Eder Alvarez im Kampf um den Ball gegen Yussuf Poulsen und Konrad Laimer.

Leipzig. Hertha did not have another gala appearance after the 6-0 win over BSC. R.P. Leipzig suffered their second defeat in their second Champions League game against Club Bruges on Tuesday evening. It was 1: 2 (1: 2) after 90 minutes at the Red Bull Arena. At the start of the home in first class, the start of the home page was fantastic, but then in front of 23,500 spectators the defense was reduced to home defending defeats and offensive action. The Saxons are still bottom of Group A with zero points. Winter is more questionable than ever in the European competition, one of Leipzig’s seasonal goals. Let’s be “only” in the Europa League.


With Josco Guardiol (hitting only on the bench) and Angelino (yellow-red suspension) missing in defense, coach Jesse Marsh switched from three-man back-to-back four, which was successful against Hertha BS. An unwanted decision – and not a good one. Because even though Christopher Kung (5th) started a dream with a goal, the problems related to this defensive formation that often occur this season made themselves painfully noticeable.

LVZ Chief Correspondent Guido Schoffer gives these scores to RB Leipzig experts after the match against Club Bruges:


Keeper Peter Gulasi was forced to perform three significant rescue operations in a short period of time. Bruges captain Hans Vanagen (24th) in a 1-1 draw, however, had nothing to order for him. Referee Slavko Vinczyk had initially decided offside. However, VAR was successful. After the draw, the home side’s defensive problems increased as they lost speed and accuracy in the early stages of the game. The right, especially with Nordi Muqeel and Mohammad Simkan, became a source of uncertainty. It was the fault of the French that made it possible for the Belgians to score the second goal through Mats Ritz (41st). Bruges turned the match around before the break.
