2-1 home win over Augsburg!

Home victory over FC Augsburg in frosty temperatures | RB Leipzig record third consecutive Bundesliga win | Dani Olmo (38', pen) and Christo Nkunku (43') on scoresheet for RBL | Caligiuri (77', pen) for Augsburg

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

Match highlights

Image
Head coach Julian Nagelsmann makes four changes to the side that took on Schalke 04. Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabitzer are rested and Pete Gulácsi takes the captain’s armband.
Image
5th minute: First chance! Christo Nkunku has a shot on goal with a free kick from the edge of the area. The shot is well hit, but too central and Gikiewicz parries.
Image
20th minute: The opening phase has gone the way of Leipzig, with the Bulls controlling the play and looking to attack.
Image
The team is delivering a good performance, but scoring chances are missing.
Image
34th minute: Nordi Mukiele looks to get on the end of a rebound and is brought down in the area. Penalty!
Image
43rd minute: Yussuf Poulsen wins possession in midfield and breaks through into the area. He selflessly squares the ball to the supporting Nkunku…
Image
… who just has to roll the ball over the line!
Image
60th minute: The team have relaxed in the second half and taken a little tempo out of the game since the second goal. Augsburg are unable to offer anything in attack.
Image
63rd minute: Ibou Konaté makes his return from injury as a substitute – his last game was in the middle of December. Welcome back, Ibou!
Image
77th minute: One back for the visitors. Caligiuri finishes from the spot after Pedersen was brought down with Konaté in the area.
Image
78th minute: Almost an instant reply, twice! Firstly, Gikiewicz pushes a Poulsen header away. Then, from the resulting corner, Orban powers a header just off target.
Image
90th minute: It’s a tense ending to the game, and it goes a bit crazy in the six-yard box in the final minute…
Image
… Augsburg win a corner and send every player forward. After a few ricoches and deflections, there’s players down on the floor and it’s getting hectic. In the end, the ever-reliable Pete Gulácsi remains calm and claims the ball.

We are Leipzig!
