Just a gift to Mahrez.
Until the 27th minute, RB Leipzig and City were not surprised: the hosts met with a low block and relied on counterattacks, while the guests had the ball and were looking for a moment in the positional ones. True, nothing really dangerous happened.
And then a mistake changed everything. And extraordinary beauty.
Leipzig tried to launch an attack, but it constantly choked, and the ball came back. Schlager received it from the keeper in the support zone and made a cross pass to his partner, but crookedly – Grealish picked it up and rushed to Blasviha’s goal.
I saw Marez running and laid him on the move. True, Gundogan has already opened in the same zone. He was with his back to the goal, behind guarded by a defender.
It seemed even a bit of an impasse, but Ilkay elegantly got out. Realizing that Mahrez, who was facing the goal, could jump out one on one, Gundogan contrived and pushed the ball further with his heel. Riyad really was right in front of the keeper.
Further – simply: a clear kick into the corner. 1:0.
The ideal solution. It’s true?
Only to keep the victory of “City” failed. In the second half, RB Leipzig bounced back thanks to a goal by Joschka Guardiola.
