In the first match of the second half of the German championship, the team of Leipzig faced the top-placed Bayer from Leverkusen, offering an outstanding resistance to the opponent but ultimately succumbing with a score of 2:3. Benjamin Šeško started the match in the starting lineup, while Kevin Kampl was on the bench as a substitute.
The home team had a dream start to the game, taking the lead in the 7th minute with a goal from Xavi Simons. In the next action, Šeško attempted a shot but was unable to beat Lukas Hradecky at the club level. The Red Bulls went into halftime with a narrow lead.
The visiting team, unbeaten in this season, leveled the score early in the second half through Nathan Tella, but Lois Openda quickly responded with a goal on the counter-attack in the 56th minute. Once again, in the first action after the goal, the Slovenian international attempted a shot, but this time, the Finnish national team goalkeeper stopped it. In the 63rd minute, German defender Jonathan Tah leveled the score again with a precise header. Šeško left the game fifteen minutes before the end of regular time, and in the same window, Kampl got his chance. The leading team of the German Bundesliga completed the comeback in injury time when Piero Hincapie scored.
Leipzig will seek their first win in the new calendar year next weekend when they face the third-placed team Stuttgart away.
