One thought on “Episode 9: “The Match,” “Der Klassiker””
  1. Great interview with Felix Haselsteiner, even though he’s an Austrian Bayern Fan (where was the question about Dominik Thiem? ;)!
    So, admittedly, Kimmich’s goal was clearly the goal of the week, but this free kick from Ingvartsen was special, not just because he’s on my fantasy team (watch at 1:03):
    You would typically expect him to aim top corner over the wall. Unfortunately, so did the Mainz keeper. Brilliant exploitation of goalkeeping anticipation!
