RB against Bayern: The miracle of Leipzig


FC Bayern were far superior to their opponent RB Leipzig for much of the match, but in the end both sides drew in a draw. How on earth could that happen?

Scene of the Game: The very last of the whole game. Joshua Kimmich threw a free-kick into the penalty area in the 92nd minute, Niklas Süle hit the ball with his head, somehow RB goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi still had his hand on the ball, who scored the post and whirled into the goal. More symbolism for the Leipzig luck and the Bayern-yield on this evening could not be delivered.

Result of the game: 1: 1. So it was already at break after hits from Robert Lewandowski (3rd minute) and Emil Forsberg (penalty, 45. + 2). Especially as this result could be achieved in the first 45 minutes, the science will continue to occupy for years. The gameplay can be read here.

Bundesliga: The draw in the top game in pictures

The first half: After 70 seconds sent Thomas Müller (yes, who was in the starting XI) Lewandowski on the trip, and did what he can. He made cool the 1: 0. What followed then was the total dominance, 45 minutes probably the best football, there was under Niko Kovac at Bayern. A class difference, and that's not over the top. But when it was just before the break still only 1: 0 and the Bayern was a whistled penalty (rightly) taken away from the video referee, grew a faint idea. The confirmed in the 45th minute: RB got the penalty awarded, Forsberg transformed, half time whistle. The miracle of Leipzig.

The second half: Suddenly RB was actively involved in this strange game, had several chances to score, by Timo Werner with a minute before the end even the chance to win. Then this game would have been placed in the series of the strangest Bayern defeats somewhere behind the final Dahoam and the 99 Champions League final.


Robert Lewandowski, referee Sascha Stegemann

Hand movement of the game: It went like this: You take your hands up, collapses them over your head or buries the face in them. Was very often observed this evening with offensive players of the guests, if again an attack action did not land where it should actually be terminated. Chance exploitation is now a Bayern topic.

Arm movement of the game: extend elbows and thus catch the opponent. Heard is one of the ugliest things in football and was seen on this evening several times. By Lewandowski as well as by RB player Konrad Laimer. Both were allowed to trust the mercy of referee Sascha Stegemann. Since both clubs have the reputation of embodying elbow mentality among those who do not love them, it was all very well.

Duel of the match: Bayern against the expectations. At the transmitting TV broadcaster Sky, they had set their agenda before the kick-off. If Bayern lost, they would be five points behind RB - after four games. Finally Bayern crisis again. Nothing came of it, but hey: Two points behind Leipzig. Now. It can be done from something.


What are you wearing, Julian?

Fall height of the game: RB coach Julian Nagelsmann has been in recent days in public in such laurels have been considered that one had to believe that in RB before him only grassroots work has been done, and only now put the modern football wisdom in the RB empire , Of course it is also a tactical stroke of genius, in spite of complete inferiority to go with a draw in the break. His conversion to the back four at halftime has in any case brought something. There can be no two opinions about just one thing: the checked shirt does not work. This has nothing to do with tactics.

Quotation of the play: "Leipzig defends itself against championship ambitions, which is reasonable after only three game days. With the Bavarians already applies now: championship or nothing." Sky moderator Wolf Fuss summarizes how reporting works.

Realization of the game: Justice has nothing to do with football and a final result. It's such an ancient wisdom, but you can mention it again.
