Benjamin Šeško will have to wait a bit longer for a league goal against the mighty Bayern, but last night he came very close to securing a victory for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga's match of the round.
Yesterday, in the Bundesliga's match of the round, Leipzig faced Bayern München. The game ended in a 2:2 draw, but Bayern was on the ropes. After the first half, they were trailing 2:0, and it seemed like a real disaster was looming. However, an early second-half penalty, converted by star English striker Harry Kane, sparked the reigning champions.
Later, Leroy Sane finished a swift team move by Bayern to level the score at 2:2. At this point, Slovenian ace Benjamin Šeško entered the fray.
The young forward came very close to scoring a goal after one of Leipzig's counterattacks, which would likely have decided the match, but the 20-year-old couldn't succeed in his attempt. It was a great opportunity, and after the match, it was commented on by coach Marco Rose, who was pleased with how bravely Šeško charged forward and positioned himself well – but then made the wrong decision in the final move.
"He played very courageously and positioned himself excellently, but then he took too long a stride. If he had just nudged the ball past at that moment, that would have been it."
