RB Leipzig are making club history this season as they are in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time. Having come away from the first leg with a 1-0 win and an away goal, they will be feeling confident of reaching the quarter final of the competition.

1. RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Preview
In most cases, when a team wins the away leg of a Champions League tie, they will come into the second leg as the favourites to win the game. That applies in this case as the RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur betting odds have the hosts at 4/6 with Bet365 to win the match.
RB Leipzig come into this game undefeated in their last 5 Champions League games. In addition to the victory in the first leg, RB Leipzig have defeated Zenit St Petersburg home and away. They also picked up a draw at home against Benfica and away against Lyon with all 4 results coming in the group stage.
However, RB Leipzig have not had things all their own way at home in the Champions League this season. They lost their first group game at home against Lyon and were also held to a draw at home against Benfica. Nonetheless, recent home form has been very good and prior to the Bundesliga match against Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig were on a 9 match unbeaten run which included 7 victories.

2. RBL vs Tottenham Betting Odds
Tottenham Hotspur have left themselves with work to do in this game having lost 1-0 at home. In truth, they could have conceded more than a single goal and may actually feel relieved they come into this match having conceded just the one away goal. The loss to RB Leipzig was their second straight defeat against a German club in the Champions League this season having previously lost 3-1 at Bayern Munich in the final game of the group stage.
However, Tottenham Hotspur’s away form is better than their form at home in the Champions League. Spurs have lost only one of their last 4 away matches in the competition. They have defeated Ajax, which was in the semi-final last season and Crvena Zvezda in the group stage this season. History also shows that Tottenham Hotspur are capable of picking up a result away from home in the Champions League. They have recently defeated Borussia Dortmund and picked up a draw in Barcelona which highlights what they can do on the road.
Unfortunately, injuries to some key players in attacking positions will not help them and Tottenham Hotspur are the 4/1 outsiders with Bet365 to win the game. We have more RB Leipzig vs Tottenham predictions below.
3. RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips
RB Leipzig have only played 6 home Champions League games in the history and they have struggled to keep clean sheets. In fact, they have conceded at least 1 goal in all 6 games and this will give Tottenham Hotspur some confidence they can score. Tottenham Hotspur have a very impressive away goalscoring record in the Champions League and have found the back of the net at least once in each of their last 14 away games in the competition.
The RB Leipzig vs Tottenham betting odds with Bet365 offer 3/4 for both teams to score and you can combine that with a home win at 12/5.
