Nations League – League A: Hungary wins in Germany after winning in England and is leader of group 3

Hungary holds its final! This Friday evening, the Hungarians created the feat by winning in Germany (0-1), during the fifth day of League A of the League of Nations. At the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Adam Szalai’s goal was therefore enough (17th). In group 3, the Germans can no longer hope for anything. On the other hand, the Magyars consolidate their place as leader (10 pts). They will play a “final”, against Italy (2nd, 8 pts), Monday from 8:45 p.m., to validate their place for the Final Four.

Hungary has already almost validated its ticket for the last four in this meeting. This was the case until the 68th minute, until the goal of the Italian Giacomo Raspadori, in the other match of the group. Long before, for their part, the Magyars had opened the scoring, thanks to their striker and captain, author of a zlatanesque goal. On a corner, Adam Szalai, at the near post, was able to place his opposite small net ball, with a magnificent heel (17th, 0-1).

The Germans had too much waste

Marco Rossi’s men, although deprived of the ball (28% possession), even had the opportunity to bury the Germans definitively. But the latter were saved by their doorman. Marc-André ter Stegen was forced into a decisive save in front of Martin Adam (72nd), before doing the same on a powerful shot from Laszlo Kleinheisler (86th). The FC Barcelona goalkeeper allowed his people to be able to hope to at least save the draw.

But when the waste did not hit his attack, it was his counterpart who had the opportunity to shine. Peter Gulacsi proved intractable when Thomas Müller, from the head, framed the first attempt of his people, just before the break (39th). The last bulwark of Leipzig did it again, after returning from the locker room. And neither Leroy Sané (51st) nor Timo Werner (57th) could take it by default. Only Müller finally managed to deceive him (53rd), but the flag was rightly raised, for an offside position by Jonas Hofmann.

A 3-5-2 adopted for good? “Yes but hardly viable to be world champion”

Germany could therefore not find the solution, despite switching to three defenders for the start of the second act. For the first time since the elimination in the knockout stages of the Euro by England (2-0), the Germans failed to score. Above all, it’s a setback and a first defeat for Hans-Dieter Flick after thirteen games without a setback.

The Mannschaft will have a final duel in this League of Nations, but without stake, Monday (8:45 p.m.), with an England team corrected at home by the Hungarians in June (0-4). While Hungary, which was in League C at the launch of this new competition, has never been so close to the last four. In a group where logic would have liked Germany, England and Italy to compete for this place…
