RB Leipzig had a very important 2-1 victory in the Champions League against Paris. The Saxons weren't that present in the first half and could be happy not to be higher. But Nkunku scored at an important time and after the break the hosts turned up.


Di Maria takes advantage of Upamecano's mistakes

The game started perfectly for PSG and miserable for RB: After a mistake by Upamecano, Kean di Maria sent the ball steeply - and the Argentine maneuvered the ball fine past Gulacsi (6th). However, it did not take long for Leipzig to digest this shock, in the eighth minute Haidara missed the huge chance to equalize, he shot guest keeper Navas from a few meters. The better team, however, were the French, who had a huge chance to make it 2-0 after a handball by Upamecano in the penalty area, but Gulacsi saved the penalty from di Maria (16).

he Tuchel-Elf played a good game, was defensively stable and always had actions forward. Only the guests had to be accused of not having made it 2-0. The hits from di Maria (38th) and Kean (40th) were rightly not recognized because of offside. And so it was suddenly 1: 1 because Nkunku hit dry from 16 meters (42nd). RB almost added up, but Olmo aimed a little too high (45th) - so it went 1: 1 into the cabins.

Forsberg ice cold from the point

Leipzig came out of the locker room well and, thanks to Forsberg, also scored the first conclusion (53rd). On the other side, Kean announced the guests offensively for the first time (54th). But the Saxons were now on the trigger - and got a penalty in the 56th minute. Kimpembe took an Angelino cross with his arm, referee Szymon Marciniak initially let go, but after the video images quickly decided on a penalty. Forsberg turned dry, although Navas had guessed the right corner (57.).

So it looked good for the Nagelsmann-Elf, who were outnumbered after the traffic light card against Gueye from the 69th minute. And the hosts played it very cleverly to the end, left nothing defensive against a Paris with no ideas on the offensive. Thus, the Leipziger drove a very important 2-1 victory and drew level with Manchester United in terms of numbers (both six points). PSG, which with Kimpembe had to accept the second dismissal shortly before the end (yellow-red, 90th + 5), stops at three points.
