3 against Leipzig thanks to Müller

AAs Niklas Süle and Jérôme Boateng ran to the center circle, they were yelled at from behind. It was difficult to understand exactly what Manuel Neuer had to say, but one thing is certain: he did not praise his central defenders. Before that, they had left their goalkeeper alone in the six-yard space with Emil Forsberg from Leipzig. When the ball landed on his head, Boateng was too far in front and Süle too far back. Neuer couldn’t do anything anymore – except to be angry. For the third time he had to get the ball out of his goal that evening. And it was only 48 minutes over.

On Saturday evening, Bayern Munich received three goals from RB in their own stadium, but still not lost. It was an exciting and fast-paced top Bundesliga game that ended with the result it deserved: 3: 3. “It was a real top game with two teams that really wanted to win. It was great to be able to stand on the pitch. You live for games like this, ”said
Forsberg at Sky. And yet the Leipzig challengers were allowed to be a little annoyed afterwards. When Forsberg headed the ball into the goal, they led 3-2. They could have won – and that wasn’t exactly to be expected.

For more than a year there has actually not been a good time to play against the Hansi-Flick-Bayern, they just never give up, but the Leipzigers have caught a particularly unfavorable one in their opinion. Last Wednesday they had to win against Basaksehir Istanbul in the Champions League (and only make it in the 92nd minute). They have to repeat that against Manchester United next Tuesday.

“If we want to advance in the Champions League, we have to win,” said her coach Julian Nagelsmann before the game. “If we don’t win against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, we have a few more games to go to achieve our goals.” Afterwards, Nagelsmann spoke of a “thrilling game” and added, with a view to the game against Manchester: “ It’s about the round of 16 in the Champions League. It is therefore worthwhile to fool everything. “
