It was a victory, and it was a comfortable one at that. A one-way second half has rarely felt as uninformative as it did for RB Leipzig. Points are points, but consecutive home triumphs over Bochum and Greuther Fürth provide few hints as to how Jesse Marsch’s first season as a Bundesliga manager will ultimately pan out.
Leipzig’s slender Champions League chances were given a likely fatal blow with a defeat at Paris Saint-Germain, a result that may potentially lead to a new year without any European involvement at all. “The boys stuck to the plan, had confidence and played very well,” Marsch reflected before Saturday’s game. “With a bit more luck and a little more maturity in a couple of situations we could have won the game.”
The coach wasn’t joking when he said it. They overcame an early Kylian Mbappé goal with goals from André Silva and Nordi Mukiele that typified Leipzig at their best: efficient and incisive, and both produced by Angelio, who is regaining his form. They attacked well but didn’t take their chances against a PSG team that they managed to make appear ordinary, and a pair of defensive errors saw them walk home empty-handed, much to Marsch’s chagrin on the sidelines.
