- Tedesco has change options with quality
Between the European Cup Party of Bergamo and the Cup Highlight against the 1st FC Union Berlin, RB Leipzig celebrated an important victory in the race for the Champions League qualification.
In the top game of the football Bundesliga, which was only on the paper one, RB won thanks to Dominik Szoboszlai at Bayer Leverkusen with 1: 0 (0: 0) and repressed the Werkself from third place. “We are looking forward to the victory.

RB scores triple, Leverkusen at a loss
“I think we wanted it more,” said Matchwinner Szoboszlai. Despite the many changes in the starting formation, the team has lost no quality and then can bring fresh forces such as top scorer Christopher Nkunku. “It was difficult because we did not play well,” RB-Torwart Peter Gulacsi said with a view of the first half, only thanks to the change better.
The heavily violated Leverkusen now only have one point ahead of Freiburg rank five. The entry into the Champions League, the largest and last seasonal goal, gets heavy. The Bayer professionals looked helplessly in the evening sky after the final whistle. However, Freiburg is coming to Leverkusen on the last matchday.
“Too little right,” Bayer goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky arrested and appealed to his teammates, in the season final spurt the last forces to mobilize. “I think this game had no winner deserved,” Hradecky added.
RB Next The Best Back Round Team
Also twice the semi-finalist from Leipzig, who took part in the previous Thursday at Atalanta Bergamo in the leaks of the Europa League and receives at the coming Wednesday Union in the DFB Cup semi-finals, did not look fresh despite great-rotation of Tedesco. For the first time in his Bundesliga history Leipzig remained at a first half without a score.

The Leverkusen, in which Jonathan Tah was able to play despite his ribs suffered in the previous week, operated in a comparatively defensive 3-5-2 system with exclusively defensively oriented midfield players. Leipzig interpreted the same system with the two Aft Emil Forsberg and Szoboszlai nominally slightly more offensive.

The self-confidence of the guests also demonstrated the social media department of RB, which announced the list on Twitter with the words “Our Bayer-Bayers”. But Tedesco had whilled his starting elf wildly and only three field players compared to the Bergamo second leg in the team left. Thus, too, RB had too little self-understanding in his actions, and both teams initially equalized themselves at a tough level especially in midfield.
The first scorer was only in the 28th minute, when Bayers Patrik Schick cleared his storm partners Moussa Diaby, but from a pointed angle to RB-Keeper Gulacsi failed. Also the second good opportunity had Bayer, as a chic a cross of Exequiel Palacios with his head not caught properly (40th).
In the break, Tedesco brought the molded Nkunku. He put a dribbling in the penalty area after 39 seconds, the ball came to Szoboszlai and the hit the post. For about ten minutes later, Tedesco laid with Dani Olmo and Konrad Laimer, the second matchwinner from Bergamo. Leipzig was better in the game. Nordi Mukiele awarded the great chance to the 1-0, Szoboszlai took advantage of it on stored Nkunku seconds later.
