Victory on the road! 3-0 win over Schalke!

RB Leipzig with deserved 3-0 victory over Schalke 04 | Julian Nagelsmann makes five changes from XI vs. Bochum | Nordi Mukiele (45'+2), Marcel Sabitzer (73') and Willi Orban (86') on the scoresheet

3-0 road win against Schalke!

Everything went to plan on Saturday afternoon. Julian Nagelsmann’s team attacked the game from the first minute and dominated the play. Dominating possession and creating chances, it was Nordi Mukiele who headed in with the last move of the half to put his side ahead (45+2’).

The second half began as the first one ended, with Leipzig on top. Alexander Sørloth and Nkunku had efforts saved by Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann. The team were eventually rewarded for their strong performance. After some fantastic link-up play between Dani Olmo and Angeliño, the full back played in captain Marcel Sabitzer, who slotted home at the near post (73’). Shortly before full timed, centre back Willi Orban beat three men in the air to head home Angeliño’s corner (87’).
