Klopps peat festival bursts Hoffenheim dream
Liverpool – TSG Hoffenheim misses out on their entry into the Champions League group stage. At FC Liverpool, the guests are inferior from the beginning. Failed and humiliated: TSG debutant TG Hoffenheim who lost his European Cup debut in the attack on Anfield, lost the TSG 2:4 (1:3) in the playoff return to the Champions League at FC Liverpool – the first victory of a German team at Merseyside was never within reach. Sandro Wagner, too, put his finger in the wound after the frustrating 90 minutes:”We had set ourselves a lot of plans and slept for the first 20 minutes. That’s inexplicable. We didn’t stick to the plan in the first half,”said the striker on ZDF. And he continues:”Today we were just full of crap in the collective. In the first half we didn’t stick to the plan at all,” said keeper Oliver Baumann:”I don’t have the words. We were a bit too slow in the head and didn’t win enough duels,”he said,” The first leg of the Bundesliga team, who missed their way into the multi-million-euro group stage, had already lost 2-1 to team manager Jürgen Klopp’s side, and the strong German international Emre Can with a double pack of 10. ), Mohamed Salah (18th) and the ex-Hoffenheim Roberto Firmino (63th), who made it to the group stage for the first time in three years, were also able to make it into the group stage in the 15th century. The goals of Mark Uth (28.) and Sandro Wagner (79.) didn’t change anything about that, as all results at a glance: Hoffenheim is the fifth Bundesliga team (out of 23) to be eliminated in the playoffs and has to compete in the Europa League. The English, on the other hand, are now in the Champions League with five clubs. The TSG has now received the 12.7 million euros of top class money, and the financial difference between the Champions League and the Europa League amounts to at least 15 million euros (LIVETICKER for reading). 54,000 spectators in the legendary Liverpool stadium already saw the 4th round of the TSG. In the second minute, the hosts’ first great opportunity. Sadio Mané, strong as an ox, failed to make it to TSG goalkeeper Oliver Baumann. The Hoffenheimers were hardly able to free themselves from the pressure of the English in the initial phase. The result was the Can lead, whose shot was deflected by 1899 captain Kevin Vogt, and even after the backfire, the guests were unable to give up their nervousness. Liverpool dominated almost at will, with Salah and Can’s further goals expressing their superiority, Nagsmann responded to the demonstration by taking Uth to the overtaxed Havard Nordtveit and killing Uth from a three-member to a four-man backlash, all of which initially took action. Three minutes after a great opportunity through Kerem Demirbay (25th) Uth. In the 54th floor. Georginio Wijnaldum would have been able to expand the leadership. Von Hoffenheim was not on the offensive, Firmino continued to humiliate his former club with his goal. Can was replaced in his 70th birthday. I said goodbye to the second minute with a lot of applause. Wagner made the result at least more friendly.
