RB Leipzig vs Bayern – 4-5

Bayern have turned the match around. The game showed that you should never count out the Rekordmeister! Leipzig looked like the sure winner, and Timo Werner the player of the match, but in the end Bayern were able to turn the game around winning the match in unbelievable fashion. Dortmund’s 1-1 draw in Augsburg means that Leipzig will finish the season in second place.


Unbelievable Arjen Robben wins it for Bayern München! The Dutchman receives the ball in his own half, and storms past several Leipzig defenders to beat Gulasci with a lop inside the six yard box.

90 + 2. Minute

Bayern want to win the match now, and press for the winning goal.


Robert Lewandowski is brought down outside the box. The replay, however, shows Lewandowski embellished the play. David Alaba, however, has no issues with the play, and converts the free kick.

87. Minute

Lewandowski fouls Keïta, but Stieler fails to book the Polish forward.

86. Minute

Bayern are pressing now. The Bavarians really want the equalizer can Leipzig hang on?

82. Minute – GOOOOOOOOL

Robben wins Bayern a freekick with his classic flying Dutchman routine.

The Polish striker now has 30 goals for the second season in a row.

78. Minute

Thiago finishes a great combination in the penalty box with a close-range header. Can Bayern come back?

57. Minute

Xabi Alonso on the edge of a red card here. The Bayern midfielder fouls Forsberg in midfield and receives a stern talking by referee Stieler, whose hand signal is clear “one more foul, and you are off.”

55. Minute

Leipzig are really clever here. Die Roten Bullen give Bayern plenty of space to control the ball, but at the same time are always dangerous moving forward.

41. Minute

Long break in play here. Frank Ribery seems to have picked up an injury, and is being replaced by Douglas Costa.
