Borussia Mönchengladbach – RB Leipzig 3: 1: bankruptcy with decimated foals! RBL flies out of the CL ranks

Cops alarm: Title hunters RB Leipzig were kicked out of the Champions League places at the start of the hoped-for happy May in the Bundesliga. The team coached by Domenico Tedesco lost 1:3 (1:2) to Borussia Mönchengladbach after a poor performance for a long time and are only fifth with two games to play.

Breel Embolo (17th) and Jonas Hofmann twice (45th + 2/77th) scored for Borussia and spoiled the mood for the Saxons before the showdown for the Europa League final on Thursday at Glasgow Rangers. Coach Domenico Tedesco’s team, who also have the cup final in front of their chests, only managed to equalize temporarily thanks to Christopher Nkunku’s 18th goal of the season (36th) and had to leave SC Freiburg the exceed in the table. The majority of guests after the red card against Nico Elvedi (64th) didn’t help either.

Tedesco would not excuse his team’s poor performance with the demanding guest schedule. “It would be too easy,” the coach told DAZN on the microphone: “In the first half, we played completely disembodied, so you can throw the tactical board in the trash.” Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulasci was also annoyed by his colleagues’ ‘sloppy play’ before the break: “We have an important goal in three days, but we have big goals and we need points for that.”

As for Gladbach, the home victory fueled hopes for an at least conciliatory end to the season: “If we had played like this before, we would certainly have had a few more points on the account”, summed up the winner of the Hofmann match, and his once again strong, goalkeeper Yann Sommer was delighted with an “important trio for morale”.
