Tottenham vs RB Leipzig prediction comes before Champions League 1/8 finals matchup. This game will be played on Wednesday, February 19 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Tottenham vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips
The odds are getting longer and longer on Tottenham to advance to the next stage of the Champions League. In fact, the Spurs are no longer the favorite against RB Leipzig in the game that’s taking place in England, at least according to some bookmakers. The reason for all this is that the English team is having serious problems with injuries, especially in the attacking department.
Their best player, Harry Kane, is out and has been for weeks. We probably won’t be seeing him back on the pitch for at least another month. His injury is the worst problem for the Spurs, but unfortunately for them, it’s not the only one. Another forward has also gotten injured recently. We’re talking about Son, who’s their second-best scorer this season.
Without these two guys in the team, the Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho will have to come up with some makeshift solutions for the attack. According to some reports, he is very likely to choose Troy Parrott in the starting eleven. The 18-year-old Irishman is currently the only “proper” attacker available to play.
We say “proper” because Tottenham has many other offensive-minded players in the squad. Their recent signing, for example, Steven Bergwijn, is a winger with a talent for scoring goals. The same goes for Lukas and Dele Alli, who is expected to play a prominent role in this game.
Now that Cristian Eriksen has left for Inter Milan, Dele Alli is expected to have an instrumental role in the midfield of this team. His primary role is going to be to create chances for his teammates, but knowing how talented this player is, it’s not going to be a surprise if he manages to score against RB Leipzig.
Same as Tottenham, the German team also has a long injury list. The difference is that RB Leipzig has problems with absentees at the back. This means that it might not be too hard for the Spurs to find the net this Wednesday. However, are they going to be able to keep their net intact? They probably won’t, considering that RB Leipzig’s strongest weapon is their attack.

Tottenham Form and Latest News
Tottenham’s biggest problem since Mourinho’s arrival has been their leaky defense. They do seem like they are sorting it out, but they still look vulnerable at the back. At the moment, what’s got to worry them more is their attack, which is decimated by injuries. Still, they have plenty of talent in the squad to be able to score at least one or two goals.
RB Leipzig Form and Latest News
One of their best defenders and a transfer target for Arsenal, Dayot Upamecano is suspended and will miss this match. In addition, three other defenders are injured, namely Orban, Konate, and Adams. Without these guys in the team, RB Leipzig do look vulnerable to Tottenham’s attacks.
