Without a 3-0 win over Bremen in the last match, Leipzig also faces the risk of losing second place, when Dortmund is accelerating in the race for the Silver Disc. Thanks to that victory, teachers and students Julian Nagelsmann had a little more confidence in the trip to England as Tottenham’s guest.
Traveling far in the Champions League is always a difficult challenge for Leipzig. Since the first battle in Europe’s No. 1 playground in 2017, Leipzig has only won 3 away matches in the Champions League.

Tottenham under Jose Mourinho’s reign is no longer as dedicated to attacking as it was under his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino, but much more pragmatic. Spurs are ready to play the role of the weak, shrinking in defense to wait for the opponent to make a mistake when rising. Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig is a team that likes to attack like that, and that’s what Jose Mourinho’s teachers and students want to see in this match.
