Leipzig provisional runner-up to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga

While Union Berlin, Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt, respectively 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the Bundesliga before this 15th day, will play on Sunday, it was enough to win at RB Leipzig to temporarily become Bayern’s runner-up.

Before joining the Blues, the striker did not frame any of his three opportunities (29th, 51st, 65th). The team coached by Marco Rose was able to score thanks to André Silva (13th) and Xaver Schlager (70th) while Christian Gross had equalized (56th). Leipzig was also able to count on a very solid match from its goalkeeper Janis Blaswich, author of several stops on his line (22nd, 42nd, 75th, 89th).

Leverkusen goes on

While waiting for the meeting of extremes, between Schalke 04 (18th) and Bayern Munich (1st), at 6.30 p.m., four other Bundesliga matches took place in the afternoon. Future opponent of Monaco in the Europa League play-offs, Bayer Leverkusen continues its recovery. The formation now led by Xabi Alonso has a third straight victory in the league against Stuttgart (2-0).

His first goal? A beautiful breakthrough by Moussa Diaby escaping half of the Stuttgart team before scoring with a deflected shot (30th). Leverkusen thus goes back to 11th place, 9 points behind the leading quartet. Herta Berlin won against Cologne (2-0). Bochum won in Augsburg (1-0) and Wolfsburg returned a match they lost, in Hoffenheim, by winning 2 goals to 1.
