Kevin Kampl was captain of RB Leipzig again, Benjamin Šeško only came on at the end of the game and Bayern Munich went from 0:2 to 2:2
In Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena, we watched the derby of the 6. round of the German Bundesliga, in which the RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich clashed. Former Slovenian international Kevin Kampl was once again the captain of his team, which had won six consecutive games before today’s match, but this time won “only” a point, despite already leading 2-0.
The visitors were the first, who had a chance to score in 3rd minute, when Jamal Musiala found himself alone in front of the home goalkeeper Janis Blaswich, but Blaswich reacted phenomenally to keep out the shot. Less than ten minutes later, Emil Forsberg missed a 100% chance, when he shot a slightly inaccurate shot into an empty net after a big mistake by Sven Ulreich. The first traffic light change occurred in 20th minute. Luis Openda made a fine escape from the visiting defence after a nice pass into Xaver Schlager’s area, scoring for the fourth time in this championship. Just six minutes later, the Red Bulls increased their lead through Castell Lukebay after a mix-up in the penalty area and went into the break with a two-goal advantage.
After only ten minutes of play in the second half, Bayern were awarded a harsh penalty after an alleged handball by Benjamin Henrichs and a video replay, which was taken by Harry Kane, although the Blaswich goalkeeper came close to saving the shot. In 64th Kevin Kampl left the game in pain and was replaced by Nicolas Seiwald. Twenty minutes before the end of regulation time, the Bavarians managed to get back into the game and equalised from a counter-attack, after which Leroy Sane found himself alone in front of Leipzig’s goal.
Benjamin Šeško had his chance in 72nd minute, when he came on for Yussuf Poulsen. The Slovenian national team striker had two chances to score in stoppage time, first he was too short after a cross from Carvalho in front of Bayern’s goal, and just moments later the 20-year-old failed to beat visiting goalkeeper Ulreich who ran out of his own goal after a counter-attack. The teams were tied 2:2 at the final whistle of referee Fritz.
Leipzig will be in action again on Wednesday, when they host Manchester City in the Champions League, with Erling Haaland at the helm, who is very familiar with the German pitches. Both Leipzig and Bayern dropped down the standings after the match, overtaken by Stuttgart, who have been on a roll this season.
