3-1 win against FC Augsburg!

A win at home in the last game of the year | Laimer, Schick and Poulsen on the scoresheet | RBL almost certainly top at Christmas

The Bulls ran out 3-1 winners against FC Augsburg in the last game of the year in front of a 40,562 strong home crowd. The team struck three times in the second half to come back from 1-0 down!

Nagelsmann's men dominated the play from the start and created chance after chance. However, it was the visitors who went into the break a goal to the good, after Florian Niederlechner converted their only chance of the half (9').

The second half looked like it was going the same way - plenty of RBL pressure, but Augsburg's defence held on. That was until Konrad Laimer hammered a shot into the top corner to make it 1-1 (68'). Patrik Schick then gave the Bulls the lead (80'), before substitute Yussuf Poulsen put the game to bed shortly before full time with a tap-in to make it 3-1 (89').

The result means that Leipzig will almost certainly be top at Christmas as Gladbach would need to win by a margin of 14 goals in the day's late kick-off in order to overtake us.
