Leipzig vs Tottenham − Match preview
Leipzig are more than worthy of their 1-0 lead, having played Spurs off the park at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium three weeks ago. Timo Werner’s second half penalty was enough to see the Lilywhites off.
In truth, the only good news for Jose Mourinho’s side was that they only lost 1-0.
Tottenham were without star forwards Harry Kane and Heung-min Son for the first leg, with Mourinho saying that both players are unlikely to feature again this season. Incredibly, they’ve now lost another striker − new signing Steven Bergwijn − to injury too.
Will Academy graduate Troy Parrott, who got a brief run-out in the FA Cup last week (and missed a penalty in the subsequent shootout) finally get a chance to show what he’s capable of?
