In the end, Real strikes ice cold |
Leipzig shocked late
Now Marco Rose (46) has caught it.
Four days after the 3-0 coup against Dortmund, Real Madrid lost 2-0. Bitter! Rose conceded his first defeat as a Leipzig coach against the undefeated defending champion.
Rose’s motto before the duel with the record champion (14 titles): “Why should we be afraid?”
Reasons for the new broad chest: The shaky defense (previously conceded 18 goals in eight competitive games) stabilizes Rose with aggressive pressing. The Klopp buddy lets the classic RB system play again with lightning-fast switching. The balls are immediately played steeply on Nkunku, Forsberg or Werner.
Nkunku alone missed the lead three times (5th/30th/34th) by a hair’s breadth. Strong: Gulacsi (71.) saves against Vinicius, who is free in front of him. On the other hand, Gulasci is powerless against Valverde’s 14-metre shot. Asensio (90+2) scores to make it 2-0.
Bad luck: Due to the injury of clearer Laimer (25/Syndesmosband) Rose (“He is a key player”) had to rebuild the winning eleven from the Dortmund game. Haidara started next to Schlager on the double six.
For Rose, the next cracker against an ex-club is in Gladbach on Saturday. Spicy: Leipzig and Gladbach have been negotiating the fee for manager Max Eberl (48) for weeks. The ex-Gladbacher (contract until 2026) will switch to RB.
BILD learned: The parties are as good as in agreement, between 4 and 4.5 million people meet.
