RB Leipzig see off Schalke with 4-0 victory!

Angeliño (35') and Willi Orban (45+2') with headers, Marcel Halstenberg from penalty spot (80') | Schalke own goal puts RBL ahead (32') | The Roten Bullen take top spot in the league

A well-deserved home victory! The Roten Bullen defeated Schalke 04 in front of 8,500 fans at the Red Bull Arena by a scoreline of 4-0 after a strong performance. 
 
Schalke were able to hold firm for the first 30 minutes, but RBL took a quick 3-0 lead into the break. Can Bozdogan scored an own goal (32') before two impressive headers from Angeliño (35') and Willi Orban (45+2') increased the lead.
 
RBL dominated the game, with the visitors being limited to just one good chance. The result could have been even more, but the Roten Bullen weren't as clinical as they could be. In the 80th minute, Marcel Halstenberg converted his penalty after a handball was given to increase the lead to 4-0. 
 
The second win of the season has sent RBL top of the table after three games.
