Record win! RBL thrash Mainz 8-0!

Sabitzer (5'), Werner (30'), Nukunku (35'), Halstenberg (39') and Poulsen (44') all score before the break | Werner (48', 87'), Mukiele (50') secure the record in the second half | 38,517 fans celebrate in the stands | RBL climb to third in the league

RBL's biggest ever win! The Bulls put on a show during their 8-0 victory at home against 1.FSV Mainz 05. Our previous biggest win in the Bundesliga was 6-0 against Nürnberg and our biggest overall win was 8-2 against Wilhelmshaven. Today's rout means RBL climb up to third in the Bundesliga table. 
The team got off to a dream start when Marcel Sabitzer opened the scoring after 5 minutes. What followed was an attacking master class with four more goals before the break, all within the space of 14 minutes: Timo Werner (30'), Christopher Nknuku (35'), Marcel Halstenberg (39') and Yussuf Poulsen (44') shared the goals to make it 5-0 at half time. 
The scoring barely slowed after the break and Timo Werner (48') and Nordi Mukiele (50') struck in quick succession to make it seven. Werner then completed his hat-trick before full time (87'), leaving the scoreline at 8-0. Up next is a Champions League clash with Zenit St. Petersburg.
