RB Leipzig made no mistake at the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday. The top club settled at home with SC Freiburg (3-0) and can later in the day watch ‘Der Klassiker’ with a good feeling, in which competitors Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich meet.
The opening goal was scored in the first half by defender Ibrahima Konaté. After the break, captain Marcel Sabitzer (penalty) and left back Angeliño (free kick) decided the game. Justin Kluivert stayed on the bench with the home team throughout the game.
Leipzig recovered from last week’s 1-0 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach. ‘Die Roten Bullen’ have sixteen points from seven matches and are therefore in the lead in the Bundesliga for a while.
Competitors Dortmund and Bayern have one point less and a better goal difference, which means that at least one of those clubs will still pass Leipzig. ‘Der Klassiker’ starts at 6.30 pm.
Sheraldo Becker played a leading role in the four other Bundesliga matches that were played at the same time as Leipzig. The former player of ADO Den Haag contributed with a goal to Union Berlin’s 5-0 win over Arminia Bielefeld.
Jeremiah St. Juste stayed a less pleasant afternoon. The defender of FSV Mainz ensured that competitor Schalke 04 took the third point of the season with an own goal: 2-2. That was also the final score at VfB Stuttgart-Eintracht Frankfurt, while Hertha BSC won 0-3 against FC Augsburg.
