Mourinho’s Champions League Campaign came to an end as Leipzig cruise into quarters

Tottenham crashed out of the Champions League after losing 4-0 on aggregate to RB Leipzig.

Leipzig won 1-0 on the first leg in the North London and Marcel Sabitzer’s first half double in the 21 minutes put the German side in control, before substitute Emil Forsberg added the third late on with his first touch.


Unlike other champions league fixtures across Europe this week, there were no restrictions on supporters attending due to the spread of Coronavirus and the Leipzig fans were able to enjoy a nerve-free evening.

Mourinho left the club record signing Tanguy Ndombele on the bench after publicly criticising the French midfielder in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Burnley. The switch to a 3-4-3 formation did not stop Spurs’ winless streak in all competitions to six games.

In spite of the heavy defeat, Mourinho does not expect to see a summer overhaul at Spurs this summer.

Mourinho explains: “I don’t think we will have a big rebuild, this summer, unless something happens during the Euros, We have Sissoko back, we have Kane, we have Son, that is massive”.

After the defeat by Leipzig in the Champions League, Mourinho added: “Look, of course I was positive yesterday, that’s the way I have to be all of the time. If you’re not positive it’s better not to come to the game“.

“It’s hard for us to score at the moment. Our first couple of mistakes they score and then it’s very difficult. Their physicality is incredible, their defenders win the duels, they stop the game“.

Atalanta have also joined RB Leipzig to book a place in the Champions League quarter-finals after beating the Spanish side Valencia 8-4 on aggregate.
