Munich on course for quarter-finals – Adler patzen
Master Red Bull Munich wins his first round of the last sixteen at the Swiss Championships in CHL. The Mannheim eagles, on the other hand, are losing in their domestic arena.
The German champion Red Bull Munich is about to enter the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time.
Coach Don Jackson’s team won the first round of the last sixteen at the Swiss champions SC Bern 3-2 (0-1,2-1,1-0). Liga rival Adler Mannheim, on the other hand, was defeated by Swedish runner-up Brynäs IF in their own hall 2:3 (0:1,1:2,1:0).
Never before has a German team reached the quarter-finals of the royal class. The second leg will take place on 7 March. The team with the better overall result from both games will reach the next round. Runner-up Grizzly’s Wolfsburg had already failed in the group stage.
Maximilian Kastner scored the acclaimed victory goal for Munich shortly before the end (59th). Keith Aucoin (22nd) and Andreas Eder (24th) had previously met for RB, Andrew Ebbett (14th) and Justin Krueger (27th) had been successful for Bern. The second leg shows SPORT1 LIVE starting at 19.25 pm on free-TV.
In Mannheim, international player Matthias Plachta (35th/58th) let the eagle fans with his goals still have a little hope. Daniel Paille (15th), Adam Hirsch (30th) and Jesper Jensen (36th) were successful for the guests. The return leg will be shown at SPORT1+ and in the LIVESTREAM from 18:25.
