Match Betting (1x2)

RB Leipzig are not exactly a household name when it comes to the European Cup, although the Red Bull-powered team sit top of the Bundesliga at the time of writing, with Julian Nagelsmann proving to be a talented young manager at the Red Bull Arena.

Die Roten Bullen also claimed top spot in their Champions League group, enjoying eleven points from six games played and they will head to White Hart Lane with the firm intention of winning this first leg clash.

Unibet offer a tempting 13/5 about Leipzig stunning Tottenham in their own back yard and it has to be admitted that Spurs were thrashed 7-2 by Bayern Munich during the group stage.

Since then, Mauricio Pochettino has left the club and Jose Mourinho has now been tasked with trying to guide the team through the European Cup knockout stages, with the Portuguese an old hand when it comes to this competition.

Mourinho has previously won the Champions League with Porto and Internazionale although the latter success was nearly ten years ago and he fell short with Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Even so, Tottenham are 21/20 to win this first leg encounter and head to Germany with some kind of advantage.

The draw would probably favour the visitors more, especially if they were able to get an away goal or two, with William Hill offering 11/4 that the game ends all square and we think that could be a value bet.

To Qualify

While Leipzig are not commonly acknowledged as one of Europe’s best teams, they have perpetually been investing in the squad and this might be borne out by a successful Champions League campaign now that they have made it to the last sixteen.

They will consider their tie to be fairly favourable compared to some of the other teams that could have been drawn, with Paddy Power offering a tempting even money about the German side going through to the last eight.

Tottenham are marginal favourites to go through at 10/11 although it’s hardly been a garden of roses for Mourinho since he took over at the London club and we feel as though the value is with the Bundesliga outfit.

Asian Handicap

We’re big fans of Leipzig and feel that there’s a good way to support them by backing them on the Asian Handicap where they don’t necessarily need to win the game in order for the bet to prosper.

BetVictor have 7/8 about the visitors with half a goal advantage and that means a draw or better would enable the bet to profit, while you can alternatively get 7/4 about them on the Asian Handicap mark off a scratch mark.

Both Teams to Score

Jose Mourinho will emphasise to his team that a goalless draw isn’t a disaster and in fact a good result considering that it will avoid Leipzig scoring that precious away goal.

With this in mind, the value bet could be backing the “No” option on the Both Teams to Score market at 13/8 with BetVictor, with this bet profiting unless both sides find the net.
