RB Leipzig – ManUnited – 3: 2! 80 minutes gala, 10 minutes trembling

Leipzig trembles into the last 16 of the Champions League, defeated Manchester United 3-2!

With the victory, RB secures progress in the mega-difficult Group H with PSG and the English. Whether as a group winner will only be final when the game between PSG and Basaksehir has been rated.

It was a gala appearance for over 80 minutes by coach Julian Nagelsmann’s team. But the last 10 minutes had to be shaky – Manchester is suddenly wide awake with two goals and is putting pressure on.

Coach Julian Nagelsmann (33): “We are further. The boys are machines, they fought. I am very happy and satisfied. I was just splashed with water in the dressing room by the players. A little partying is also okay. “

Leipzig’s start is furious. After one minute and 50 seconds, Leipzig’s goal angel Angelino (23) hits after Sabitzer flank – 1-0.

The Spaniard is Leipzig’s top scorer with seven goals this season. And that as a defender.

Eleven minutes later, it’s Angelino again who lets the Saxons cheer. This time as a preparer with a precise flank.

Amadou Haidara (22) thanks and hits volley for 2-0.

Spicy: Leipzig hero Angelino is still under contract with United’s arch-rival Manchester City.

But the Bundesliga team has a purchase option for 18 million euros. Money well spent. And: Leipzig already collects 12.2 million for getting ahead.

Angelino on Sky: “It was really hard. But it feels so good. We showed a strong mentality. I hit the ball perfectly and I am overjoyed with my goal. “

Sports director Markus Krösche (40): “Angel is currently playing incredibly well and is extremely important to us. He has undergone extreme development in the past few months and scores many important goals for us with his strong finish. “

Angelino also started the 3-0 with a cross in the 69th minute. Goalscorer: Justin Kluivert (21).

What about Manchester? The English record champions leave their 5-0 form from the first leg on the island and miss the first half completely. The Red Devils only wake up after a flattering penalty from Fernandes (80th). Konaté is said to have previously fouled Greenwood.

Two minutes later, Pogba headed it 3-2 (82nd). This hit is also controversial, the French headed his teammate Maguire by the hand.
