Most Tottenham Hotspur fans would have been pleased to have been drawn against RB Leipzig in the round of 16 stage of the Champions League particularly considering they could have been pitted against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus or Barcelona.

While Leipzig currently sit at the top of the Bundesliga, Tottenham will be confident that they can overcome the German side if they are at their best.

However, The Sun have now revealed that the away tie poses a significant headache for Spurs fans due to the fact that there are no direct flight from London to Leipzig.

With the all crucial second leg to be played at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on March 10, Spurs fans will not have a straight forward journey to the east German city.

Fans either have to take a connecting flight via Dusseldorf or fly to either Berlin or Dresden before taking a train to Leipzig.

Skyscanner is said to recommend catching the 12.15pm flight from Heathrow on the day of the game.

While connecting through Berlin or Dresden will reportedly take a little over three hours, driving directly from London to Leipzig will be an approximate ten hour journey.

Spurs Web Opinion

While a lack of direct flights to Leipzig is obviously a major inconvenience for the travelling fans, Spurs fans would still take this tie over one against the likes of Barca or Bayern. So overall it is still a pretty favourable draw as it gives us a great chance of reaching the quarterfinals.
