RBL away in Mainz! On matchday 27 of the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig took all three points in an emphatic victory over 1. FSV Mainz 05. The Bulls put five past the Zerofivers, thereby ending a run of three consecutive draws.
Yussuf Poulsen captained the team on his 250th appearance for the club, while Dayot Upamecano slotted into the back line after serving a one-game suspension. Timo Werner was on top form, scoring his third hattrick of the current Bundesliga season (11', 48', 75'). Poulsen marked the special personal occasion with a goal (23'), while Marcel Sabitzer scored his ninth goal of the season (37') - this is now the Austrian's most prolific season in a Leipzig shirt.
39': Mainz record their first chance of the match, as Robin Quaison just misses getting on the end of a cross from Jean-Paul Boëtius.
60': Willi Orban makes his comeback from injury and is subbed on for Upamecano. Tyler Adams also comes on to replace Sabitzer.
78': Mainz are on the hunt for a consolation. Aarón Martín crosses from the left-hand side, where Jean-Philippe Mateta is waiting eagerly for a chance. The Frenchman's backheeled effort is just wide.
90': Final whistle. 5-0 to Leipzig. The Bulls move back up to third!
