FT: Leipzig 3-0 Tottenham (4-0 agg). Leipzig were far too good for Spurs tonight. Vulnerable at the back, lacking of ideas in possession, this was a meek way to exit the competition. As for Leipzig, they could trouble anyone on this evidence - but they were playing a team in terrible form.

Werner moves the ball onto his right foot an unleashes a low shot. Lloris saves. His wait for a home goal goes on.
Fernandes tries his luck from range but the goalkeeper saves with relative ease.
Fagan-Walcott, 18 tomorrow, is on for Aurier. Another for Mourinho's list.
There will be six added minutes to add to Spurs' pain.
- GoalEmil ForsbergRB Leipzig
GOAL! Leipzig 3-0 Tottenham (Forsberg). Angelino runs past Aurier, his cross causes a goalmouth scramble and the ball drops to Forsberg, who scores with his first touch! That will be the end of that.
- OffMarcel SabitzerRB Leipzig
- OnEmil ForsbergRB Leipzig
Forsberg comes on for Sabitzer, who gets a massive ovation.
The Leipzig man is down after colliding with Tanganga, who is perhaps lucky that wasn't deemed a penalty.
Upamecano surges forward again, plays the ball to Haidara and almost gets on the end of the return pass, but Lloris is out quickly to quash the danger.
Upamecano smashes a shot straight into Tanganga's chest, flooring the Spurs man.
- OffGiovani Lo CelsoTottenham Hotspur
- OnGedson FernandesTottenham Hotspur
Mourinho finally makes a change - Lo Celso off for Fernandes.
Laimer loses out to Lo Celso deep in his own half, but the final ball lets down Lo Celso.
Moura breezes past his man on the left and cuts the ball back for Alli, who has a promising chance but can't divert the ball towards the far corner, where it would have been harder to save. Alli was caught after he shot, the referee isn't interested in awarding a penalty.
Schick leads a promising counter-attack but can't make up his mind, eventually passing to nobody.
- Yellow cardMarcel SabitzerRB Leipzig
Now Sabitzer is booked for fouling Alli. This has got very scrappy.
- Yellow cardDele AlliTottenham Hotspur
Alli booked for petulance. Who would've thought it?
- Yellow cardJaphet TangangaTottenham Hotspur
Tanganga is book for pulling Werner to the floor, more out of frustration than need.
Mukiele was briefly unconscious and swallowed his tongue, according to Leipzig, but appears to be recovering well.
Upamecano goes on a forward excursion. It comes to nothing, but shows how comfortable Leipzig feel.
Still relevant. Truth hurts.
Lamela and Sabitzer collide, leaving the latter on the floor. He'll be okay.
Lo celso connects with Sessegnon, who is in down the left, but his cross evades Alli and is put behind for a corner.
Werner runs an Dier and has the Englishman backpeddling, giving Werner space, but he shoots over from 25 yards out.
- OffChristopher NkunkuRB Leipzig
- OnAmadou HaidaraRB Leipzig
Nkunku, who has been quiet in relative terms, makes way for Haidara.
Moura lashes over from range.
Schick shoots over, but a third goal for the hosts seems more likely than a Spurs one.
- OffNordi MukieleRB Leipzig
- OnTyler AdamsRB Leipzig
The American Adams comes on for Mukiele, who is stretchered off.
Mukiele takes a ball to the face and needs treatment. This seems like it may be serious - the referee is certainly concerned.
- Yellow cardKonrad LaimerRB Leipzig
Laimer goes into the book after pulling down Lo Celso.
Moura skilfully gets away from Sabitzer, but then loses the ball after a sloppy touch. It's been one of those days for him.
We're back underway, with no changes for either side. Atalanta lead 2-1, and 6-2 on aggregate, in the other match.
HT: Leipzig 2-0 Tottenham. (3-0 agg). To be honest, Spurs are lucky it's only 2-0. They have looked vulnerable on the break all game and offered pretty little going forward. They are just 45 minutes away from crashing out of the competition.
- Yellow cardHarry WinksTottenham Hotspur
Winks is booked for a cynical foul.
One added minute.
After something of a scramble in the box, Dier's clearance is blocked by Schick and looks to be going in - but Lloris claws the ball away from danger.
Aurier wins a corner late in the half. A commanding Gulacsi comes out and claims.
Lo Celso creates some space for himself and looks to curl an effort into the far corner, but is denied by the goalkeeper. Tottenham's best chance so far.
Alli leaps but can't get on the end of a floated Sessegnon cross.
What is there to lose?
It's hard to see how Tottenham score three goals from here. They don't seem to have much of a plan in possession and keep getting caught out.
The free-kick is cleared as far as Sabitzer, who fancies his hat-trick, but his shot is deflected wide.
- Yellow cardRyan SessegnonTottenham Hotspur
Sessegnon steps on the back of Mukiele's ankle - accidental, but it will still have hurt. He screams in pain and Sessegnon picks up a booking.
Werner comes out to the left and then runs at Tanganga. When more runners arrive, the defence backs off and Werner has space to shoot, but sends the ball wide.
When Mourinho cannot sort out a defence, you know he'll be in trouble.
Werner has another opening, but this time Lloris beats away his shot at teh near post.
Klostermann dispossesses Moura - just about legally - to squish out anther Spurs attack before it even starts.
Spurs repel a corner, Lamela picks up the loose ball, beats one player and it looks like the break is on - only for Leipzig to win back possession, start a counter-attack of their own and win another corner.
- GoalMarcel SabitzerRB Leipzig
GOAL! Leipzig 2-0 Tottenham (Sabitzer). Angelino finds joy coming forward on the left once again, his cross is met with a glorious glancing header from Sabitzer and Lloris cannot keep the ball out at his near post. A smart goal and Spurs have a mountain to climb now.
Even those of us without good German get the message.
Leipzig break from that corner, Angelino has the ball on the left and his low cross is converted by Werner - but the flag is up. He was just off. An escape for Tottenham, but Leipzig look so dangerous on the break.
Aurier sends in a really good cross and Upamecano makes a fine interjection to put the ball behind.
After Dier and Tanganga get in a mix-u, it looks like Werner could be in, but Dier recovers just in time.
Should Lloris have done better? Probably. It wasn't the most fierce of strikes but squirmed under his hand.
- GoalMarcel SabitzerRB Leipzig
GOAL! Leipzig 1-0 Tottenham (Sabitzer). After the hosts break, Werner sees his shot blocked but the ricochet is moved on to Sabitzer, not far outside the area, and his low shot beats Lloris - who got a touch - and nestles into the corner.
This hasn't been a bad start from the visitors, who seem to have a bit more verve on the ball than in recent weeks.
A quick throw-in sparks a Leipzig counter. Werner's pace gets in behind the defence and the ball is eventually worked to a slipping Angelino, who shoots and sees his effort - which was going wide - blocked by Aurier.
Lamela beats his man with some nifty footwork and looks to release Moura, but the Brazilian had had to check his run to stay onside and as a result couldn't beat the defender to the ball.
Dele, in theory Spurs' most advanced player, drops deep and wins a free-kick inside his own half.
Dier concedes an early corner in sloppy fashion, Moura heads it clear.
The Spanish referee gets the game underway.
The teams are in the tunnel; Leipzig in white shirts with red shorts, tottenham all in nacy blue. The full stadium - something we'll not be seeing a lot of in the coming weeks - sounds pretty loud.
A man who could really do with a big performance tonight to ram down the critics' throats.
Werner's seven Champions League goals have all come away from home. He's failed to score in six home matches in this competition, shooting 22 times in the process.
Mourinho said previously that the club needed to decide to prioritise tonight or the Burnley game, they couldn't do both. Well they lost to Burnley and are now seven points off the top four - but more importantly behind Manchester United, Sheffield United and Wolves in the chasing pack. It may not be overdramatic so tonight could make or break their season.
Tottenham are in terrible form. They haven't won any of their last five games, losing four if you include going out of the FA Cup on penalties. They haven't won since Son Heung-min was ruled out with injury.
Already 1-0 up on aggregate, Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann insists Tottenham remain a "good team with a lot of good players" despite some notable absentees. He says Spurs have a "clear plan" - something some critical of Jose Mourinho might take issue with - and will be "dangerous with their counter attacks". Click below for more of his thoughts.
Tottenham could make the wrong kind of history tonight.
Here is Mourinho - on Steven Bergwijn's fresh injury and being 1-0 down at "half-time" of this tie.
As for Spurs - who have the worse injury crisis in history, Jose Mourinho would have you believe, there are no major surprises. Jan Vertonghen must make do with a place on the bench, Eric Dier is in central defence, and Ryan Sessegnon makes a rare start, having scored in Germany earlier in the campiagn. Troy Parrott is on the bench, so too Tanguy Ndombele, who Mourinho was so scathing about on Saturday evening.
TOTTENHAM: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Tanganga, Sessegnon, Winks Lo Celso, Lamela, Moura, Dele. Subs: Gazzaniga, Fagan-Walcott, Vertonghen, Skipp, Ndombele, Fernandes, Parrott.
Here's how the hosts line up, making just one change from the first leg. Ethan Ampadu makes way for Dayot Upamecano, who has been turning plenty of heads this season. The lethal Timo Werner leads the line.
RB LEIPZIG: Gulacsi, Mukiele, Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg, Angelino, Laimer, Sabitzer, Nkunku, Schick, Werner.
Before that, why not take a look at what the newspapers across Europe have been saying today? One man who almost joined Spurs in the summer makes an appearance, although in relation to another English club.
Good evening and welcome to LIVE coverage of Tottenham Hotspur's match against RB Leipzig. Down 1-0, the English side have it all to do and many of the players they would hope could do something special missing. However, they famously overcame worse odds last season. Team news is on the way next.
