first_imgRB Leipzig achieved a very prestigious victory by defeating (0-1) Tottenham, current runner-up in Europe, in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 thanks to a goal by Timo Werner from the penalty spot, although the Germans deserved better luck and have achieved a wider income.The team led by the young Julian Nagelsmann, revelation in the Bundesliga last and second season today, was absolute dominator of the match and put the ropes against the London team, especially in the first half. Between Schick and scorer Werner, the defense of the ‘Spurs’ did not live his best night and ended up blushing.At the first minute the Leipzig warned with a shot that ended at the base of the post and at the quarter of an hour came the second attempt with another throw that touched the stick. The intentions were clear from the beginning before the conformism and helplessness of the locals, who again missed their two best players: Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Nagelsmann’s people despaired of the Spurs throughout the matchThe German, on penalty, put the only goal in one way that could be decisive Photo: Reuterscenter_img The Germans, with less possession of the ball in the second round, were more practical and evidenced the multitude of defensive problems of the Mourinho team. Werner had a great time in the Tottenham area and ended up finding the prize when game time was around. On this occasion, his partner Laimer was the great protagonist.Davies pounced on him and ended up overwhelming the Leipzig player. The referee did not hesitate and pointed out the penalty point. Werner was right and the ‘Spurs’ reacted quickly. His best argument was the former Betis, Lo Celso, who led the list of occasions with two shots from the front and a foul that stopped Gulacsi with mastery.This logical reaction of the Londoners came while Leipzig did not finish hitting the key to crush his rival and achieve what would have been an almost definitive result. Schick forgave the second with a shot in the heart of the area and Poulsen could have nailed the stake to his opponent if he had been faster in the prolongation time.The second of the Germans did not arrive, but neither did the Tottenham tie, which has greatly complicated their survival in the best competition in the world. The English will have to turn Germany upside down if they want to repeat, at least, their performance in the ‘Champions’ last year.DATA SHEET– OUTCOME: Tottenham 0-1 Leipzig (Werner 58 ‘p.)–TOTTENHAM: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Gedson (Ndombele 64 ‘), Lo Celso, Dele Alii (Lamela 64’), Bergwijn and Lucas Moura.–LEIPZIG: Gulacsi, Mukiele, Klostermann, Halstenberg, Angeliño, Sabitzer, Laimer (Forsberg 83 ‘), Ampadu, Nkunku (Haidara 64’), Schick (Poulsen 77 ‘) and Werner.–REFEREE: Cüneyt Çakir.

first_imgMiguel Cifuentes ‘Cifu’ returns to the starting point. The brave side of Malaga has been again evicted from the comfort zone and is again forced to row against the current. The appearance of Ismael Casas and the confidence of Sergio Pellicer in the youth squad have relegated him to the substitution, role that did not play for more than a year and a half.But the current situation is not a new one for Granada. Since arriving in Malaga in January 2016, there have been many times when he has not been among the preferences of the different blue and white coaches. In fact, he had to go out in search of minutes to Girona six months after his signing (summer 2016) and in January 2018 he left, also on loan, to Albacete.After relegation to the Second Division and due to the problems the club encountered in restructuring the team, given the high number of high chips in the squad Muñiz ended up betting on him as the team’s first right-back and Cifu responded showing good performance. He had an injury that had him six games out of combat and some ups and downs that promptly brought him to the bench for the benefit of Iván Rodríguez. But ended up playing 25 games and earning his contract renewal until June 30, 2022. This season, with Iván Rodríguez not registered due to the club’s problems with the salary limit, he remained the only right-back of the first team and started again with the indisputable vitola. But after Pellicer’s arrival his status as a holder has been questioned. Some physical problems separated him from Málaga – Numancia on February 9 and the young Ismael Casas took advantage of it to keep the position.In the last five games, Cifu only played the second half in Las Palmas. The rest of the minutes were for Ismael Casas, whom Pellicer knows perfectly from his time in the subsidiary. The coach has high hopes for the youth squad, which at the moment is more than complying. Cifu, once again, has to reinvent himself and overcome the role of substitute.last_img read more
