Germany did not give option to Ukraine in Leipzig with a solvent victory and will be in the final phase of the Nations League if you don’t lose against Spain at La Cartuja next Tuesday. The set of Löw it printed an infernal rhythm from the start of the game impossible to replicate by the Central European team, dedicated much to its regret to dewatering tasks to try to stop the German offensive torrent.
Even though Germany used a 3-4-3, there is no doubt that Löw He tries to drink from the Bayern fountain in this phase of generational change that his team is going through. Order and patience were the keynote in the exit of the ball to give way to an all-out offensive when it stepped on danger zones.
Without the temperance of Toni Kroos In the engine room, the chaotic and unpredictable character of the German attack is further accentuated because they are Werner, Sané Y Gnabry those who set the tempo with their unchecking and constant exchanges of position. The goal of Yaremchuk In the 12th minute, after a series of indecisions by the local defense, the script of the clash did not change one iota, dominated from beginning to end by Germany.
At the equator of the first half, a loss of Ukraine punished her well Goretzka, who leaked a ball into space so that Sané cut a defender and defined before Pyatov (22 ‘). Germany did not take their foot off the gas and continued to prowl the goal on each approach. Koch, one of the centrals, acted as improvised Kimmich pulling out the periscope to find Goretzka with a great vertical pass that topped Ukraine’s rear. The Bayern player, entering the kitchen, controlled the ball with a spectacular acrobatics and assisted Werner so that he only had to push the leather into the goal.
In the second half, the game was even more open, with a disconcerted Ukraine that never gave its arm to twist. Those of Shevchenko they warned with a shot at the wood and there Germany became serious, which took control of the pulsations again. After a wonderful choral play, Werner he holed on goal to make the final 3-1 in the 64th minute. The subsequent exchange of blows was innocuous and the game ended without more goals.
