Tottenham Hotspur are back in action in the Champions League later this month as they welcome RB Leipzig to the new stadium in North London.

Spurs are at home for the first leg of the knockout affair, after the Lilywhites came second in their group and Leipzig finished as table-toppers.

Of course, Spurs reached the final last year in Madrid and now have some pedigree in the competition, but Leipzig have been on fire in the Bundesliga this season.

While RB are challenging for a title, Spurs are down in sixth in the Premier League and a long way off Liverpool’s leading form.

However, Leipzig may have just been dealt a blow for the first leg of their match against Spurs, as Tyler Adams will not be playing against the Lilywhites.

Journalist Derek Rae claims that Leipzig manager, Julian Nagelsmann, told him that Tyler Adams would not take part due to a calf injury.

Goal journalist Ronan Murphy labelled this as bad news for Leipzig and good news for Tottenham.
