General | Latest Info

Spurs manager Mourinho was once considered one of the Champions League's top managers-winning in 2004 with Porto and 2010 with Inter Milan. But the Portuguese has now failed to win any of his eight Champions League knockout games since 2014. Stats do not make good reading. This was his heaviest ever Champions League aggregate defeat and it was the first six-game winless run of his 935-game managerial career. He rightly bemoans their injury list, with Steven Bergwijn joining Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko out of action-but they should still be doing better. Leipzig appeared hungrier, first to every ball, especially in the first half when damage was done. Their two wing-backs had beating of their opposite numbers, with Angelino, who looked ordinary in the first half of this season for Manchester City, causing Serge Aurier so many problems. In centre, Timo Werner-who scored only goal in the first leg three weeks ago-was having the time of his life against Eric Dier. The Spurs started well and Sabitzer's opener was against the run of play. Werner's shot was blocked and then he squared the ball to the midfielder to blast home from the outside of the box. Lloris could not keep the ball out despite getting touch. Defensive solidity was once Mourinho's forte but his side have kept just three clean sheets in 26 matches since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November. They were lucky not to be further behind when Werner tapped home Angelino's cross-but offside flag correctly went up. But the game was do when Aurier failed to deal with a long ball and Angelino crossed for Sabitzer to head past Lloris, who again touched the ball but let it through. Leipzig continued to have chances, with Werner forcing save and then shooting over the bar before Dier's attempted clearance from Patrik Schick almost went into the Spurs net. They had three shots on goal but Giovani lo Celso, Dele Alli and Gedson Fernandes' efforts all resulted in routine saves. Things did not get as bad in the second half as they could have, until Forsberg popped up to lash home the loose ball seconds after coming off the bench.

Leipzig's finest hour

Leipzig's unique history-or lack of it-make honour of the greatest moment in their history a bit more achievable. Since being founded by energy drinks giant Red Bull in 2009, they have won four promotions and played in one German Cup final. But this was their first ever Champions League knockout tie. They beat last year's finalists 4-0 on aggregate-and they deserve every bit of that victory. Their highly rat manager, Julian Nagelsmann-once nicknamed Baby Mourinho-is youngest person to manage in Champions League knockout tie. He is now the youngest to win one too. They have built a good squad on reasonably little money-by Champions League quarter-final standards-and Austrian Sabitzer was the different with his two goals. Leipzig have strength in depth too-imposing centre-back Dayot Upamecano missed the first leg but was excellent this time-and they could even bring on Sweden forward Forsberg in 87 minutes for Sabitzer to add fourth overall. That makes them the only team to ever take a 3-0 lead against Mourinho in the Champions League. Nagelsmann's side, five points off the top of the Bundesliga, have to wait until Friday, 20 March to discover their quarter-final opponents.
