RB Leipzig traveled to Turkey to face İstanbul Başakşehir on Wednesday. American 21-year-old midfielder Tyler Adams played the entire second half and picked up a hockey assist and — you know what, that’s all I’m going to say about this game right now because you need to just watch the RB Leipzig-Başakşehir highlights in full (below).
RB Leipzig-Başakşehir Highlights
RB Leipzig took leads of 2-0 and 3-1 only to blow them before scoring late for a ridiculous 4-3 victory.
The German side looked to be cruising in the opening 45 minutes through goals from Yussuf Poulsen and Nordi Mukiele only for İrfan Kahveci to pull one back just before halftime. Dani Olmo restored the two-goal advantage midway through the second half (with Adams notching the hockey assist) but Kahveci completed his amazing hat trick with strikes in the 72nd and 85th minutes. His free kick to equalize was a beauty.
But Leipzig came through with a late winner through Alexander Sørloth, who moments earlier nearly scored with his face, one of a few efforts that went off the post on Wednesday.
The win put Leipzig on nine points through five games. If PSG beats Manchester United later Wednesday, all three teams will be tied at nine points heading into the final match day, when PSG hosts Başakşehir and Leipzig hosts United.
