Only a hecatomb could deprive Leipzig of this in the next edition of the Champions League. His more than 20 goals in the overall ‘goal average’ with Leverkusen put the focus of the match on whether Nagelsmann’s team could keep third place against the harassment of M’Gladbach, who did have more at stake. None failed and everything was as it was. In the case of the ‘roten bullen’ it was thanks to a Timo Werner who said goodbye as best he knows: scoring. His double ended with Augsburg (1-2) and left his team third.

Leipzig dominated the duel from cover to cover. Mukiele was able to overtake his after a great pass from Haidarabut he inexplicably sent her over the crossbar. A shot of Rani Khedira deflected by the defense was the local aftershock and his clearest occasion of the entire duel except for the equalizer. The color of the encounter was increasingly red and Werner ended up doing justice before half an hour. The battering ram is not Mukiele and this time yes, Haidara’s good shipment ended in happy ending after the German dodges the exit from Koubek.
Nagelsmann’s team was able to increase the income after the break with a shot from Forsberg it was blocked. The VAR invalidated a direct red for Max and all the hiatus that entailed left Leipzig somewhat cold. So, Ruben Vargas He caught the rejection of a free kick to connect a right hand that slipped into Mvogo’s goal. The tie did not do justice apparently seen on the green and Werner, who if not in charge of remedying it.
The future Chelsea footballer transformed a long ball from Angeliño in a goal assist. He only cooked it for him and leaves his numbers in this Bundesliga in 24 goals and 8 assists. It will be difficult to cover his absence for Leipzig, who, with the domestic championship finished, can only wait for a rival in the quarterfinals of the Champions League that will be played in August.
