Jose Mourinho has picked his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field against RB Leipzig this evening.
Spurs made the trip to Germany yesterday without a number of key players including Heung-min Son, Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Steven Bergwijn and Ben Davies.
The North London side go into the second leg of the round of 16 tie having to overturn the 1-0 defeat they suffered last month.
After making it to the final last season’s competition against all of the odds, Spurs must once again face an uphill battle to keep their European hopes alive.
Spurs have only lost one of their five away Champions League games in Germany (W2 D2), although that defeat came earlier this season away at Bayern Munich in the group stage (1-3).
Spurs have been eliminated from eight of their last 10 major UEFA European knockout ties after losing the first leg, although they overturned a deficit the last time this happened against Ajax in last season’s Champions League semi-final (0-1 first leg, 3-2 second leg).
? Lloris (C), Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Tanganga, Sessegnon, Winks, Lo Celso, Lamela, Lucas, Dele
