This Wednesday (6), the German team had some good opportunities to score, but Openda’s poor aim and Lunin’s good defenses prevented them from scoring. At 20 minutes into the second half, in a good match with Bellingham, Vinicius Junior opened the scoring.

Three minutes later, Orbán equalized with a header from Raum’s cross. In stoppage time, Dani Olmo hit the crossbar with a cover shot, but Leipzig were unable to avoid elimination.
