The RB (Leipzig) broke Schalke 04`s dreams of sensation
If during the winter break Schalke 04 players had some hopes to dethrone Bayern (Munich), they have already vanished, because tonight the kings have bowed their heads to the Leipzig 1:3. In addition, the hosts displaced their rivals from second place, and after this round the champions increased their lead to the top of 13 points. Miners from Gelsenkirchen have not lost since September in all tournaments, but this has now denied them the title battle. The first match of the two teams in 2018 was also of interest in whether it would be the last for Nani Keita with the red bulls team. It seems that it will not be because, according to the management, the midfielder will join Liverpool at the end of the championship.
The African showed his strong qualities by scoring a 1-0 goal in the 41st minute, even though he took advantage of a ricochet in Naldo`s body. Three minutes earlier, Schalke 04 goalkeeper Ralph Feerman saved a penalty shot by Jean-Kevin Augustin.
At the start of the second half, the Bundesliga`s best goalie for the autumn was lucky to stop the ball in his crossbar. Nadoli was able to compensate with a 55-minute equalizer, and that was supposed to give the guests the necessary push to turn. But this did not happen, but it did not happen. National Timo Werner, who started on the bench for a viral illness in recent days, appeared in the game in the 63rd minute and six later rebounded the lead of the hosts - 2:1.
After just two minutes, Bruno brought things up to 3:1 and Domenico Tedesco`s team was already broken. The Feltins Arena did not help even the entry as a debut of Juventus-taken Marco Piaza. In the meantime, Nabi Keita had left the field because he was officially warned and his drive was hung. Anyway, he will not play in the next match from record of soccer predictions against Freiburg because he has accumulated five yellow cards.
