RB Leipzig - Biggest surprise so far
Julian Nagelsmann did a miracle with Red Bull Leipzig.
The team that once played in the 4th rank of the German league is now in the semifinals where they will play against PSG. The Leipzig team did not invest much money in players. They were looking for young players who could become stars and so make money on them.
After the game, Naglesmann gave his impressions “It was a good game for my squad and I am very happy. In the end, I think we were a bit better in the final third and that was the difference, "Nagelsmann told BT Sport "We did not create many chances but Atletico also did not create many chances and in the end, I think we were a bit more dangerous around the opponent's goal and I think it is good we are in the semi-finals.
“It is good emotions for the club and the team, I am very proud of my team, they did very well. This club and this team has developed very fast, faster than usual, but as a manager, you have to look forward and prepare for the next game and prepare for the next opponent."
PSG finally wants to win the Champions League title they have been waiting for so long. Previous times they were unlucky. Barcelona and United scored goals in the last minutes and knocked out PSG “We will not have much time to celebrate this victory but perhaps we will drink a beer together in the hotel and then tomorrow we focus on PSG,” Nagelsmann added.
"We have to be very fast in the defense line and we will have to defend very well as there are a lot of stars in this PSG team and it will not be very easy but we try to go to the final." Simeone did not succeed in what he wanted.
The Leipzig players were faster, they had more will to win. Simeone's team did not play the way they can. They focused on defense and did not go forward. "We gave it everything we had. It was difficult for us to win the duels and they were faster, ”Simeone said, in quotes reported by the UEFA website.
"It has been a long year and there was pressure coming back to the Champions League." "We haven't been able to play the way we wanted. I liked (Leipzig's) great enthusiasm and freshness. " "There are no excuses.
We gave our best and made it to the quarter-finals. We are going out fairly and we have to congratulate our opponents. "
