In the absence of the magical duo Neymar / Kylian Mbappé, RB returned to favor at Paris St. Germain and headed for the premier league knockout round. The Leipziger won the remake of the semi-finals of the previous season against the French champions in the series 2-1 (1: 1).
“That was an important win for us”
“We are very happy that we got the three. We were a bit vulnerable at the back, we have to stop,” said Marcel Sabitzer at DAZN. Goalscorer Emil Forsberg added: “That was an important win for us, we deserved to win. We really wanted to win – and it showed on the field.”
Angel Di Maria scored the opening goal for PSG in the sixth minute, which Dayot Upamecano had started with a chilling back pass.
Just ten minutes later, the brash head of Leipzig defended a hand penalty, which Peter Gulacsi parried against Di Maria. Christopher Nkunku (42nd) and Forsberg (57th / penalty) turned the game in Leipzig’s favor. PSG professional Idrissa Gueye saw the yellow-red card in the 69th minute after repeated foul play, as did Presnel Kimpembe (90 + 3).
