RB Leipzig, whose colours are defended by Kevin Kampl and Benjamin Šeško, hosted Belgrade’s Crvena Zvezda at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday evening and justified their role as clear favourites. Kevin Kampl had the captain’s armband tied around his arm again, while Benjamin Šeško was on the bench at the start of the game. In the end, the home team won 3:1.
The home team quickly crowned their superiority, scoring 12. In the first minute, home defender David Raum found himself alone on the left side of the penalty area and sent the ball between the legs of visiting goalkeeper Omri Glazer. After less than half an hour of play, the main referee Jose Maria Sanchez pointed to a harsh penalty for the visitors, but changed his decision after being called and watching the video. Before the end of the first half, Kevin Kampl tries a header but misses the target by a wide margin.
The Red Bulls increased their advantage to 59. Xavi Simons sends the ball into the visitors’ net from distance with a right-footed shot in the first minute. A few moments later, Kampl sensed an opportunity, but his shot from distance was defended brilliantly by Glazer. The visitors refused to give up and in 70. In the first minute, they got a goal through Marko Stamenic, who was also lucky to get a shot off, and came close to the score. With just under ten minutes left in regulation, Christoph Baumgartner scored with a slightly inaccurate header after a cross from a corner by Kevin Kampl. V 82. Benjamin Šeško got his chance in the first minute, replacing Lois Opendej. Two minutes after Šeško entered the game, former Dinamo Zagreb player Dani Olmo scored the final goal after a flipper in the penalty area.
