Predicted Tottenham XI to face RB Leipzig in the Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur face a visit to Germany this week in the Champions League as they look to pull off a comeback against RB Leipzig.

Spurs are 1-0 down in the tie, with Leipzig taking an away goal into the second leg, making them heavy favourites for progression.

To make matters worse, Spurs are without the injured Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Steven Bergwijn, and Moussa Sissoko.

We are predicting that Hugo Lloris will retain his place between the sticks, while Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld will line up in the centre of defence.

Ryan Sessegnon comes in at left-back, while Aurier occupies the right-back role. Oliver Skipp and Harry Winks partner each other in the centre of the park.

Giovani Lo Celso is then pushed further forward to make up for the lack of attacking options, with Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, and Lucas Moura making up the rest of the front four.

Spurs will be aware that a 1-0 win would force extra time and a 2-0 win would win them the match. We think that Mourinho will play it slow and remain compact.
