Spurs midfielder Harry Winks believes they can overturn their Champions League tie with RB Leipzig.

Updated: Nov 20, 2023

Spurs were beaten 1-0 by RB Leipzig as Timo Werner’s second-half penalty hands the Bundesliga club an advantage going into the second leg in three weeks time.

England midfielder Harry Winks believes Tottenham Hotspur can topple RB Leipzig and secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Lilywhites were beaten 1-0 at home in the first leg of their last-16 tie with the Bundesliga club on Wednesday night, thanks to a second-half penalty by Timo Werner.

As things stand the Premier League club will have to get a win in Germany next month to go through to the next round of Europe's elite competition - like they did last term in the semi-finals when they lost the home leg 1-0 to Ajax before pulling off a remarkable comeback in Amsterdam.

“The last two years we’ve had our adversity in the Champions League and we’ve somehow found ways of proving everybody wrong,” Winks said.

“It’s going to be a difficult task as they’re a good side and going there is never going to be easy. We strongly believe that we can go there and cause an upset.

“The manager’s come in and told us the game’s not over and we know that as well.

“The last two years in the Champions League has been difficult for us but we’ve found ways of coming out on top and hopefully we can do the same when we go there.”
