RB Leipzig faces Tottenham Hotspur

RB Leipzig faces Tottenham Hotspur at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in a second leg from the Champions League 1/8-finals. The German team is in a better position after the result in the first game, but Spurs are not a team to be written off. We expect some dramatic moments on Tuesday. Let’s take a look.

Being hurt by too many injury problems, Tottenham Hotspur didn’t play their best Champions League game against RB Leipzig two weeks ago. The German side won the game with 1-0 after a penalty kick, scored by their star striker Timo Werner. After the game Spurs’ manager Jose Mourinho likened his team to “a gun with no bullets”.

Tottenham are currently without their two best strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, which is a huge problem for the Portuguese manager. In the first leg against Leipzig he put Dele Alli and Lucas Moura upfront, but both of them are not really pure strikers. Mourinho was right – he really didn’t have much of a choice in attack.

RB Leipzig on the other hand did what they had to do – they defended well and scored a crucial away goal which guaranteed them the win. But on Tuesday they must be cautious – Tottenham are hurt, but they are still in the competition. Jose Mourinho is a tactician with a vast experience, so we won’t be surprised if he creates some unique plan to turn the tie in his team’s favour.

Except Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min who we already mentioned, Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth remain sidelined for Tottenham. In the same time RB Leipzig’s manager Julian Nagelsmann can’t use Kevin Kampl, Tyler Adams, Ibrahima Konate and Willi Orban who are all injured at the moment.

Can Tottenham Hotspur survive in the Champions League against RB Leipzig? That’s the pretty good question we must ask now. Spurs lost the first game at home, but they have 90 minutes to turn things in their favour.

Leipzig – Eintracht Frankfurt

RB Leipzig hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in a game from the second round of the Bundesliga. This clash at the Red Bull Arena promises a lot of fun moments, because these two teams are really good. Let’s take a look at it.

RB Leipzig started the new season in the best way possible – with a win. The Bulls travelled to the capital to face the newcomers Union Berlin and celebrated a crushing 4-0 win. Marcel Halstenberg, Marcel Sabitzer and Timo Werner scored until the halftime break, while during the second half Christopher Nkunku added one more goal for the visitors.

This was a Bundesliga debut with RB Leipzig for the club’s new manager Julian Nagelsmann. The young tactician left Hoffenheim to move to Leipzig and start a new chapter in his managerial career. He’s regarded one of the most promising young managers in the world, so it’s going to be very interesting to follow his career at his new club.

Meanwhile Eintracht Frankfurt also started the new season with a win. The Eagles hosted Hoffenheim at home and celebrated a difficult 1-0 win. The only goal in the game was scored in the first minute when the centre back Martin Hinteregger scored after an assist from Filip Kostic. Last season Eintracht did well and reached the semi-finals of Europa League, but the team didn’t find a place in the Champions League. One of the primary goals this season is going to be a Top 4 finish, despite of the departures of influental players like Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller.

You can be sure that RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt will offer the fans a spectacular game on Sunday. Both of these two teams have ambition to qualify for the Champions League, so for them every point is important. Let’s see what’s going to happen.
