It was a little chilly in Leipzig, but Emil Forsberg hopped around, still in short pants. Here, in front of a camera, there in front of a microphone, Leipzig Swede allowed himself to be willingly in the evening. "This has been fun," said Forsberg, and told of the difficult weeks before, of injury to the adductor muscles and at the bar, probably the same, but who wanted to be a stickler to this remarkable Performance of the blond artist out of Västernorrland values. Emil Forsberg was the superior player, a superior in Leipzig, team, scorer of the first goal, and threader. Why is RB in this year at home are not always so well played? 0:1 against Dortmund, 0:0 against Frankfurt, 1:1 against Hoffenheim 0:0 against Augsburg – this series did not necessarily courage. Forsberg has thinks for a moment and replied, "Oh, was today was a different opponent!"
The sound pejorative, as it was probably meant to. Yes, Hertha BSC had not presented at the 0:5 on a Saturday night like a team, fight with all your might to be your last Chance to participate in the European business. Forsberg wanted to bring only expressed that he and his colleagues had to do it at home, finally back with an opponent, the football does not stop, but wanted to play. The Berliners had pushed their defence seductive far in front of the direction of the center line. With the result that the audience is not solid masonry saw, but an attractive game of football. Nothing in the counter strong and fast, Leipzig striker Timo Werner, and Yussuf love Poulsen more than the in front of you in the deep open spaces.
Dane Poulsen raved about "our best game of the entire season", what he was not three goals entirely blameless. The midfielder Kevin Kampl was the demonstration of power of the table-third of the short formula: Super-scoring chances, Super gates, Super-day. He could have been a Super-Sweden, with a Super Overview of the Super-Comeback mention. Emil Forsberg you had in Leipzig a little in doubt whether it would be with a return to the turf. Coach Ralf Rangnick had looked after a replacement. But first of all, the AC Milan asked for reportedly 20 million euros for the former Leverkusen's Hakan Calhanoglu, and secondly, it went in the since October, suffering Forsberg is on the up again.
Slowly he groped his way to the Bundesliga, hesitant and unobtrusive in the first few Games. In the Swedish national team, he prepared a week ago at 2:1 against Romania, scoring both goals, was replaced, and traveled in front of the subsequent duel with Norway in advance. The provoked in the past few days in Leipzig, all kinds of speculation, which exchange the may be again broken injury or a falling out with national coach Janne Andersson. All nonsense, said Forsberg on Saturday, "the media have made the topic more, as it really was", and that was to say.
"a gala performance"
as well as against Hertha he has anyway long ceased to be played. "It was a gala performance", it was Rangnick and, above all, Forsbergs contribute to Poulsens celebrated the second goal for the interim 3:0. When Forsberg claimed the Ball in the tribulation against Niklas Stark and Arne Maier, the head lifted, Poulsen spotted and these so skilfully brought into play the subsequent shot on goal was only a matter of form. "World class!", Rangnick said.More about
