The Giallorossi played a good match at the Borussia Park but left the stadium with an unlucky defeat due to another goal suffered during the extra-time.
After a poor first half, the Giallorossi had dominated the second part of the match. Football can be fierce sometimes and Borussia M’Gladbach scored a late goal against the Lupi once again. Thuram‘s header stabbed Pau Lopez and the group led by Paulo Fonseca.
The Portuguese coach, who had not changed his starting 11 once again, replaced a few players in the second 45 minutes to give freshness to his group. A remarkable performance for Veretout, Santon, and Pastore. The first two covered their zone with tactical wisdom while the Argentine delighted the audience with superior quality plays and he would have deserved the goal.
