RB Leipzig delivered in the Bundesliga title race and plunged Werder Bremen even deeper into the crisis.
The Leipzig team won 3-0 (2-0) at home against desolate Bremer on Saturday (February 15th, 2020). Lukas Klostermann (18th), Patrik Schick (39th) and Nordi Mukiele (46th) scored the goals for the superior Saxons in the sold out Leipzig arena.
With the first win after four competitive games without a threesome, RB gained new self-confidence for the Champions League. In the premier class, Leipzig must compete in the first leg of the first leg at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday (February 19, 2020).
For Werder Bremen it looks http://main-news.website/i-can-t-see-instagram-highlights/ extremely bleak in the league with still 17 points. The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt delivered a playful oath of revelation and conceded the eighth defeat from the past nine league games. The debate about dismissing the popular coach is likely to gain momentum again.
Eggestein: “Clearly address mistakes”
Bremen midfielder Maximilian Eggestein admitted after the game on the Sportschau microphone: “The initial phase was perfectly fine, but then we get simple goals with two set-pieces – that simply can’t happen to us. But we also have to create more chances, otherwise we can never win a game. It is encouraging that we still have twelve games – it is important that we stand together and clearly address our mistakes. “
RB coach Julian Nagelsmann agreed with his team’s performance: “It was a sovereign performance. We didn’t set off any fireworks now, but we had Bremen under control and once again scored goals according to standards. Overall, we had a good greed when defending – The opponent had almost no dangerous situation.
After the 3-0 win, we could have made it a little easier to save Körner for Wednesday. But it was okay, the guys tried a little further. Now we can it’s about regeneration and then we can look forward to Tottenham. “
Almost nothing to the front.
In Bremen Gebre Selassie moved to the right defensive side after surviving a thigh injury, Maximilian Eggestein and Davy Klaassen were supposed to shape the game from the sixth position, but found no means. A long-range shot by Friedl (33rd), which just brushed over the goal, was the only chance to score for a long time. Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann initially left playmaker Emil Forsberg back on the bench, winter newcomer Dani Olmo was preferred.
The hosts played consistently over the wings, got pretty easily in the back of the Bremen three-man chain and could have led significantly higher in the first half. However, the hosts needed standard situations for the goals. After a free kick from Angelino, the strong Schick extended to Lukas Klostermann, and the national player netted from close range.
Badly defended at standards.
The 2-0 was even easier. After a corner, Schick created the necessary space in the six-yard area with a slight push against Milos Veljkovic and headed unhindered. After half time, Leipzig continued to set the tone.
A long ball from Konrad Laimer was enough to outsmart the Bremen defense again. Niklas Moisander misjudged himself, and the advanced Mukiele gave Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka no chance.
Werder got up again and finally increased the pace, but Leipzig remained far more dangerous, which had a lot of space on the counterattacks. Nagelsmann spared his regular staff in the following years and took Klostermann and Laimer out of the game. Second-tier players like Ethan Ampadu and Amadou Haidara were given probation opportunities, but the changes didn’t have much of an impact on the game.
Bremen remained too timid and harmless and has to improve significantly to keep the class.
Leipzig now in Tottenham.
Bremen will now play next Saturday (February 22nd, 2020) against Borussia Dortmund. After the Champions League match in the Bundesliga, Leipzig will continue with the duel at FC Schalke 04.
