RB Leipzig vs Tottenham prediction comes before the second leg of the Champions League 1/8-finals round matchup. This game will be played on Tuesday, March 10, at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany. In this match preview, you will find the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two sides.
RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Betting Tips
The first leg finished in RB Leipzig’s favor. The match was played two weeks ago at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London and the final score was 1:0 for the away team. This means that the English side will have to go for a win in Germany in order to get qualified for the quarterfinal. The last year’s Champions League runner-up has a very difficult job ahead, not only for the fact that RB Leipzig is a good team, but also because the Spurs haven’t been playing very well lately.
Tottenham has lost four out of the previous five matches in all competitions. The one they didn’t lose, the Spurs drew. It was last Saturday, when they played 1-1 with Burnley. Their poor performances have made them drop in the table by several points. At the moment, teams like Sheffield United and Wolves have more points than Tottenham.
What this means is that they have plenty of worries on their mind. One of their biggest worries is whether they will be able to get to the quarterfinal of the Champions League. They surely want to get there, but knowing how serious their injury problems are, they don’t look like a team capable of beating RB Leipzig in Germany.
In this game, the Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is not going to be able to count on his two highest-scoring players Harry Kane and Son, as well as Sissoko and Davies. Due to the injuries of Kane and Son, Mourinho insisted on signing Bergwijn in January. Unfortunately for the Portuguese manager, the new signing also got injured. Although Bergwijn is on route to recovery, he still isn’t fully fit.
Still, even if all of those guys were available, Tottenham would probably be the underdog anyway. The Spurs are playing against RB Leipzig, one of the best German teams that’s been playing at a very high level in the recent couple of weeks. In addition, the game will be played with spectators as confirmed recently, which will certainly give an advantage to RB Leipzig, especially because there are reports about some Tottenham fans deciding not to attend the game due to coronavirus fears.
RB Leipzig doesn’t need a victory in this game to get qualified for the quarterfinal. The Red Bulls just need not to lose. In fact, even a 1-0 win for the Spurs would not mean the end of the journey. Instead, the match would go to the extra time. This is why the best bet you can make is probably Asian Handicap +1.5 on the home team.

RB Leipzig Form and Latest News
RB Leipzig has been in a pretty good run lately. This team is without a defeat since losing to Eintracht in the German Cup in early February. The same team beat them in January in the Bundesliga. Those two defeats are the only defeats this team has suffered in 2020.
Tottenham Form and Latest News
Tottenham is in a bad situation at the moment. There are all sorts of problems with this squad and the morale of the players is very low. It seems as if they’ve already given up on their Champions League dream and that they’d rather focus on the Premier League, which is where they play Manchester United on Sunday.
That’s the game in which Mourinho will have personal reasons to hope for a big win of his team, as he used to be the boss of the Red Devils before getting fired and replaced by their current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That said, Mourinho’s mind is probably already set on that game rather than the clash with RB Leipzig.
