The fan, who collapsed before the round of 16 of the cup between RB Leipzig and TSG Hoffenheim and was resuscitated, has now died in the hospital. The Bundesliga team announced this on Thursday.
The RB Leipzig fan who collapsed before the round of 16 in the cup died in the hospital. This was announced by the club, which is in contact with the person’s family, on Thursday. “This news makes us very sad. Unfortunately, the person who had to be resuscitated in front of the stadium yesterday before the game died in hospital. We express our condolences and deepest sympathy to the relatives and friends,” RB Leipzig said in a statement. The club offered its support to the family.
Before the 3-1 cup match against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Wednesday, the fan collapsed in front of the stadium and had to be revived. As a result, the fans of the defending champions stopped supporting them, and the goals were hardly celebrated. The team dedicated the post-game success to the fan and wished him a speedy recovery. “It was a bit of a weird game. We noticed that too. This win was for him,” said goalkeeper Örjan Nyland.
