Tottenham faced Leipzig for the first time in any competition for the first leg of this series. Tottenham left Hotspur Stadium in shell-shock following a penalty goal that moved them a step closer to elimination heading into this game.

Things aren’t better at home for Tottenham either; the Hotspurs are trailing a five-game winless run, which includes four losses across three different competitions. Jose Mourinho’s squad has lost two of their last three in the English Premier League and is now in 8th place of the tables.

It doesn’t help Tottenham that Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are still sidelined. Midfielder Moussa Sissoko is also recovering from knee surgery and won’t be back any time soon.

The absence of Kane and Heung-min has been a disaster for Tottenham; together, the pair have scored 33 of the Spurs’ 72 goals in competitions in 2019-20. As well, traveling to Germany is a bad omen for Tottenham as they’ve already lost to Bayern 3-1 in the group stage.

Mourinho’s expected lineup is: Lloris (c), Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Lamela, Winks, Lo Celso, Sessegnon; Alli, Lucas

Werner’s penalty goal in the first leg gives Leipzig hopes they’ll pass through to the next stage of this competition. Werner is the first player in history to have scored his first seven Champions League goals away from home.

It remains to be seen if Werner can score at Red Bull Arena, where he’s yet to find the back of the net in this competition.

Julian Nagelsmann's team ended three points ahead at the top of Group G to progress to this stage, and they have now won six of their 13 Champions League games. However, the German team has won just one of their last four home European games, which is something to consider heading into this game.

Ibrahima Konate and Kevin Kampl are still on the injury list, but Willi Orban made the bench against Wolfsburg on Saturday, having recovered from knee surgery. Center-back Dayot Upamecano was suspended for the first game but should start on Tuesday.

Here’s how Nagelsmann's probable lineup looks like: Gulacsi - Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg - Mukiele, Sabitzer (c), Laimer, Angelino - Nkunku, Schick, Werner.

Prediction: Tottenham could turn things around in Germany. But, Mourinho is working with a hobbled squad that is just a short step away from getting their teeth kicked in. It’s a tough pill to swallow for the reigning champs, but I think they’ll be left out of the competition.

Pick: Leipzig -174
