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

Alarm from the police: The title hunters from RB Leipzig were thrown out of the Champions League places at the beginning of the hoped-for merry month of 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 is only number five with two games left.

Breel Embolo (17th) and Jonas Hofmann scored twice (45th + 2/77.) For Borussia and spoiled the mood of the Saxons before the showdown to the Europa League final on Thursday in Glasgow Rangers. Coach Domenico Tedesco’s team, which also has the cup final in front of its chest, only managed to equalize temporarily thanks to Christopher Nkunku’s 18th season goal (36th) and had to let SC Freiburg pass them in the table. The majority of the guests after the red card against Nico Elvedi (64th) did not help either.

Tedesco did not want to apologize for his team’s poor performance with the guests’ demanding program. “It would be too easy,” the coach said on the DAZN microphone: “In the first half, we played completely disembodied, so you can throw the tactical board in the bin.” 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.”

On the Gladbach side, the home win raised hopes of at least a conciliatory end to the season: “If we had played like this before, we would definitely have had a few more points on the account,” summed up match winner Hofmann, and his once again strong goalkeeper Yann Sommer was happy for one “important triangle for morality”.
