RB Leipzig remains on the march in the Bundesliga. Three days after Celtic Glasgow’s 1st lap in the Europa League, the Saxons beat Bayer Leverkusen with 3:0 (1:0) and climbed past Bayern Munich in third place. The strong Yussuf Poulsen by double pack (27, 85) and Lukas Klostermann (68) met for RB.
Leverkusen had to accept another painful setback after the victory in the Europa League against FC Zurich (1:0) and the qualification for the K.o. round.
“Whether 3:0 or 2:0, it was important that the zero stood. Leverkusen didn’t stand a chance except for a free kick. Such an achievement against an offensive strong team is worthy of all credit, especially since we still had Thursday’s game in the bones,”said a satisfied RB coach Ralf Rangnick after the whistle at”Sky”.
Heiko Gorlich’s team in the Bundesliga with eleven points close to the drop-off zone, criticizing the”Sky”.
The head coach of the factory self is expected to resume driving in the next few days.
In front of 36.155 spectators, RB was able to bet again on Timo Werner, who had cured his toe injury in the storm. Compared to the Celtic Slap, Rangnick had converted to eight positions. The point of the offensive game was the strong Kevin Kampl, who at first set up with Marcel Halstenberg Werner again and again, but the national player lacked the precision in the end.
referee Reichel with correct goal decision
Leverkusen had to give up the last strong Karim Bellarabi (muscle problems) and did not stay under the line compelling enough. With Julian Brandt, Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland, Glorious had nominally offered a lot of offensive power, which was good for the game, but the guests did not get enough capital out of it. It became dangerous when Brandt (14) flanked from the right and could clear Leipzigs Stefan Ilsanker just before the finish.
When the game of the two European Cup participants faded slightly, Poulsen took care of the watchman. After a long pass by Diego Demme, the Danish World Cup participant (27) skillfully played the ball through Bayers Schlussmann Lukas Hrecki. Arbitrator Tobias Reichel initially decided to stay away, but was rightly taught a better lesson by video evidence. Shortly thereafter, Kampl would have placed almost 2:0 after a mistake by Tin Jedvaj.
Havertz is passing the gate – Poulsen on fire
Leverkusen quickly shook off the delay and pressed for the balance before the break. Havertz cleverly let Ilsanker run into the void, threatening the ball with full risk but close to the goal. But all in all, there was not enough of the Bayer offensive, the last will and the necessary breakthrough power was lacking for the team of Glorious.
In the second half, Glorious reinforced the attack with Leon Bailey for Jedvaj. RB fell with the lead in the back, Bayer had to come, but for a long time remained too anointed and unimaginative in the construction game. Klostermann worried with his distance shot (68.) in the 100th. Play for RB for the preliminary decision before Poulsen finally put the lid on it.
