Borussia Dortmund enjoys Niklas Süle’s incredible save from Kylian Mbappé


By: Manu Tournoux

If Paris Saint-Germain failed to win against Dortmund (1-1), it is largely due to the incredible lack of offensive efficiency of the Ile-de-France attackers. But a certain Niklas Süle also has something to do with it. The German BVB defender signed the action of the match in the 17th minute. While Kylian Mbappé had managed to clear the Marsupiaux goalkeeper, the Bondynois thought he would open the score in the empty goal.

This was without counting on a masterful intervention from Süle. Author of a desperate sliding tackle, the former Bayern Munich player had the reflex to lift his right leg to deprive Mbappé of a ready goal (17th). An impressive action rewarded by a deafening noise from Signal Iduna Park. After the match, the BVB hero returned to this action, not without pleasure.

World-class action

“At first I thought it was offside. You can all take a quick look at my crotch (laughs). Somehow, I reflexively raise my foot. I think it should be prevented beforehand. We know how fast Mbappé is. I can be fast over long distances, but it’s difficult against Mbappé. I have to let myself go faster. Of course, it’s good that such a spectacular save didn’t make it 0-1. I think I can do better first”he confided in the mixed zone, before being praised by his coach Edin Terzic.

“Mbappé was very afraid that the ball was not there. We are happy with every tackle that looks like this. There have been a few in this stadium, but this one is of course exceptionally good. That’s what I said: if you make a mistake beforehand, sometimes you can make up for that mistake. It preserved the 0-0 at that time. Niklas did that, it was world class. Still, it made up for something, something we hadn’t done well before, and that’s what I’m talking about: we shouldn’t use the tackle as often. It’s all about resolving issues better in advance so you don’t have to bother as often as we have recently. It’s not just us in football in general who take a lot of risks with tackling. It was a world class tackle and a great move from Niklas Süle. » The person concerned will appreciate while Mbappé left Dortmund sulking.
