The Champions League knockout stages is new territory for RB Leipzig but they have proven that they are not fazed. They were impressive in the first leg and with Tottenham in poor form and missing their two star attackers, the hosts should be fancied to win again. Goals are likely too but with Spurs lacking in numbers, they will fall short once again versus this talented Leipzig outfit.
