Finally Leipzig were able to convert pressure into goals; Lukas Klostermann latched onto Patrik Schick's lay-off to give the Bulls the lead (17'); just before half time, Schick himself got on the scoresheet (39'):

Leipzig stayed hungry after half time and scored just 30 seconds into the second half. Nordi Mukiele profitted from Konrad Laimer's beautiful pass and made it 3-0. This took most of the energy out of the game, and Leipzig cruised home to victory.
