Champions League – group stage
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
spring 2011 the former team of the famous German specialist Ralf
Rangnick had reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. We are
speaking now about Schalke.
Rangnick was heading the middle level team from the second German
Bundesliga Leipzig and very soon the team began to belong to the
elite of the German football. And according to the results of the
first season in Bundesliga the debutant became the vice-champion of
Germany. But, to tell the truth, this triumph the coach-winner was
celebrating being the sport director of the club
Germany (the head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl)
team of Ralf Rangnick and Ralph Hasenhüttlthis season is not going
to stop. In three last rounds the red and whites have won twice over
Freiburg (4:1) and Hamburg (2:0) and is now in the group of leaders
with 6 points. During the last calendar match in Hamburg two best
players of Leipzig – holding midfielder Naby Keïta and center
forward Timo Werner impressed the audience.
(the head coach Leonardo Jardim)
the nearest rival of Leipzig – the defending champion of France –
has greatly disappointed its fans in the last round. As the team had
lost to the hosts of Allianz Riviera 4:0.
bearing in mind all squad losses that the team of Leonardo Jardim has
survived during the last summer shoulder-season, all were surprised
as the champion has gained 12 points in previous four rounds.
now very interesting fact! When Monaco had lost in Nice the
bookmakers quotations started to “swim” slowly to the
vice-champion of Germany. It is hard to believe in the possible
victory of the champion of France on Red Bull Arena. Here the most
actual is the bet on hosts don’t lose.
