A winning change for Lucien Favre whose captain went to get the three points at Hoffenheim. Leipzig continues to unfold.
RB Leipzig, recent Champions League quarter-finalists, took the Bundesliga lead on their own on Saturday thanks to their 2-0 win at Augsburg on Matchday 4. With 10 points, the bulls are ahead of Borussia Dortmund (9 pts) winner 1-0 in Hoffenheim, while waiting for Bayern who play in Bielefeld at 6.30 p.m.
RB Leipzig therefore seem to have well digested the summer departures of their two attackers Timo Werner (Chelsea) and Patrik Schick (Leverkusen). With ten goals in four matches, Julian Nagelsmann’s team has in any case already found the right fuel on the offensive side. In Augsburg, it was Angelino then Yussuf Poulsen who shook the nets, propelling the bulls to the rank of second best attack in the country behind Bayern (13 goals).
In the shock of this fourth day, Borussia Dortmund went to snatch three very important points on the lawn of TSG Hoffenheim. Lucien Favre’s training was relieved fifteen minutes from the end by Marco Reus, introduced ten minutes earlier by the Vaud technician. Taking advantage of his captain’s passive offside position, Haaland set off to set the goalkeeper (and hit him) to give the goal to Marco Reus.
