RB Leipzig: Lurking in second

After four competitive games without a win, RB Leipzig put the bad run behind them with a 3-0 victory over Werder Bremen last weekend. The small dip in form after the winter break may have cost them first place, but they continue to lurk just one point behind industry leaders Bayern München – remaining very-much in contention for the first title in the club’s short history.

David Wagner was proud of his side after the win in Leipzig, while Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann was frustrated with his team’s poor decision making.

Not pretty and no icing on the cake, but an important point

RB Leipzig had already scored twelve goals at home this season before facing FC Schalke 04 on Sunday.

The result was better than last season,” said Domenico Tedesco, whose team took a point back to Gelsenkirchen this time round.
