A Harry Kane-less Tottenham continue their season in the Champions League with a tricky matchup. Leipzig don’t have a lot of experience in Europe, but they have become a real top side in the Bundesliga this season and even lead the league for a while.
Kane scored in four of his five group stage appearances, so the team really needs somebody to step up. Spurs had a disappointing start to their Champions League campaign with only four points from the first three games, but they recovered well, and with Jose Mourinho in charge, you should have a shot at winning any game.
Leipzig had a much easier time in the group stage, losing only once and winning three games. They had an unbeaten away record with two wins and one draw, so Tottenham have to be wary of their threat in what will be the third knockout game at their new stadium.
Beating Spurs at their place is a difficult task, though, as the London side have won 10 of their last 14 home games in the Champions League. They also boast a nice record against German teams, having won eight and lost just three of the previous 12 games at home.
