We have 8 fantastic ties to look forward to in the round of 16 stage of the 2019/20 Champions League this season. Four of the 8 matches involve teams from the English Premier League including Tottenham Hotspur, who reached the final of the competition last season. They have been drawn to face RB Leipzig of Germany, who will be playing in this stage of the Champions League first time in their history.
This is one of two clashes between Premier League and Bundesliga clubs in the Champions League round of 16 this season. Having already faced Bayern Munich in the group stage of the competition, this will be the second German club Tottenham Hotspur have played in the tournament this season and judging by the two results against the German champions, it may be a game they are not particularly looking forward to playing.
Let's find out more about the two teams and the odds for this game in our Tottenham vs RB Leipzig predictions and the latest Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig betting odds.
1. Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig - The Favourites
Tottenham Hotspur were drawn with Bayern Munich, Red Star Belgrade and Olympiakos in Group B of the Champions League. They were favourites along with Bayern Munich to qualify from the group but were forced to settle for 2nd place having lost twice against the German club. In fact, Tottenham Hotspur managed to win only 3 of their 6 group games with two of the victories coming against Red Star Belgrade who finished bottom of the group.
Tottenham Hotspur have a mixed bag of recent results at home in the Champions League. They won their final 2 group games against Red Star Belgrade and Olympiakos but suffered two defeats in a row prior to that against Ajax and Bayern Munich. However, they have won 6 of their last 8 home Champions League matches.
Jose Mourinho’s players will need to try and forget about the heavy 7-2 defeat at home against Bayern Munich and if they can play to their maximum capacity, Spurs have what it takes to win this game.

2. Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig Betting Odds
RB Leipzig are newcomers to this stage of the Champions League having qualified from the group stages for the first time. They came top of a group which contained Lyon, Benfica and Zenit St Petersburg. This group was seen by many to be the weakest in the competition this season but all 3 of the teams highlighted above have plenty of Champions League experience so it was not an easy task for RB Leipzig to win the group.
Good away wins in Benfica and Zenit St Petersburg were key to the progress of RB Leipzig and they performed better in away matches than they did at home. RB Leipzig picked up 7 of their 11 points from away games and this will give them plenty of confidence ahead of this match against Tottenham Hotspur.
RB Leipzig have been going well in the Bundesliga this season and are genuine contenders to win the title in Germany. Spurs cannot afford to underestimate their opponents but the Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig betting odds have the Germans as the outsiders, priced at 12/5 with Bet365.
