For the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim it is even harder to reach the Champions League. The team of coach Juliana Nagelsman struggled yesterday at Olympique Lyon after losing 0-2 on the break, although it was 2: 2 and for the moment prevented. Hoffenheim, but now after the fourth joint competition in the group without a win, they are now winning against Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City, and I hope that he will be the French winner. World champions Nabil Fekir (19) and Tanguy Ndombelé (28) met Lyon, Andrej Kramaric (65) and Pavel Kaderabek (90 + 2) for the Bundesliga club.
The Phase Appearance and the catch-all race gave Hoffenheim 2: 2 in front of 53,850 spectators, and TSG has yet to wait for the first victory in the first class. "If you are 0: 2, you have no other choice, because you have to go full of gas," said Ermin Bicakcic. "It was a great fight from us." After a yellow red card for Kasim Adams (51), Hoffenheim had to play a lot more than a number, but he fought back. Captain Kevin Vogt saw the "great morale" of his team: "When we come here with ten men, I'm proud of the body."
Hoffenheimers played from the start bravely forward and were clearly better at the initial stage. Lyon acted with restraint and with great respect. The French strong attack on world champion Fekir, who missed the first leg injury and Memphis Depay, initially started dangerous. Especially on the left with international players Nico Schulz and Kramaric Hoffenheim was dangerous again and again. A good start-up phase could not have been used by ZTP, but on the contrary: after 20 minutes, Ferland Mendy's distance was cut off on the inside and the other goalkeeper Oliver Baumann could still play. But Fekir was the fourth attempt and called the ball over the line.
Failure was felt by TSG, but it was well achieved. Ishak Belfodil (24) and Schulz had a chance to shoot 1: 1 after three minutes later. But for the Bundesliga, the seventh worsened: Natobelé was completely free in the last game, defending head Kevin Vogt scored a goal from the goal.
The French are increasingly starting to play a quick game. In particular, Hoffenheim's right-hand defender Adams had problems. The ZTP Chamber again turned out to be outrageous at the European highest level. The low hopes of the guests at the point victory fell six minutes after the break. Adams again had problems with fast Fekir and saw a yellow-red card after the next offense. The second free kick by Jason Denayer was Hoffenheim's next free kick.
When it seemed that the guests almost gave up, the first hit fell. Keeper Anthony Lopes was unable to hit the left corner after a strong ball from Schulz to Kramaric. And Hoffenheim continued to renumber and was rewarded: at the time of injury, Kaderabek followed Kramaric with a ball, which was still missed by 2-2 equalization.
Manchester United misses the game
Manchester United has returned to Juventus and has good opportunities to reach knockout stages in the Champions League. Juan Mata equalized in 2: 1 (0: 0) on Wednesday night, for Cristiano Ronaldo 65 in Juve in 86 minutes before the English team reached Torino Alex Sandra (90). The table combines two points for leading Juve in second place. In third place for Man United is Valencia CF, who won 3-1 (2: 1) at Young Boys Bern.
Opponents of the Hoffenheim Manchester City team won a 6-0 (2-0) victory over Shakhtar Donetsk. David Silva was in the lead by Pep Guardiola (13). Gabriel Jesus (24/72 penalty / 90 + 2), Raheem Sterling (49) and Riyad Mahrez (84) achieved other goals for Citizens.
In group G they are popular with the competition so slow. Real Madrid and AS Roma are now every 9 points and five points from ZSKA Moscow in third place after wins. Karim Benzema (21st place, 37th place), Casemiro (23rd place), Gareth Bale (40th place) and national player Toni Kroos (67th) reached 5-0 (4-0) Real in Vikoryi Pilsen. Rome had previously won 2-1 (1-0) in Moscow.
