A finalist last year, Tottenham Hotspur will see no further than the Champions League knockout stages this season. And his dream breaker is called RB Leipzig, who won the first leg, majestically finished the job tonight, on his own lawn, winning 3 goals to 0. A good qualification for the Germans.
Historic qualification for the players of Rb Leipzig in the quarter-final of the Champions League, against a Tottenham Hotspur team, totally picking it up, without its stars, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
After taking the advantage in the first leg (1-0), thanks to Timo Werner, the German club continued its good streak with its desire to surprise.
And the surprise was not made wait, from the first ten minutes thanks to a goal signed Marcel Sabitzer, before a completely nonexistent defense on behalf of the English club.
Speed, technique and team play, Leipzig continues to dominate by wandering its ineffective opponents, both offensively and defensively.
A weakness that benefits the men of Julian Nagelsmann, and again to Marcel Sabitzer who offers a double in the 20th minute.
The noose tightens for the Spurs who seem helpless, does not benefit the German players who continue to create danger. Although Luca Moura struggles to pierce the defense of Leipzig, the Brazilian international does not reach the nets.
Never two without three for Rb Leipzig who hit the nail in the 87th minute with a third goal signed Emil Forsberg. As for the rest of the game, Tottenham gives up completely and makes no effort. The Premier League club has probably signed one of their most catastrophic performances of their season.
The German band from Leipzig will discover the quarter-finals for the first time in its history. For Tottenham it’s another story, a finalist last year, the English giant falls from above.
