Cologne 2-4 Leipzig
Goals : Córdoba (7e), Modest (55e) to Cologne // Schick (20e), Nkunku (38e), Werner (50e), Olmo (58e) to Leipzig
The festival of Cologne. At the end of a part where the attackers have been able to have fun, the RB Leipzig has regained its third place on the podium by spitting the Rams (2-4) on Monday night.
After the first few minutes titillating and a big parade of Timo Horn in front of the other Timo (Werner), the RB do not think make a mouthful of his host of the evening. Yes, but here it is : for some time, the defence of Roten Bullen do not breathe the serenity. To such an extent that Cologne is a hit on his first foray into the surface : Elvis Rexhbecaj arrives and knocks out the pole, but the leather back on Jhon Córdoba, who lights Péter Gulácsi (1-0). The catch ? The rear-guard of the Goats is even more brinquebalante than its counterpart saxon. The RB has no evil to make up his lost time and take the lead. Transformed since his arrival in Leipzig, Angeliño sign, a wonder of center for the head of Patrick Schick (1-1)before the monster of the mid-Konrad Laimer put Christopher Nkunku on orbit (1-2). Far from being grandiose, the clique of Julian Nagelsmann returned to the locker room to the commands of the meeting.
And there is something to be zen, because the defense of premises has not submitted the record straight during the break. Five minutes after the restart, a free kick offensive to the Goats is simply transformed in order offered to the visitors : Gulácsi has only to pick up the leather and hold in-depth for Werner, almost amazed to find himself as alone. The result is an easy guess : 1-3. In such a garden of Eden, there’s something for everyone : even a Dani Olmo tasteless until then can register his first bastos in BuLi (2-4). And fortunately, because between-time, Anthony Modeste had also benefited from a gift from Lukas Klostermann to send a sumptuous strike in the background (2-3). The result will be the same quality : face-to-face harvested (hi Werner, Modest and Sabitzer), the actions of the cool things ruined by lack of realism (exchange of politeness between Nkunku and Olmo in particular)…
Regardless, Leipzig remains in contact with the Borussia Dortmund, with two delay units only.
