German Bundesliga Report: RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich 18 March 2018

19 Marcha 2018

RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita was at his twinkle-toed best on Matchday 27 to inspire his side to a first ever win over Bayern Munich.

Leipzig managed to see off the late surge from the Bundesliga leaders to clinch all three points.

The hosts got off to the perfect start as they took the lead on 12 minutes when James Rodriguez's cross found Sadro Wanger, who headed home from close range.

With the result, 6th-placed Leipzig reduced their arrears to the top-four whereas Bayern's lead atop the standings shrank to 17 points.

Keita then set up Timo Werner and he drilled a low winner from 15 yards past Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

The home side did manage to level matters 10 minutes later thanks to a strike from Liverpool-bound Guinean midfielder Naby Keita. However, Keita seized on the rebound as he planted a left-footed strike home in what was a deserved equalising goal for Leipzig.

Cologne focussed on fast breaks meanwhile Leverkusen controlled the ball but were unable to produce goal-scoring opportunities.

The Werkself had a couple of promising chances after the restart but Cologne's custodian Timo Horn saved Julian Brandt's fine effort before Leon Bailey unleashed an free kick on target.
