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.
33rd minute: Werner capitalises on a Koubek mistake but he and his teammates somehow fail to turn the subsequent goalmouth scramble into a goal.
45 +3 minute: Nkunku crosses, Werner heads it just wide. The Bulls somehow find themselves a goal down at half time.
