London club Tottenham is welcoming the German side, Leipzig today the 19th of February. Tottenham is missing its two top scorers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Kane was injured towards the end of 2019 and is not expected back into the team until the end of the season. Son, on the other hand, was injured over the weekend playing with Aston Villa.
In the Aston Villa game, Son racked up more goals as he put his side ahead with two spectacular ones. one of which was scored at the last minute to secure a win. The game had been tied to a draw of 2-2 until the last minute. This brought the London club just three points away from a top-four position.
This is crucial as they will be visiting the fourth club Chelsea come the weekend. Son will be out for weeks. Spurs now have to depend on Moura and Dele Alli to bring in goals. The two are more than capable but have shown very little of their skills to get the ball at the back of the net since Mourinho arrived.
Leipzig is having a great spell and this will work in the advantage of Spurs. The team is currently in the 2nd position in the Bundesliga.
The Underdogs Are Winning
The game will be a cracker as both teams seek to end the championship high or dare I say win it. Leipzig will particularly be seeking inspiration from two of the games played on Tuesday night. On Tuesday the underdogs recorded a big victory. Atletico Madrid which was going up against Liverpool, the current Champions of Europe got the best of Klops team. A single goal was enough to see the Spanish side win over the England side.
And in Germany, PSG was unable to beat Dortmund which put two past their goalkeeper. PSG returned one goal but there wasn’t enough time to seek a draw.
The Champions League is off to a great start and we wait to see what is in store for tonight with Leipzig and Tottenham.
