Honours even at home

Patrik Schick with the equaliser | Home section sold out again | RBL stay second

Draw at home! The Bulls shared the spoils with Leverkusen in a 1-1 draw in front of 41,216 spectators.
 
As expected, the game developed into an evenly matched contest between two good sides, although Leverkusen were the more dangerous of the two teams going forward. Leon Bailey fired the guests in front after he finshed off a nice move down the right flank (29'). Just three minutes later, Patrik Schick latched onto Christopher Nkunku's free-kick delivery to bring Leipzig level (32').
 
Just after half time, Nkunku had a massive chance to put the Bulls ahead, but Leverkusen stopper Lukas Hradecky was on hand to deny the Frenchman (47'). The remainder of the game was a little flat, and finished 1-1.

Highlights:

Nagelsmann makes one change to the team that started against Schalke. Emil Forsberg replaces the suspended Konrad Laimer.
Image
Frederik Jäkel is included in a first-team matchday squad for the first time.

In recent days, distasteful and offensive banners have been displayed in various stadia. We condemn this, and the fans reitorated this statement, revealing an impressive tifo before kick-off.
Image
1': We're underway. Let's go, Leipzig!
Image
4': Gulácsi is involved already! But our number one is equal to Demirbay's long-range effort!
Image
But our lads are well in it. But Leipzig just aren't able to find any gaps in the Leverkusen defence.
Image
13': Timo gives Jonathan Tah the runaround, dribbles into the penalty area, but his shot is block.
Image
29': Leverkusen take the lead through Leon bailey. Gulácsi had no chance.
Image
32': GOAL FOR RBL! The perfect response! Schickeinem rises to meet Nkunku's delivery from the freekick, the Czech striker meets the ball and heads home. It stayed 1-1 until half time.
Image
46': Almost! The second half has only been underway for a minute and Nkunku is close to putting Leipzig ahead. But Hradecky gets a fingertip to it and pushes it arounf the post.
Image
The midfield is becoming increasingly more congested, which is slowing the game down. But Angelino breaks down the left wing and squares it into the box, but nobody is there to get on the end of it.
Image
63': Nkunku delivers, Schick meets it. But his headed effort is just over the bar.
Image
inches away from the winner! Sabi fires from range, but his effort is agonisingly close and flies just over the crossbar. There was no further action and it remained 1-1.
