The incident took place after the Bundesliga Giants lost to Manchester City in the first leg of the quarter-final of the Champions League. The Senegalese reportedly landed a punch in the face which left the German forward bleeding. The players were separated from their teammates.

Thomas Tuchel‘s side was brushed by Guardiola’s side by 3-0. The English team scored thrice, while Spanish midfielder Rodri opened the scoring for the team with a beautiful curler. The two others came from a brilliant assist by Erling Haaland to  Bernando Silva who made a running header into a goal. The Norwegian forward recorded another goal for the side in the 76th minute making it a cherry on the cake. The fight between Leroy Sane and Mane was allegedly due to an altercation and Sane’s misdemeanour towards the former Liverpool star during the match. 

For the time being, the Bundesliga Giants would face Hoffenheim. The Netizens will fly to Allianz Arena on April 20 after facing Southampton in the Premier League. The German side would need to climb a mountain to qualify for the semi finals of the Champions League.

The new manager of the German side didn’t see much of a positive side in the first leg of the Quarter Final. The 49-year-old Tactician was replaced by 35-year-old Julian Nagelsmann a few weeks before the quarter-finals. This move was already criticized. The former Chelsea manager needs to bring an extraordinary card off his sleeve to prove his worth.

The veteran German started with a 4-2-3-1 lineup. The same strategy didn’t work out much in the match against the Spanish Tactician setup of 3-2-4-1. Thomas Tuchel is always known to play three at the back formation. The benching of Joao Cancelo was highly criticized by pundits, calling it to be a reason for the defeat. The German side maintained possession slightly more than their English Opponents. While the Cityzens registered more shots on targets and converted it thrice into goals than the Reds. Unexpectedly the Bundesliga giants failed to create any hazard for their opponents in the match in Etihad.

The German side may change their tactics as their manager has knowledge and experience of facing the Spanish Tactician earlier. The side needs to play an attacking mindset along with saving them from conceding any further. It may be hoped that Tuchel will think of new tactics to ensure cut contact with Erling Haaland who has brilliant form in the game.
