Tottenham have been drawn against RB Leipzig in the Champions League Round of 16.

Jose Mourinho’s side sealed their place in the knockout rounds with one game to spare in the group stages, beating Olympiacos at home to secure second place in the group behind winners Bayern Munich.

Spurs reached the final last year only to lose against Liverpool after an extraordinary semi-final victory over Ajax. The Londoners will believe anything is possible this year, but equally they will be delighted to have drawn Leipzig.

Despite being one of the best teams in Germany right now, Leipzig looks like a generous draw compared to the sides Tottenham could have faced. Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus were all possibilities.

Meanwhile, Manchester City and Liverpool have been handed tough ties against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid respectively, while Chelsea face Bayern Munich in a repeat of the 2012 final that had a big effect on Spurs.

Tottenham fans have been reacting on Twitter. Here are some of the best responses – it’s safe to say most of the supporters are very happy.




  1. Tough draw, tougher than many fans may realise yet like has been said in the tweets could have been much worse.
    I think we should have enough to get past them, especially as Jose will have had a good amount of time to implement his ideas by then
