RB Leipzig won the first leg at Spurs on Feb. 19, 1-0, on a Timo Werner penalty goal in the second half. That scoreline flattered Spurs, who were unable to retain possession against Leipzig’s high press. If not for Tottenham center back Davinson Sanchez and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ excellent performances, Leipzig could have scored two or three at Tottenham three weeks ago.

Without the attacking options of Heung-min Son and Harry Kane, Spurs have struggled to generate much of any offense, especially without an experienced striker in the squad. Spurs have created just 3.3 expected goals in their last four Premier League and Champions League matches since Son’s injury. This culminated in Saturday’s lackluster offensive performance at Burnley, where Spurs created 0.4 xG and needed a penalty to score their lone goal in a 1-1 draw.
