In a thoroughly entertaining game, RBL deservedly won 2-0 against second-placed Borussia Mönchengladbach, meaning they are now just one point behind the Foals.

In the pouring rain, 41,939 fans watched an intense match in a sold-out Red Bull Arena. Both teams had a lot of chances, but Die Roten Bullen made the most of theirs, scoring in just the third minute through Timo Werner's well-taken strike. RBL doubled their lead right on the brink of half-time, Werner getting his fourth Bundesliga brace of the season after unselfish play from Yussuf Poulsen. Gladbach rarely threatened, their threat nullified by a strong showing from the RBL defence. Péter Gulácsi made some great saves in goal, while Ibrahima Konaté and Dayot Upamecano snuffed out any chances the visitors had. The game ended 2-0, meaning Leipzig continued their strong home form and climbed up to third in the table.
