Leipzig down Freiburg in German Bundesliga

IANS  |  Berlin 

Newly-promoted Leipzig continued their fairy tale run after beating Freiburg 4-1 to reap their seventh straight win in the Bundesliga here.

The "Bulls" ensured a perfect start as Naby Keita had all the time and space to unleash a powerful shot from outside the box to mark the opening goal just two minutes into the game on Friday, reports Xinhua.

However, the hosts responded well and levelled the scores against the run of the play when Florian Niederlechner headed past Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi following a long cross into the box from Pascal Stenzel in the 15th minute.

The visitors continued their offensive performance and grabbed the lead in the 21st minute when Timo Werner capitalised on a pinpoint through from Diego Demme to round Freiburg custodian Alexander Schwolow for the 2-1 lead.

Leipzig were not done with the scoring in the first half as Werner wrapped up his brace after completing a fast break to make it 3-1 with a shot into the far post corner in the 35th minute.

After the restart, Leipzig had to wait until the 76th minute before Marcel Sabitzer rattled the outside of the post following a pass into his path by Emil Forsberg.

Sabitzer remained in the thick of things as he made the game safe for the visitors just three minutes later as he finished a counterattack into the near post corner from inside the box.

With this result, Leipzig extend their unbeaten run to 12 games and stay atop the standings with a six-point lead over Bayern Munich for the moment. Meanwhile, Freiburg remain at the 10th place.

"We staged a good performance and secured a commanding victory," Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick said after the match.
