Sen players are uncharacteristically confident this time.
After the game, Wirtz, who contributed 1 goal and 1 assist in this game, said: “It’s really great to be able to celebrate with everyone again. After the end of regular time, my calf and thigh began to cramp.
So it was replaced early.”
Regarding Leverkusen’s 5 free throws in the penalty shootout, Wertz said: “I didn’t expect us to score 5, but we have practiced a lot in the past few weeks, and now it may have paid off.”
