Victory at the Red Bull Arena!
RB Leipzig brought the heat at -10 degree temperatures. Julian Nagelsmann's team opened the scoring from the penalty spot, Dani Olmo making no mistake at the second time of asking (36'). Shortly before half time (43'), Christo Nkunku doubled the lead after some fine work from Yussuf Poulsen.
It was a similar picture in the second half, before Caligiuri pulled one back with a penalty of his own (77'). That caused for an intense end to the game, in which Leipzig created chances that they did not take. In the end, the team held on to secure a deserved 2-1 victory.
