Bayern leipzig highlights. FC Bayern München
MUNICH, Germany — German champions Bayern Munich clung on to the Bundesliga's top spot after holding closest rivals RB Leipzig to a thrilling 3-3 home draw, with Thomas Mueller scoring twice in a rip-roaring contest on Saturday. The only thing scarier than Lewandowski might just be a rested Lewandowski. But Mueller made sure Bayern stayed in the league's driving seat when he powered a 75th-minute header past Gulacsi thanks to a fine cross from Kingsley Coman, with the France winger racking up three assists. Tolisso makes way for Martinez in central midfield with the Frenchman not fully recovered from a muscle strain, while Sane gets the nod over Gnabry out wide. 96 mph 35. . Leipzig flying here early on! Neuer races off his line but Nkunku skips past him in style before slotting the ball into the empty net. Julian Nagelsmann's side face an uphill battle today: Leipzig haven't scored against Bayern in Munich in any of their four previous visits. Leverkusen could move up to second and slash Bayern's lead to one point when they visit bottom team Schalke on Sunday. Writing by Zoran Milosavljevic; Editing by Clare Fallon.
It's first against second in what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures of the season. But Bayern's joy was short-lived as Justin Kluivert, on loan at Leipzig from Serie A side AS Roma, equalised barely a minute later with his first goal for the club when he took advantage of some slack defending and drilled the ball past Neuer. Leipzig forced another twist in the 48th minute as Forsberg found the back of the net with a thumping header from six metres after an inch-perfect cross from Angelino as Bayern's defence was left exposed yet again. Germany-born attacking midfielder Musiala showed his vast potential as he beat keeper Peter Gulacsi with a sublime low shot from 20 metres before Mueller capped a flowing move with a clinical finish. Alphonso Davies ankle joins him in the stands. His third shot on goal already and finally one comes off.
The heavyweight duo will return to Flick's starting XI, who'll be seeking to pick up a seventh win in an eight-game unbeaten Bundesliga run that has them in first place coming into the weekend's action. Bayern come into the game two points clear of Leipzig, and - with their Champions League progress already assured - having had the luxury of resting not only Lewandowski but also Neuer for their midweek trip to Atletico Madrid. Bayern's No. Leipzig's kept their European destiny in their own hands following a spectacular 4-3 win at Basaksehir on Wednesday, a match in which Upamecano played the full 90 minutes. Joshua Kimmich returned to light training this week following his knee injury, but the Germany international remains on the sidelines. 5, 2020 Christopher Nkunku fired Leipzig ahead in the 19th minute when he picked up a defence-splitting pass by Emil Forsberg and slotted the ball into an empty net after rounding Bayern's advancing goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. 00 mph 35.
