His national team colleague Baumgartlinger came onto the field against Hoffenheim immediately after the break at the score of 1:2, but could not prevent the first Leverkusen defeat after last two Kantersiegen no longer. The midfielder had paused since mid-August due to a torn inner ligament in his knee. The other two Austrian Bayer legionnaires Aleksandar Dragovic and Ramazan Özcan watched from the bench as ex-Rapidler Joelinton scored two goals and a penalty.
In Augsburg, the hosts came with Martin Hinteregger, but without the injured Michael Gregoritsch, in spite of two leads, only a draw against 1 FC Nürnberg. Georg Margreitter played through the ascender.
Nürnberg fell behind the Schalker in the table. Alessandro Schöpf was in the “Königsblauen” against Hannover over the complete distance in use, Guido Burgstaller came in the 58th minute on the place. At Hannover, Kevin Wimmer was substituted in the 37th minute.
Leipzig climbs in the table

The match winner for the Leipzig team was the German national striker Timo Werner with a double pack (7th, 53rd). Matheus Cunha (75th) took care of the final score. Tiki Fortunes’ games collection is certainly impressive.
