Top Winners, Losers After Tuesday’s Champions League Round-of-16 Leg-2 Results

Jose Mourinho is anything but a spent power at the top level in Europe, yet his skeptics and pundits are developing in number after Tottenham Hotspur tumbled out of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

Mourinho’s group were beaten 3-0 away by RB Leipzig in the second leg of their last-16 conflict. It included another misfortune for his offer to reestablish his notoriety following being sacked by Manchester United in December 2018.

Those endeavors haven’t been helped by another exit from the round of 16, but one incited as much by key wounds and the battles of Hugo Lloris. All things considered, it’s as yet a similar destiny Mourinho and United endured because of Sevilla two years prior.

Angelino and Co. tore through a dazed Spurs barrier undermined by a bad dream appearing from goalkeeper Lloris. The Frenchman ought to have improved to preclude both from securing Marcel Sabitzer’s objectives in the principal half.

Objectives weren’t an issue for Josip Ilicic and Atalanta, whose first season at this level keeps on conveying thrills. The 32-year-old playmaker found the net multiple times away to Valencia to seal a striking 8-4 total triumph for the Champions League debutant.
