Leipzig frustrate Bayern as Dortmund sink Leverkusen

AFP, Berlin

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said his team were lucky not to lose after RB Leipzig held them to a 1-1 draw to stay top of the Bundesliga on Saturday.

In the second of two top-of-the-table clashes on Saturday, Leipzig survived a first half onslaught and equalised through an Emil Forsberg penalty to frustrate the Bayern and fuel hopes of a three-horse title race in the German league this season.

“We made too many mistakes in the second half. It could easily have been a defeat,” Neuer told Sky, after making several saves in a thrilling second half.

The draw leaves Bayern in third, while Leipzig now sit a point above Borussia Dortmund, who moved up to second with a thumping 4-0 win over top four rivals Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the day.

“It is too early to call us title candidates, but it is nice to be top of the table,” Forsberg told Sky.

It took Lewandowski just three minutes to grab the opener as Bayern dominated the first half in Leipzig.

Yet despite having had three times as much possession and twice as many shots, Bayern went in at half time with the scores level after Forsberg's penalty on the stroke of half time.

Bayern, who had themselves had a penalty retracted by VAR ten minutes earlier, were left stunned and allowed Leipzig back into the game after the break.

Both Timo Werner and Nordi Mukiele had chances for Leipzig, and both goalkeepers were forced to make flying saves.
