first_imgJoshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:26 pm Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:24 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG64′ Dele is not happy. The England man is subbed off – along with Gedson Fernandes – as Erik Lamela and Tanguy Ndombele come on to try and shake things up.There is no reaction from Mourinho and Dele is clearly frustrated as he throws a water bottle and one of his boots down. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:22 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG62′ This tie could have been over. Spurs have Hugo Lloris to thank.Angelino has all the time in the world down the left and feeds the ball into Werner. The German dummies it brilliantly to give Schick a glorious opportunity but the Czech cannot beat Lloris from eight yards.Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:20 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGLo Celso forces Gulacsi into another save. Bergwijn gets away down the left and pulls it back to the Argentine who feints to beat a defender but his low drive from 20 yards is straight at the Hungarian. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:18 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG59′ That is his 26th goal of this phenomenal season for Timo Werner. Ice. Cool. Premier League managers, are you watching? Load more entries… RB LEIPZIG were 1-0 winners over Tottenham with a dominant display in North London.Timo Werner’s penalty proved decisive as the Germans take a slender advantage into the second leg.Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:39 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGHere’s Julian Nagelsmann: “You have to perform at the same level again. It is only one game. “It is possible to beat Tot in their stadium so it is possible to win in our stadium.“It will be complicated in the second leg but it is possible with the right performance.”Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:30 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGMourinho on Dele: “I think he was angry with his performance, not with me,“I think he understood why I took him off and the team improved. “It’s difficult [to have Dele as a striker]. It is difficult to tell you our direction in the near future. “We are going to try things like we did with Lamela. “We are speaking about a very difficult situation.If I could I would move immediately to July 1 with Son, Kane, Lamela, Bergwijn, Dele but I am not I am on February 19.“I arrived 12 points behind fourth, we are now one point behind fourth. “The Chelsea players will be watching this on TV with nice sparkling water, lemon and we will not even sleep well. Thank you.”And as Jose leaves his presser, he sarcastically says “great question” to the journalist that asked whether RB Leipzig played well or Spurs played badly. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:25 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGMore from Mourinho: “I’m not going to answer your question. I don’t like it.“Lamela didn’t train once with the team. He did a warm-up for the cameras. But he did not train. That is the player you saw play the last 20 minutes like he did. “Lucas and Bergwijn you saw two very tired players who gave absolutely everything. They will play again on Saturday morning.“The thing that keeps me confident is the mentality of my players – not just as players but as guys. They are a fantastic group of players.“They played with Werner, Schick, Nkunku. Both out after 70 minutes of incredible effort and intensity. They can leave Lookman on the bench. “On our bench we have one attacking player who did not train once. When I tried to change the shape of the team, I played with two players who were very tired. “We are in a very difficult situation, I am so so proud of my players. I am worried it will be like this for the rest of the season, it will be exactly the same. “One thing I can guarantee for the second leg is that even with whoever in attack, we are going there to fight.”Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:20 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGMourinho on Lo Celso: “You are right. He is playing fantastic. He played so well. He got a yellow card which is a huge limitation. “He managed it so well and in the last 20 minutes he was phenomenal with and without the ball.”Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:19 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGMourinho: “The result. 1-0 is 1-0 it is not 10-0. The result is open, it’s as simple as that. “We will not be the first team to lose at home and then win the tie.”Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:18 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGHere comes Jose…The Spurs manager is in his press conference now. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 10:13 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGThe visitors enjoyed more of the ball, more passes, more shots and, crucially, all the goals tonight.It means Spurs must score twice to win in normal time when they head to Germany in three weeks.A 1-0 away win would force extra time and then potentially penalties.Fail to win and, of course, last season’s finalists would be dumped out. center_img Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:55 pmFT: SPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIGThat’s it. Half-time in this tie and Spurs trail 1-0. Dele is straight down the tunnel, not happy. A very late penalty appeal from the home side was more out of desperation than anything else. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:53 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG90+4′ A late booking for Lamela for using his arm as he goes up for a header.A minute to go and the RB Leipzig fans are in full voice.Unsurprisingly, the same cannot be said for Dele.The camera pans to him and he looks furious sat on the bench. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:51 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG90+2′ Winks tries his luck from distance.But his side-footed effort was far too tame to cause any damage and succeeds only in giving the ball away. Poor decision. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:49 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG90′ FIVE minutes added on. Can Spurs find a crucial equaliser? Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:49 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG89′ Davies looks to make amends for conceding the penalty by almost setting up an equaliser.He stands it up and Lucas somehow – possibly with a slight push in the back – gets up to win it in the air.But the Brazilian cannot keep it down. Ampadu and Mukiele both receive treatment – the former from his goalkeeper for cramp and the latter for a nose bleed. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:45 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG85′ Another tricky run through the midfield – this time by Lucas – leads to another bundling over by a Leipzig defender – this time Halstenberg. Lamela shoots and has Gulacsi scrambling across his line but he gets down to turn it away. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:42 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG83′ Penalty-winner Laimer trudges off holding his shoulder after a collision with Lo Celso.He comes off and Emil Forsberg is on in midfield as Lo Celso lines up another free-kick in a similar position to the one a few minutes ago…This time he hits the wall. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:39 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG80′ Aurier goes flying to the ground as he realises he cannot get past Halstenberg down the Spurs right. He goes crazy, the White Wall goes crazy, Jose Mourinho goes crazy. But the referee is having none of it. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:36 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG76′ Schick comes off and Yussuf Poulsen is on in his place for the final quarter of an hour or so. A night of nearly moments for the Czech tonight… the early shot, the header and then the big chance in the second half when he was denied by Lloris. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:34 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG74′ Amadou Haidara replaces Nkunku, who was just booked.Mukiele goes down like a sack of potatoes after a tussle with Lamela… but suddenly jumps to his feet to get back and defend when Spurs look to get forward.That doesn’t endear him to the home crowd.Replays show Lamela put his arm across to shield the ball… nothing in that. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:32 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG73′ Answer: ALMOST!Lo Celso steps up and whips a curling effort towards the far post…But Gulacsi flies across to tip the strike on to the post for a corner. A fine save from the ex-Liverpool man. Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:30 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG72′ Lo Celso is the man looking the most creative once again for Spurs.He shows some good feet on the edge of the box and is brought down with Nkunku shown a yellow. Can one of the men over the free-kick deliver?Joshua Jones20 Feb 2020, 9:28 pmSPURS 0-1 RB LEIPZIG69′ As you can see from his touch map, Dele struggled to have too much of an impact on the game – and certainly not in the areas he would have liked. He had that one nice turn in the box to win the corner at the end of the first half but otherwise was limited to touches deep and out on the left. last_img
