Tottenham vs Leipzig is not Mourinho vs Baby Mourinho, says Nagelsmann

Werner was again denied by Lloris nine minutes before the break as last season's finalists kept the game scoreless.

Some jerseys had a red and yellow Red Bull logo embroidered on the front, while for others the shirt sponsor was in white.

A clumsy tackle by Tottenham defender Ben Davies on Konrad Laimer led to the penalty that Werner converted in the 58th minute.

Even returning to the Champions League next season is far from certain, and could rely on fifth place in the Premier League being enough to secure a spot if Manchester City's European ban is upheld.

"It wasn't on the bus, and that's why there was a bit of a mix-up". They will travel to Germany as favourites for elimination, however, after Timo Werner's second-half penalty, it was enough to settle the first leg. "We'll have the right kit".

Leipzig are now second in the German Bundesliga and trail leaders Bayern Munich by a single point.

Julian Nagelsmann insists it will not be a case of Mourinho v Baby Mourinho when his RB Leipzig side visit Tottenham in the Champions League on Wednesday. All too obvious, and nothing to do here it is impossible, said Mourinho, as quoted by the press service of UEFA.

"We have to do the same like today and we have a good start for the first half [of the tie] and we will go on".

Tottenham was already trailing at that point, and it took going behind to find the goal threat absent in the first half. We wouldn't be first team to lose 1-0 at home and to win the tie away.

"They were more patient and defended well against Tottenham's counter-attacking game". I think it his 59th knockout game in the Champions League and it is my first so there is obviously respect there'.
