TOT Vs LEP Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottenham’s lacklustre defence comes across a ruthless RB Leipzig unit.
Whilst 2020 hasn’t treated RB Leipzig in the same manner as 2019 did, the German side still find themselves emerging as a staunch unit in the footballing arena. With Bayern Munich not in action in the Bundesliga at the weekend, RB Leipzig ended up moving into first place in the league with a 3-0 thumping of Werder Bremen.
It was a crucial win for the club as they strived to wrench out of their impasse which had seen them hand over top spot to Bayern Munich. Winless in their previous three clashes, the win came across a massive shot in the arm to the unit ahead of what looks set to be an edge of the seat thriller in the showpiece competition this Thursday.
While the visit to London will by no mean by a straightforward one for the German side, they’ll be quietly buoyed by not only the fact that they are unbeaten in their previous matches away from home in the CL but also the spate of injuries to have struck Tottenham. With Kane already out, the club was dealt a massive blow before the tie with Son being ruled out as well owing to a recently sustained fracture.
TOT Vs LEP Probable Winner
Although Tottenham did manage to pull off a 3-2 win at the weekend in the Premier League, it was a scrappy win, one where their defensive weaknesses were yet again brought to the fore. It’s a predicament RB Leipzig will build on as they expose Tottenham’s sordid backline but we see Tottenham having enough to pull off a draw from this one.
Probable Playing 11
- Harry Kane and Erik Lamela will both be ruled out for the home side with the players nursing injuries ahead of the encounter.
- Willi Orban, Ibrahima Konate and Tyler Adams will all be skipping this encounter for RB Leipzig with the players yet to recover from their injuries.

TOT Vs LEP Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We’ll be beginning our set of picks with the selection of Peter Gulacsi from RB Leipzig from this one. He’s been the fulcrum of his side letting in a mere 25 goals in the Bundesliga, a worldclass shot stopper who as shown immense fortitude in the face of the carnage of shots he’s encountered.
We’ll be beginning this component of our Dream 11 outfit with the selection of S Aurier from Tottenham. He’s someone who has a penchant for marauding down the park and providing unstinted support to the side’s attacking soirees. Toby Alderweireld joins him given the way he’s bolstered the home side’s defence to emerge as the mainstay of his backline.
Elsewhere, Nordi Mukiele is brought in by us from RB Leipzig with the wingback cantering his way in both the dockets of the side’s play to make for a seamless blend of both attack and defence., traits which have seen him accrue the three goals and one assist.
Angelino will be the last addition to our Dream11 Team. Manchester City Youngster who is currently on loan to Leipzig is a full back but plays on left wing for german side so it would be great pick for us.
With the 7 goals and 5 assists this season, we’ll be beginning our set of picks from RB Leipzig with the pick of the electric Marcel Sabitzer for this fixture. With 4 goals and 7 assists, he’s paired alongside Christopher Nkunku for the clash with the two making for a diminutive partnership which will instil fear in Tottenham’s ranks.
Delle Alli and Steven Bergwijn have in their kitty repertoire to send any defence packing with defence, two players who’ll be handed over an elevated role owing to the injuries their side are reeling under at the moment.
RB Leipzig’s slump in form has been largely down to Timo Werner losing his titillating touch but there’s no doubting what he’s capable of. With a staggering 20 goals and 6 assists, he’s his side’s leading scorer, a player who was a regulation selection for us.
Elsewhere, four goal and two assist man, Lucas Moura is being brought in our setup from the home side with this being a tournamnet he’s flourished in.
Captain And Vice-Captain
This is the ideal defence for Werner to be back amongst the goal to see us make him our side’s captain while D Alli is our vice-captain.
