Goalless in Wolfsburg

0-0 agains VfL Wolfsburg |More possession but no goals | Werner brought on in the seond half

Draw in Wolfsburg. RB Leipzig share the spoils with VfL Wolfsburg after slumping to a goalless draw in Lower Saxony.

The home side started the brightest of the two teams and could have gone ahead after creating chances for Wout Weghorst and then Paulo Otávio. The Bulls, on the other hand, were unable to find any real rhythm and failed to create any meaningful chances. The last ten minutes of the half were characterised by end-to-end football, but neither team took advantage of this.

Leipzig looked the better team in the second half, but were still unable to carve out any clear-cut opportunities to score. Timo Werner and Dani Olmo were brought on at the hour mark, but while they added to the Bulls' offensive power, they were unable to affect the scoreline. Final score; 0-0.
