Well balanced, was the first day of the Mercedes-Benz JuniorCup / Rapid Wien, the defending champion, is the only team that is already in the semifinals.
A rare calmness characterized the first day of the 27th Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup. Almost everything was still up in the air, even after nine and a half hours of high-level indoor soccer playing in front of 4,500 viewers at the Glaspalast in Sindelfingen. While Rapid Wien was able to qualify for the semifinals, Rosenborg Trodenheim does not stand a chance anymore. However, all other teams can still strive for the championship victory.
Especially the South Korean team should be on the list, on the second day. The U19 national team was close to elimination, but improved from game to game and finished the last match of the day against RB Leipzig with a 5: 2. Hoffenheim, a German national team leads the intermediate round group 1.
