Statistics does not hold Domenico Tedesco much, even the table is allegedly interested in the coach of RB Leipzig.
His professionals see that a little different, what Kevin Kampl communicated after the loose 3-0 against the TSG Hoffenheim proudly. “We are the best team of the second half, which would not have thought after the first round. This shows what’s in the team. We show our true face,” said the 31-year-old.
For Hoffenheim’s coach Sebastian Hoeneß is Leipzig “Currently the Team of the Hour”. With 34 goals, the runner-up has shot as many goals in the second round as no other. And the least collected with nine goals.
