Dele Alli devastated after RB Leipzig eliminate sorry Spurs out of Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur have been knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 after a 3-0 loss to RB Leipzig in Germany on Tuesday.

Spurs were never at the races as Leipzig made it a 2-0 advantage on aggregate when Hugo Lloris failed to stop Marcel Sabitzer's 10th minute strike.

Lloris was at fault again when he failed to stop Sabitzer's near-post header.

Emil Forsberg then put the icing on the cake with three minutes to seal Leipzig's place in the quarter-finals.

Speaking after the game, midfielder Dele Alli said: "It's devastating. We had belief before the game and we didn't perform. This is the Champions League, if you don't step up you will be punished.

"After the first one went in it didn't change much but we conceded too many chances as a team. It's hard to come back from those two goals. We had to show our maturity and fight and we didn't do that."
