Tottenham had the third win in a row in all competitions over the weekend and it was also the second time in a row, “The Rooster” had to chase the opponent and end the match with a score 3-2. Mourinho is gradually putting everything into the spiral at Tottenham but the bad variable continues to happen right before the reception of RB Leipzig in the round 1/8 of Champions League. And the soccer prediction of Tottenham and RB Leipzig match was Tottenham will win with a big gap.
Soccer prediction before the match
Accordingly, Son Heung Min – a player with high performance recently has to take a long-term leave the soccer field due to arm surgery. This means that Jose Mourinho will not have a proper striker for at least another month.
Since taking power at Tottenham, the Portuguese coach has helped this team to have a completely different face. The “rooster” is now more evolved than Pochettino when he said “show his face” and then take the last kill. Victory against Man City is a good example.
However, Mourinho has not been able to completely change the system that Pochettino has built, but the “Special One” has inherited. Tottenham still had eye-catching attacks and it was gone along with silly goals. In the last two appearances, they scored 6 goals but conceded 4 goals. Losing 2 top goalscorers, Mourinho doesn’t know how to keep the above achievements.
The RB Leipzig plays in the visit position had a good run for the trip to England. The team from the east of Germany won 3-0 in a match with Werder Bremen over the weekend. It was the first victory for Julian Nagelsmann’s team after four matches, only draw and lose.
The teacher born in 1987 has always been likened to the “new Mourinho” and this match, Nagelsmann will face the “original” version. In terms of force, some of the players of RB Leipzig can’t attend the soccer field due to various reasons. Therefore, the soccer prediction of a trip to England is expected to be turbulent. RB Leipzig’s away league performance is quite good with 3 wins in 4 times away from home.
The score of soccer prediction: Tottenham 2-1 RB Leipzig
Tottenham: Lloris, Davies, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Aurier, Lo Celso, Winks, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Alli and Moura
RB Leipzig: Gulacsi, Mukiele, Klostermann, Halstenberg, Sabitzer, Haidara, Laimer, Angelino, Nkuku, Werner and Poulsen
Before entering the first round of 1/8 Champions League, Jose Mourinho hinted that “RB Leipzig is not matched for Tottenham”.
Mourinho confidently headed for the victory with a gap, in order to gain an advantage in the race to win the Champions League quarter-finals.
How is the result? Didn’t like the soccer prediction, Tottenham lost to RB Leipzig 0-1 at home, and the door went on becoming very narrow.
In the match that Harry Kane and Son Heung Min simultaneously out of the soccer field because of injury, Tottenham showed a weak face.
In front of the home crowd, Mourinho’s players could not overwhelm the game. The Portuguese himself also lacks solutions to create mutations in play.
The goalkeeper of Hugo Lloris – who was beaten by Timo Werner’s 11-meter shot – was selected by the UEFA player of the match to show how bad Tottenham was.
Of course, there was a bit of unlucky for Tottenham, when Lo Celso shot the goalkeeper Gulacsi and the column denied the goal.
In the first half of the match
Despite playing at home soccer field, unlike the soccer prediction, Tottenham was completely inferior to RB Leipzig. In the first half, coach Jose Mourinho’s team was constantly cornered, controlling the ball only 35% and made 4 finishes.
In contrast, RB Leipzig pushed up the squad and have 2 dangerous situations. The first was the finishing touch to put the ball close to Patrik Schick’s goal just before the round of 16m50 and then the shot hit the post in the narrow-angle of Angelino.
Until the 8th minute, Tottenham had a clear opportunity. Originating from Lo Celso’s through ball on the left-wing, Steven Bergwijn escaped extremely quickly before turning the ball cleverly and then ending the far corner. However, goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi was able to make a clearance. Shortly thereafter, Dele Alli is rush to try to hit the ball but failed.
In the second half
In the second half, Leipzig switched to playing with a low squad and actively reduced the match speed. Thanks to that, Tottenham took the initiative and played more actively.
Incidentally occurred in the 56th minute, when defender Ben Davies fouled Konrad Laimer in the penalty area, Tottenham was penalized. On the 11m mark, Timo Werner succeeded to open the score for Leipzig.
The rest of the time, Tottenham tried hard but still could not find a goal to equalize. In the end, unlike the soccer prediction of people, Tottenham lost 0-1 to Leipzig and this was no small disadvantage for teachers and coach Jose Mourinho before the return leg in Germany on March 11.
