Early gate for RB Leipzig, then nothing for a long time
And the followers, among which some Hans fans had mixed, were pampered on the grandstand.
Lukas Klostermann flanked from the right side on the long post. There Paulsen was completely free and suddenly headed. It should remain one of the few warming scenes of the first half. Leipzig completely took out the pace, Hans was primarily concerned with the defense work anyway.
It was dangerous only if Christopher Skunk was involved. A free kick of the top scorer landed at Will Orbán (28th), the shot of the defense chief on the outer post. Then it made Skunk (39.) times himself. His shot out of turn clapped against the latte. Hansa-Keeper Markus Role would have been changeless. His Leipzig er colleague Peter Gulags was completely busy, thus pleased at least his after Club-Data 250. Compulsory mandatory performance for Leipzig.
Hans coach Jens Cartel had emphasized before the game that the league has priority and rotated accordingly. Top Goal John Heroes was not at all. But at the break of only 0: 1, the former RB youth coach obviously weathered a chance. In Bentley Baxter Railway and Nico Reinhardt came two family forces, to bring Cartel Ryan Malone into play. Tesco switched to high quality level, brought striker André Silva for Paulsen.
a little more momentum on both sides
After all, a little more momentum came on both sides. Klostermann (47th) set a shot of 20 meters just next to the gate and Hans sent two signs of life. First, Street Mamba (49.) met the external network after a counterattack, then a shot of Reinhardt (51.) hissed just on the long post.
Afterwards, however, the game lost again at pace, which was mainly due to the stress slow starting game of RB. Silva (60th) could have headed the second gate, but Role was on the spot. Hans tried it one or the other time with counterattacks, but often failed on its own quality.
The game was finally used when Elmo met with a dry shot upon presentation of Skunk to 2: 0.
