It’s your own fault!
Leipzig lost 3: 6 to the star ensemble of Manchester City – and defeated themselves single-handedly. Because the RB defensive caught a pitch-black day.
Nathan Aké can use the first city corner in the 16th minute from six meters because Willi Orban and Nordi Mukiele simply do not run – 1-0.
Even with the second goal Mukiele is the unlucky fellow. The new national player of France heads into his own goal when trying to clear a cross from Kevin De Bruyne.
Mukiele of all people! The right-back brought the runner-up on the first day of play in Mainz (0: 1) to loser street after he hit an arc lamp in his own penalty area, which led to the goal.
From then on, the game follows a pattern: Leipzig scored three goals through Christopher Nkunku (42nd / 51st / 73rd), but was immediately punished by the English champions.
Riyad Mahrez scores with a penalty (45th + 2) after Lukas Klostermann had played the ball with his hand. The next defensive ram!
Jack Grealish, who took advantage of Tyler Adams’ bad offside trap, increased it to 4: 2 with a flick (56th). The 5: 3 – after another Nkunku hit – achieved João Cancelo by long shot.
Conceded flood – and then also a dismissal: Angeliño flies in the 79th minute with yellow-red from the square.
Outnumbered Man City increased by Gabriel Jesus in the 85th minute to 6: 3.
Nine goals – there were only three more hits in a game in the Champions League. Record: BVB – Legia Warsaw 8: 4 (twelve goals / 2016).
While it is the fourth bankruptcy of the last five games for RB, Manchester continues its streak. Pep Guardiola’s (50) team have won the last nine games against Bundesliga clubs. The last defeat was around seven years ago at Bayern. At that time coach of Munich: Guardiola.
