RB coach Dominico Tedesco had to change his staffing plans short notice. Danny Omo stayed home with the common cold. Emil Forsberg started for him. Lucas Closterman reported minor muscle problems after warming up. So Josco Guardiola, who was really only aiming at the bank, switched to the opening XI. Mohamed Simahan shifted the defense from left to right. The focus was also on security. This is because when the clover leaves first strike, they deceive themselves with a pass in depth. Jamie Leweling thanked – 0: 1. Only four minutes played. Leipzig shook himself briefly and then unpacked the proven program, which quickly became dangerous, especially on the left. Angelino was in a lateral mood. One of them landed slowly on Andre Silva’s head a quarter of an hour later – equalizer. RB took control now, but the home side were dangerous. Two long-range shots by Pranimir Harkota and Paul Seguin did not go into the goal. The Tedesco team is completely different. Changed the result to 4: 1 until the break. Forsberg, Conrad Lymer and Benjamin Henriques scored.

By the start, Leipzig had slowed down a bit, but was definitely the dominant team. Sometimes there was no accuracy and speed, but there were still opportunities, for example in static situations. After a free kick from Forceberg, Simagan was also allowed to enter the scoreboard for RB for the first time (59th). After 5: 1, Tedesco made two changes, bringing in Dominique Sophoslay for Amado Hydra and Marcel Holstenberg for Guardiola. For the Defender this is the Bundesliga debut this season. He almost crowned it with a goal. But the header, scored by Angelino from a corner, was scraped off the line by first-keeper Andreas Linde with his foot. When Christopher Nkungu (69th) took the lead 6-1 – Forsberg served well for the French team – the goalkeeper was weak. Leipzig now overcame the lead, slowed the pace significantly and gave SpVgg a little ball. That did not change the decision.
