Big win! 3-0 victory in Freiburg!

RB Leipzig pick up 6th consecutive Bundesliga win | Goals from Nkunku (41’), Sørloth (64’) and Forsberg (79’) | Bulls take top spot ahead of Bayern’s game against Dortmund

Poulsen stays cool - Nkunku finishes!

Leipzig enjoyed control of the game away at the Schwarzwald-Stadion, but Christian Streich's side remained compact and didn't allow the team too many chances in the first half.

Shortly before half time, Leipzig found the breakthrough through Christopher Nkunku (41'). Kevin Kampl won the ball high up the field and Yussuf Poulsen found himself bearing down on goal before squaring to our number 18, who made no mistake.

Sørloth and Forsberg with the icing on the cake!

Two more goals followed in the second half, firstly through Alex Sørloth in the 64th minute and Emil Forsberg in the 79th. A well deserved 3-0 win!

Perfect conditions for football here in Breisgau on Saturday afternoon!
Two changes to the starting line up, with Alexander Sørloth…
… and Amadou Haidara coming into the side.
10th minute: First dangerous play of the game from Leipzig! Nkunku plays a great ball in from the left-hand side…
… but it’s just a little too high for Alex Sørloth, who had risen above his man.
22nd minute: Sørloth advances through the middle and makes space for himself before firing a low drive towards goal, Freiburg’s Müller is however able to save.
41st minute: RBL take the lead! Kevin Kampl wins the ball as Freiburg look to play out from the back, Yussuf Poulsen brings it down and finds himself in on goal.
Poulsen stays cool and squares the ball to Christopher Nkunku, who finishes into the half-open goal!
50th minute: Freiburg start the second half with a bit more of a spring in their step.
However, the Leipzig defence stands strong and doesn’t allow the home side any opportunities.
63rd minute: Head coach Julian Nagelsmann makes a double change, bringing on Emil Forsberg…
… and Hee-chan Hwang.
79th minute: From the back to the front! Nkunku, Kampl, Hwang, Forsberg and Sørloth all involved, it's quick pass and move play and the boys march down the field before Emil finishes from the edge of the area! Magical!

We are Leipzig!
