The Premier League might be in the middle of a winter break at the moment, but Jose Mourinho certainly isn’t on holiday.
The Tottenham head coach was pictured at the Allianz Arena on Sunday evening running the rule over Tottenham’s Champions League round of 16 opponents RB Leipzig, as they went up against Bayern Munich.
The match finished goalless, meaning that Bayern maintained their one-point lead over Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga.
While the home side dominated proceedings, Julian Nagelsmann’s side sat back and played on the counter-attack. They had a few chances to take all three points in the second half, but failed to convert them.
Some Spurs fans were impressed to see Mourinho busy at work during the winter break but didn’t really think the disguise that the 57-year-old wore did the trick.
Others hoped that the Portuguese coach would have learned enough about Leipzig from the game to mastermind a win over the Germans when they travel to Tottenham.

I’m sure Jose will have clocked the fact that despite not having much of the ball and being on the back foot for the majority of the game RB Leipzig still managed to have the best three chances of the match. Should’ve snatched it really.

Jose in Munich watching Leipzig. A very technical game. Bayern finding no space watch so ever. They pack the midfield and press way up the pitch. Our defending must be spot on otherwise we’ll get taken apart.

Spurs Web Opinion
Mourinho would have certainly got a good idea of how Leipzig are likely to approach the first leg from the way they set up to play at the Allianz Arena on Sunday. They have shown so far this season that they can be deadly on the counter-attack and so we have to be switched on defensively throughout the ninety minutes if we hope to get the better of Leipzig.
