Record wins, Top at Christmas and the Champions League - 2019/20 season highlights

RBL broke several records in 2019/20 | Biggest DFB-Pokal win | Biggest win in club's history in the Bundesliga | Top at the winter break | Reached the Champions League quarterfinals

2019/20 has been a season full of unforgettable moments!
We have finished our fourth season in Germany's top flight, and it was once again a successful one.

The Bulls enjoyed record wins in both the DFB-Pokal and the Bundesliga. We reached the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time after winning our group. Thanks to two excellent performances against Tottenham Hotspur we are now in the quarterfinals. RBL also went into the winter break top of the Bundesliga for the first time, going on to finish third, ensuring we have qualified for the Champions League for the third time in only our fourth Bundesliga campaign.

We're going to look back at all the relevant and interesting statistics. Julian Nagelsmann took charge at the start of the season, and the team also underwent a number of changes. Several injuries saw key players miss out for long periods of 2019/20 too.

DFB-Pokal:

After reaching the final in Berlin last season, Leipzig were eliminated by Frankfurt in the last 16 this time around (3-1).

Despite the early exit in the cup, the second-round win at Wolfsburg was one of the highlights of the season. The Wolves stood no chance as we ran out 6-1 winners - the biggest cup win in club history.

Enjoy all six goals below!

SCORING FOR FUN

The 8-0 home win over Mainz was definitely a match to remember this season.

The thumping victory by Julian Nagelsmann's men was the biggest win in the club's history!

Man of the Match Timo Werner scored a hat-trick and assisted two goals in the 8-0 trouncing of Mainz.

Another exciting game came just before the winter break. Leipzig came from behind twice to secure a 3-3 draw away to Dortmund - a result that went a long way to ensuring that the Bulls went into the winter break top of the table.

After a break of over two months, football returned in mid-May.

It was certainly different without fans, but we were still pleased that things were back underway!

After a mediocre second half of the season, we ended up finishing in third place, which means we will be back in the Champions League in 2020/21.

Timo Werner said goodbye to the club with a brace in his final game! He also became the club's all-time top goalscorer in Augsburg on matchday 34 (95 goals).
Nach vier erfolgreichen gemeinsamen Jahren endet eine Ära. Wir sagen Danke!
