    On paper it should be a win. And they better win by a couple at least, since Bayern is coming for them. Bayern figured they only need to play half of the season to get the Salatschüssel.

    Nice, the Beastie's Sabotage blaring out makes it feel like RBNY home game, can't wait for this one to start.

    Actually, I wish RBNY had their atmosphere.

    Tyler draws a foul dribbling out of pressure.

    0-1 Union Berlin. A sloppy pass to Adams from the left-back (Halstenberg?) enables Union Berlin to win the ball and surge forward.

    This is the type of goal I'm used to seeing the US national team surrender!

    1-0 Union Berlin

    Loose pass to Adams plays him into a slide tackle from a Union midfielder who wins the ball in the Leipzig half starting a quick counter.

    That was a hospital ball. Maybe a burst of speed avoids the tackle, but that was not a good pass.

    He is the Leipzig D's outlet, and starts the distribution, but it's good to see him get forward at times.

    Adams has a shot blocked but it looked like he was surprised it fell to him at the top of the box.

    Subotic and Rossi

    two peas in a pod

    justice would be Adams burning Subotic and scoring

    Adams is so good. Such a fun/intelligent player to watch.

    What a ball from Adams. He's looking very tidy. No rust.

    Both are from the species (pod) that the US could have greatly benefitted from their abilities. But I do understand why Subotic felt so connected to home Serbia. Rossi was just very different.

    Well, Leipzig are now ahead 2-1, on goals from Werner and Sabitzer. It certainly felt inevitable, as they were on the front foot from the start of the 2nd half.
