig vs Tottenham 03/09/2020
RB Leipzig returns home for the second leg of their Round of 16 matchup against Tottenham. They have a 1-0 lead on aggregate, as well as an away goal as insurance. This was earned two weeks ago in England. In their 1-0 win in the first leg, Timo Werner scored the lone goal of the game in the 58th minute via the penalty spot. The game was dominated by Leipzig as they produced 16 shots with five on target. Despite their advantage, Leipzig has played poorly in their last two games as they drew twice and just scored a total of one goal. Their offense has been on funk and their defense has to step up with center backs Ibrahima Konate and Willy Orban out with injuries. Also, Ethan Ampadu and Kevin Kampl are doubtful for the game.
Players to Watch: Timo Werner (4 goals, 1 assist), Emil Forsberg (3 G, 1 A), Marcel Sabitzer (2 G, 2 A), Yussuf Poulsen (1 A), Konrad Leimer (1 G), Peter Gulacsi (2 clean sheets).
Tottenham is on funk and they have not won a game since February 15. They lost to RB Leipzig in the first leg then they followed it up with losses to Chelsea and Wolverhampton in the English Premier League. And to make matters worse, they were eliminated by Norwich City in the FA Cup before drawing with Burnley over the weekend. Given that they have been hit by the injury bug, Tottenham are too talented to not get the results they want. They also have Jose Mourinho as their manager but it seems like his tactics are not elite anymore. Tottenham will still be without Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Heung-min Son for the second leg while Steven Bergwijn and Ryan Sessegnon are doubtful.
Players to Watch: Dele Alli (1 G, 1 A), Erik Lamela (1 G, 2 A), Lucas Moura (1 G, 1 A), Serge Aurier (1 G, 2 A), Tanguy Ndombele (2 A), Hugo Lloris (10 goals allowed).
