RB Leipzig makes UCL history in last 8 tie

RB Leipzig makes UEFA CL history thanks to American midfielder Tyler Adams

August 13, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The German side will become the fifth Bundesliga club to make it to the semi-finals of the continental competition.

Atlético entered their tie against RB Leipzig as favorites to make it to the semis, but in the end, a deflected shot was all it took for underdogs RB Leipzig to claim the final four spot.

The German side dominated most stats in the game and even took the lead thanks to a well-placed header by Dani Olmo. Atlético fought back and found the equalizer thanks to a penalty kick by Joao Félix, but as the game came close to enter stoppage time, American midfielder Tyler Adams found the back of the net with a shot that was deflected by Stefan Savic's foot.

What really stands out is that Adams had not been able to score a single goal for RB Leipzig. Something tells us that he chose the right time to do so.

Moreover, Adams was also able to write his name in golden letters, as no other USMNT footballer had been able to score a last eight goal in the UEFA Champions League.

Adams' goal was also helpful for RB Leipzig in adding their name to an elite list of teams that have played in the UEFA Champions League semis. "RB Leipzig only needed 15 UCL games to reach the tournament's semi-finals. The German club has joined a list that includes Valencia (1999-00), Leeds United (2000-01), and Villarreal as the only teams to accomplish that feat."

And if you needed a curious fact to RB Leipzig's feat, here is one that has to do with none other than CR7.
