RB Leipzig clearly wins against Teutonia Ottensen
Dhe commitment of the new sports director Max Eberl stalled, but in the DFB Cup, RB Leipzig, led by Timo Werner, easily made it into the second round. As expected, the defending champion defeated the fourth division club Teutonia Ottensen 8-0 (4-0) on Tuesday.
Met in front of 13,084 fans at the Leipzig Stadium Werner (19th minute/20th/43rd), André Silva (41st/53rd), Emil Forsberg (56th), Christopher Nkunku (77th) and Dani Olmo (90th). But the dominant issue was once again Eberl’s desired commitment. And it becomes more specific.
obligation of Eberl
RB managing director Oliver Mintzlaff confirmed on Tuesday, already at Eberl’s club Borussia Monchengladbach to have approached. “Yes, we are interested in Max Eberl and yes, we have had initial talks. On the other hand, what is reported completely incorrectly is that there is already an agreement and a starting date. Of course we informed Gladbach about our interest, nothing more and nothing less has happened so far,” said the 47-year-old of the “image”.
Gladbach announced that the talks had so far been “unproductive”. Eberl’s contract is suspended, but the manager is tied to the traditional club from the Lower Rhine until 2026.
Second Leipzig series
It can almost be ruled out that Eberl will then fail in Leipzig’s second cup game on 18/19. October already has the sporting say. Mintzlaff would like this, but according to media reports, Eberl is more likely to start around the turn of the year. First of all, an agreement has to be reached with Gladbach about a fee.
If Eberl watched the game against Ottensen on TV, he mainly saw the second row in the Leipzig team. Trainer Domenico Tedesco made six changes to the starting XI compared to the first win of the season against Wolfsburg.
That didn’t inhibit the flow of the game, but Ottensen was simply too inferior. Silvas (8.) A header against the post was still a warning, then Werner basically made the decision with two goals within a minute. The national striker also prepared Silva’s third goal before he scored the break himself.
After the change, Silva raised, then scored forsberg by heel – before Tedesco made four changes and switched from a three-man to a four-man defense. Leipzig got bogged down a little too often in the beautiful game, substitute Nkunku scored after a long period without a real chance before Olmo was also successful.
