Reason for Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig UEFA Champions League Picks

Tottenham Hotspur +142

Tottenham's victory at Aston Villa was another encounter between the old and the new. The Sky cameras documented the meeting between Mourinho and John Terry, one of the many loyal Portuguese players in his career. As things stand, Son Heung-Min could play the same role in the Spurs.

The attacker stands up instead of Harry Kane. His last winner at Villa was his sixth goal in five games. This should continue here, as Son has scored nine goals in his last 10 starts in the Champions League. In the qualifying stages with the Spurs, his record is five goals in seven starts. We support you to dial at any time here to add to that.

The hosts scored the first game in four consecutive home games (W4 - all competitions), but also only kept one blank sheet in their last seven home games. An entertaining match is coming, especially from the three home games of Tottenham UCL this quarter that saw more than 2.5 goals in the first half and more than 4.5 in the final whistle.

Team news: Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko are excluded from the home team, while Juan Foyth and Erik Lamela will be evaluated after losing the 3-2 victory at Aston Villa, although the latter was training with the first team on Tuesday.

Ben Davies came back to action in the victory at Villa Park and should keep his place on the left side, while José Mourinho could be tempted to start Japhet Tanganga on the right side and push Serge Aurier forward to help keep the rapid left flank of RB Leipzig, in particular Timo Werner, from a distance.

Key Player: Dele Alli has scored a first-half opener in three of the last four Tottenham games that he’s found the net.

RB Leipzig +194

Leipzig was also on the road, against Lyon. The match ended with a score of 2-2, but it must have felt like a loss for the visitors. They had a 0-2 lead at halftime, only to have two final goals conceded in the second half.

The weaknesses of Leipzig's defense (particularly in the case of road repairs) were exposed against Lyon. Against the English opposition, they can expect even better attacks, and Leipzig will have to be vigilant in the rear.

Although this was Leipzig's first European match against an English team, they won five of their six previous European qualifying matches. In particular, the last eight competitive victories for Leipzig have allowed them to score more than 2.5 goals per team, but six have also seen both teams score.

Team news: Julian Nagelsmann has a big selection problem in defense with Willi Orban and Ibrahima Konate and Dayot Upamecano injured suspended.

If the head of RB Leipzig continues with a three-man defense, Nordi Mukiele could fall in the bottom line with Marcel Halstenberg and Lukas Klostermann.

Tyler Adams and Kevin Kampl also being excluded, Marcel Sabitzer could move to the right and Amadou Haidara would start alongside Konrad Laimer in the midfield.

Key Player: Timo Werner has scored in five of Leipzig’s last eight away games - they are unbeaten in the last 34 games he’s found the net (W29, D5 – 90 minutes only).

First Team To Score: RB Leipzig +105
