Fantastic 4-1 win against Köln!

42,036 fans (in a sold out Red Bull Arena) witnessed a footballing fireworks show | Werner (22'), Forsberg (32', 79') and Laimer (37') on the scoresheet | RBL 2nd in the league | Demme played his 100th Bundesliga game for RB Leipzig

The Bulls made light work of 1. FC Köln and ran out 4-1 winners with a great display in front of the home crowd. RBL stay second in the league, now just one point behind the leaders.
 
The attack was firing on all cylinders and created chance after chance. Timo Werner (22'), Emil Forsberg (32', penalty) and Konrad Laimer (37') made it 3-0, before the visitors pulled one back ahead of half time through Rafael Czichos (39').
 
The Bulls continued to dominate the game after the break but could not seem to put the game to bed with a goal. Eventually, Emil Forsberg stepped up to score his second of the game with a stunning free kick to make it 4-1 (79'). The scoreline remained the same until full time.
