Europe League Draw after a double deficit: RB Leipzig saves a draw
Twice in arrears, twice still answered. RB Leipzig saved a 2-2 draw against Real Sociedad San Sebastián in the second round of the Europa League.
Will Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig stumble out of the Europa League in lockstep? After BVB embarrassed themselves to the bone in the 2: 4 against Glasgow Rangers on Thursday (February 17, 2022), RB only partially saved the German European Cup evening with the 2: 2 against Real Sociedad.
After two deficits, the draw was still the best thing about the game against the Spaniards, especially since the abolished away goals rule means that the clocks are set to zero ahead of next week’s second leg. Christopher Nkunku responded to Robin Le Normand’s early 0-1 lead (8th) after half an hour of play.
In the second half, Mikel Oyarzabal put the visitors ahead with a penalty (64′), Emil Forsberg, also from the point, made it 2-2 in the final stages (82′).
