LONDON (ENGLAND) – Leipzig masterpiece, Mourinho flop. The Germans won at home to Tottenham mortgaging the Champions League quarter-finals on their first participation in the final phase of the competition. The race was decided by a goal by Werner on a penalty kick propitiated by a net foul by Davies on Laimer.
Tottenham have deservedly lost since they never really entered the game. Indeed Leipzig has repeatedly touched the blow of the knockout. Angelino hit a post, while Schick was unable to take advantage of two convenient net chances. In any case, the former Roma striker played a good game.
For Mourinho things get complicated. With this defeat, he is one step away from being eliminated from the Champions League. An embarrassing result if we consider the fact that Tottenham is the reigning European vice champion.
Failing in Europe would force Mourinho to return to the Champions League through the Premier League, but Tottenham is currently out of the top four. The Special One cannot afford another bankruptcy after the one in Manchester but Leipzig will need a company.
