Tottenham have been in really good form lately, but also quite unlucky. They just lost another key player to injury and will be somewhat short-handed when they will host RB Leipzig on Wednesday. The Germans are coming off a strong win in the Bundesliga but have struggled a bit lately. This is going to be a pretty exciting match between two very similar sides.

Spread: RB Leipzig 0.0
Total: 2.75 Goals
Tottenham are coming off a bitter-sweet away win on the road against Aston Villa. They did score an own goal at the start, but did eventually win thanks to two goals by Son. But Son suffered an injury in that match and will join Harry Kane in the sidelines. Anyhow, Tottenham are now undefeated in their last seven (5-0-2). They finished 2nd in their group with 10 points (3-2-1) and had a 2-1-0 record at home. Tottenham have won ten of their last 14 Champions League matches at home (10-4-0). They have been great against German sides in two-legged ties over the years (W5 L3).
On the other hand, RB Leipzig also did a solid job in the group stage, finishing 2nd. They were also great on the road, where they picked up seven of their 11 total points (2-0-1). But they had won just three of their previous 12 away European matches before this season. The Germans have now won just five of their twelve Champions League matches (5-4-3). And their overall record in two-legged European ties stands at W5 L1.
Tottenham are really running out of options up front with all those injuries. Under normal circumstances, with Son and Kane healthy, I wouldn’t even think about going with the Over. But I will take the home team to cover the spread here. Coach Mourinho is really experienced in the Champions League and knows exactly how to deal with situations like this.
