FA Cup:Tuchel loses the final

Thomas Tuchel missed being the first German coach to win the FA Cup. In the final in London, his Chelsea FC lost to Premier League rivals Leicester City 0-1 (0-0). The Belgian international Youri Tielemans (63.) scored with a beautiful long-range shot in the corner in front of a good 21,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium for Leicester, which triumphed for the first time in the fifth final in the club’s history.

The Blues, in which Timo Werner and Antonio Rüdiger were in the starting line-up, still have a chance of their second success in the Champions League in exactly two weeks. Opponents on May 29 in Porto are the new English champions Manchester City, whom Chelsea defeated in the league just a week ago. On Tuesday, the fourth in the table in the battle for qualification for the premier class will meet again on the penultimate league matchday against Leicester, which is two points ahead of the Blues.
