Lamela booked for hitting Sabitzer with an arm in an aerial challenge. It might be one of the Argentiniean's best performances in a Spurs shirt by
Moura heads a great chance over the bar following a ball to the back post from Davies.
Another free kick for Spurs in an attacking position 30 yards from goal, Lamela goes for goal and forces the keeper to tip wide.
Emil Forsberg comes on for Konrad Laimer for Leipzig's last substitute.
The game really has turned these last few minutes. The Leipzig players now keen to waste time and slow the game down, as you would usually expect from an away side.
Schick, who on another night could have had at least two goals, is replaced by Yussuf Poulsen.
Good positive play from Spurs has got the fans back involved. Lamela really giving the side a lift - yes, you read that right.
Lo Celso hit a superb curling free kick that Gulasci gets an outstretched hand onto, to flick the ball onto the post.
Nkunku gives away a free kick and gets a yellow card for fouling Lamela slightly to the right of the D.
Bergwijn has pushed up to play upfront with Moura. Lamela playing on the left. Leipzig haven't started many attacks there so far. You wonder if they will now.
Lamela and Ndombele come on for Alli and Fernandes. Alli not too happy to come off.
Another great stop from Lloris. Another fantastic move, ending with Werner dummying to set up Schick ten yards out but Lloris dives to his left to push out the attempt on goal.
Bergwijn gets behind the Leipzig defence and plays back to Lo Celso 20 yards from goal but Gulacsi saves comfortably.

Nkunku tries to clip the free kick over the wall but it is high over the bar.
Aurier fouls Schick just outside of the box.
Good ball from Aurier into the box and Moura opened his body and guided it towards the back post but Gulacsi pushed away.
A delay as toilet roll is cleared up in the Spurs area - insert your own joke - thrown from the Leipzig fans, apparently protesting ticket prices.
Spurs get the second half underway. No changes for Tottenham at half time surprisingly.
Says it all this Tweet
Not sure how, but the game is still all-square.
Aurier plays the ball into Alli's feet in the box and he does well to win a corner.
It looks like Spurs will hold out until half time amazingly.
Werner races down the left flank and puts in a low ball. Sanchez dived very early and puts the ball out in front of Schick, with his chest.
Fernandes puts a superb ball in from the right flank which Alli just misses getting his head onto.
Mourinho really needs to do something about the Leipzig left hand side and give some support to Aurier out there. We've always known he's weaker defensively but against tonight's opponents he is way out of his depth at the moment.
Best opportunity of the match to Werner. Angelino squeezes the ball throuhg to him and he pokes the ball straight at Lloris at chest height and it is out for a corner.
Foul on Fernandes 30 yards from goal. No Eriksen anymore, so Lo Celso takes it, and wastes it.
Werner goes into the book for a foul on Winks.
Excellent 65 yard run from Lo Celso from the touchline near his own box to the edge of the opposition's, he slipped in Bergwijn but the German side managed to clear.
Finally, 'Oh when the Spurs' rings out from the stands, the atmosphere mostly nervy and with good reason.
A few minutes of respite for Spurs ends with Angelino arriving on the left flank and sliding a ball just in front of Werner's outstretched leg, but he was offside.
The ball is living in the Spurs defensive third at the moment. Timo Werner causing all sorts of problems on the left flank. The Spurs defensive very stout at the moment but how long can they hang on.
Another chance for Schick, he gets away from his marker Ben Davies then beats Dele Alli to the corner and flicks his header just wide.
It does all look difficult for Tottenham, you feel Leipzig could hit them on the break at any time. On this occasion Lo Celso concedes a corner under pressure from Sabitzer.
Sabitzer gets a yellow card, for a foul on Bergwijn who was looking to break for Spurs.
Lo Celso booked for a late challenge on Sabitzer. Has a lot of quality on the ball but doesn't look good when other team have it.
Leipzig look so sharp. Nice link play sets up Schick 20 yards from goal but his effort is easily saved by Lloris.
Great save from Gulasci. Lo Celso played a beautiful ball to Bergwijn who turned onto his right foot but the Leipzig keeper was equal to it.
Winks makes a blocks from a shot from Werner on the edge of the box.
Spurs looking to play long diagonal balls to beat the Leipzig press but they are struggling to keep the ball when they get it in attacking postions.
Spurs really need to settle down.
Leipzig hit the post and Lloris makes a superb stop. The first effort is blocked by Lloris's legs onto the post from Angelino.
Schick cleverly flicks the ball past Alderweireld but hits his 20-yard effort a metre or so wide.
Leipzig get us underway...
The teams walk out to deafening roars of 'Come on you Spurs', which make way for the Champions League anthem. Really up for this one. Spurs without their strikers, Leipzig without key defenders - who adjusts best?
The bookies have Leipzig as slight favourites for this game, you would hope the home fans understand just because they are not playing one of Europe's glamour boys they are still up against it and they stay behind the team in what is likely to be tough going.
Although as a club Leipzig have little history, the region was a football hotbed historically, boasting the first ever German champions in VfB Leipzig in 1904 and FC Lok reaching the Uefa Cup Winners Cup final in 1987 where they lost to Ajax and a goal from Marco van Basten. Unseemly as it is for many, they at least give the old East Germany some presence in the Bundesliga outside of Berlin.
Decent scenes from the Leipzig fans on the way to the ground.
You wouldn't say Spurs look buzzing coming out the tunnel.
As for Leipzig they will have few supporters back home in Germany tonight outside their own supporters, with other club's fans mostly unified in disliking the franchise nature of the club, which was only formed 11 years ago.
Chelsea have even more reason to cheer against their London rivals with their on-loan starlet Ethan Ampadu starting for the German side.
As expected Lucas Moura will start up front for Spurs and, on the surface at least, it appears Jose Mourinho has resisted the temptation to play defensive in the home leg, with Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn all supporting the Brazilian makeshift frontman.
Tottenham: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Winks, Gedson; Lo Celso, Dele, Bergwijn; Lucas.
RB Leipzig: Gulacsi; Mukiele, Klostermann, Halstenberg, Angelino; Sabitzer, Laimer; Ampadu, Nkunku, Schick, Werner.
