On Saturday, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich faced each other at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in Bundesliga’s Matchday 4. It wasn’t an exciting match in terms of goals, but it had some quality. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, with goals from Emil Forsberg for the home team and Robert Lewandowski, always him, for the visitors.
With the result, the Bulls continue to lead the competition, with ten points won. The Bavarians, in turn, reached eight points and are in the third place. For the next round, both teams play on Saturday. Bayern host Cologne at home, while RB Leipzig face Werder Bremen away from home.
Even playing away, the Bavarians opened the scoring early in the game, with only three minutes on the clock. Thomas Muller was the architect of the play, as he left Robert Lewandowski in the face of goalkeeper Gulacsi with a beautiful through ball and the number 9 did not waste the opportunity. 0-1 Bayern.
In the 38th minute, Bayern had a penalty in their favor, but the referee turned it down after checking the play in the VAR. In the first half additional time, it was RB Leipzig’s turn to have a penalty awarded after Lucas Hernandez fouled Poulsen inside the box. Emil Forsberg was the taker and converted it from the spot, seconds away from the end of the first half. 1-1.
After the break, the game kept up with the balanced pace, with both teams creating opportunities to score the winning goal, but to no avail. Timo Werner had the clearest opportunity into the game on 89 minutes, as he received the ball at the 6-yard box, but was denied by a brilliant save from the goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. All square at the end of the match.
