- Haaland: a giant of 1.94 with ballet tights
- Results Everything about the Champions League
What if this were the year of Germany? The almost always reliable Bayern is accompanied this season by the imperial Haaland Dortmund and also the voracious and daring Leipzig, drawing the best Bundesliga in years and raising his voice to the Spanish-English duality of recent times in the Champions League. To show, the deserved and clear victory of Leipzig this Wednesday against a Tottenham spine and almost always submitted to the wishes of his rival. Much will have to improve in Germany the current runner-up, now trained by Mourinho, to flip the tie. [0-1: Narration and statistics]
The Portuguese coach may be excused in the low capitals due to Kane and Son's injury, but it was not the attack that failed him the most. He lost because he lacked ambition and because Nagelsmann won the tactical battle. There is no trace of the great Tottenham that dazzled the last Champions League, now mutating a smaller team suffering the agony of an exhausted project that calls for a profound renovation. On the contrary that this shameless Leipzig whose only macula, despite beating at home, was not to leave practically sentenced the tie
Four clear shots in the initial minute and a half of the game served as a trailer for a first part of overwhelming superiority of Nagelsmann . He continuously attacked Leipzig with his 10 countrymen beyond the midfield line, crouching a Tottenham who did not even know where they came from. Lo Celso, embedded in a medulla with much more talent than physical, was the only one who, from time to time, managed to get Mourinho's team out of the cave where he lived.
The Leipzig did everything well, except for the only thing that matters in this sport: the goal. In other words, the Tottenham came out unscathed from the bathroom received, largely thanks to Lloris , but also because of the visitors' inability. The German team had to wait for a clear penalty from Davies on Laimer, almost at the time of the game, to finally open the scoring through Werner.
The both tempered the Leipzig, which began to think about the return, and gave certain wings to the Tottenham, improved with the entry of Ndombelé . He wanted (the least!) The London cadre and in that final arreón he did miss the gunpowder he has in the infirmary. Because except for a lack of Lo Celso stopped by Gulácsi (impeccable whenever he had to act, which was not much), the Mourinho team had no options to avoid a bad result that could be much worse. The tie will arrive alive in Leipzig and, seen as seen, it is not negligible comfort for the 'spurs', but it knows very little for a current Champions finalist who in a handful of months has completely broken down.
