Bulls run riot in the DFB-Pokal ! 6-1 win at VfL Wolfsburg!

Own goal (14'), Sabitzer (55'), Forsberg (58'), Laimer (61') and Werner (68', 88') fire RB Leipzig into the round of 16 | Draw for the next round on Sunday at 18:00 CET | Orban taken off early due to knee problems

RBL on fire in the DFB-Pokal! The Bulls beat a previously unbeaten VfL Wolfsburg team 6-1 in the second round of the DFB-Pokal and make it through to the round of 16. 
 
Leipzig took an early lead in front of 3,300 travelling fans when Jeffrey Bruma failed to get out of the way of a rebound and scored an unfortunate own goal (14'). The first half was a scrappy affair with few chances at either end and the score remained 1-0 until the break. 
 
After half-time, the Bulls scored four goals in 13 minutes: Marcel Sabitzer (55'), Emil Forsberg (58'), Konrad Laimer (61') and Timo Werner (68') all found the back of the net in quick succession. Timo then added his second of the night to make it 6-0 (88'), before Wout Weghorst grabbed a consolation goal for the hosts at the death.

Yvon Mvogo made his second start of the season.
Image
14th minute: GOAL FOR RBL! Konrad Laimer's cross finds Marcel Halstenberg. The ball falls to Dayot Upamecano, whose shot is saved by Pavao Pervan…

… but Willi Orban's effort rebounds off Bruma and over the line for the opener.
Image
26th minute: Willi Orban is taken off to receive treatment for a knee injury and is replaced by Stefan Ilsanker, who makes his first appearance this season
Image
Half-time: The Bulls deserve to be ahead after having the best of a rather stop-start scrappy first 45 minutes.
Image
46th minute: Wolfsburg start the second half well and Stefan Ilsanker is called into action to block Josip Brekalo's effort. Mvogo prevents Williams from finding Weghorst and Victor fires over the bar.
Image
55th minute: GOAL FOR RBL! Sabitzer and Werner combine with a wonderful one-two and the former tucks it away to double Leipzig's lead.

Image
61st minute: GOAL FOR RBL! Unbelievable scenes as Poulsen flicks on a Halstenberg pass...
Image
... and Laimer fires it home to cap a great individual performance with a goal.
Image
68th minute: GOAL FOR RBL! Not content with just setting up the goals, Timo decides to grab one for himself. Some fantastic one touch passing in the build up sets up Werner to make it 5-0 from about 12 metres out.
Image
88th minute: GOAL FOR RBL! Werner again! He cuts in from the left and tucks it away. 6-0.
Image
89th minute: Goal for Wolfsburg! A late consolation for the hosts via Wout Weghorst does little to dampen Leipzig spirits.
