For José Mourinho has begun in the worst way the double comparison with the Leipzig. In the first match valid for the eighth finals of the Champions League, the londoners have in fact lost 1-0 at home and made difficult the challenge of the next 10 of march in Leipzig. Against the rival Nagelsmann, defined by all the ‘Mini-Mourinho’, the spaniard has in fact suffered from the very beginning the personalities of the germans, and failed to equalise the goal scored by Werner at the beginning of the recovery.
The Leipzig dominated the first half
After having toyed with the idea of winning the Cup in the last edition, and after you have closed on the second place in the group this year, behind Bayern Munich, Spurs seek passage to the quarter-final against the revelation Leipzig. The Tottenham hotspur Stadium in London, however, the germans to shoot better from the blocks and immediately put down to Mourinho with a conclusion outside of the former roma Schick, and with an attempt at dangerous of Werner. Without Kane, Sissoko and Son, and with Lucas Moura in attack, the team of Mourinho a hard time building actions important, and should also like to thank the goal post of Lloris, who see in the field a roll of Angelino. The first time you quit after an absolute domination of the germans (close to scoring on other occasions), broken only by two chance of Bergwijn: both defused by Gulacsi.
Werner cold Lloris from eleven metres
After another good intervention for Gulacsi at the start of the recovery, the Leipzig is the well-deserved advantage. The 56esimo Davies out area Laimer, and forcing the race director to indicate the diskette. Beats by Werner, and it is 1-0 for the ‘Bulls Red’. The goal gives wings to the formation of Nagelsmann, which builds immediately the chance to go to a disastrous 2-0 with Schick: botta a sure shot that Lloris is able to repel. Mourinho tries to change something, and insert Lamela and Ndombele for Alli and Gedson Fernandes: a desperation move that generates immediately a free kick on The Celso that Gulacsi deflects it on the post and a final siege, in which the Spurs are unable to find the goal and avoid defeat.
