Welcome to FOX SPORTS’ live coverage of the Champions League Round of 16 clash between Tottenham and RB Leipzig.
Jose Mourinho returns to the Champions League with his an injury-hit Tottenham squad now without Heung-min Son as well as the talismanic Harry Kane.
The South Korean has been effectively ruled out for the rest of the season by Mourinho after breaking his arm in the first minute of the win over Aston Villa at the weekend – despite playing the full 90 minutes and scoring twice.
Spurs conceded twice in that game and RB Leipzig striker and Liverpool target Timo Werner will be licking his lips at the thought of playing against that ropey defence.

“The situation couldn’t be worse in terms of options,” said Mourinho. “There is nothing that we can do.
“We are going to play with the players that we have available. The players are going to give absolutely everything. In some periods, I was worried about not having attacking options on the bench; now I don’t have attacking options on the pitch.
“Are we going to give up or are we going to fight the way we can? We are going to fight the way we can. We know it is very unfair for the players after such hard work.
“Yesterday, the bad news…the first thing was to break our hearts and the second thing was to break our team. But we have to recover from broken hearts.
“Probably opponents, they are thinking ‘wow, now is the time to kill them’. I understand if they think that way but I don’t think it is easy for Leipzig to play against us.”
