You know why I love German football even more than Ls liga and the Premiership? It is not only for the technical football, but for the sheer conveyor belt of talent that league churns out year after year after year. One of those youngsters in Nkuku who showed hunger to finish off Leverkusen even though he looked to have lost the chance from the initial block.

Whilst the highlight package below shows the best of Leipzig which is accurate, Bayer were dominant in possession and chances created. The two sides were closer to each in terms of league position so I expected the match to be more evens Stevens. Ex Man United right back Fosu Mensah started for Bayer on the right back position. Sabitzer the Austrian ran the midfield position for Red Bull with his usual tenacity. This was a welcome result for Leipzig having lost points in recent games to sides you would expect them to beat. The key to ending Bayern’s dominance of the Bundesliga is and will inevitably be consistency. Bayern this season look fallible especially away from the Allianz Arena so there is still hope for Leipzig but they have to start stringing unbeaten runs together.
