Bundesliga round-up: RB Leipzig leapfrog Bayern Munich with Timo Werner double
Last Updated: 02/12/18 9:41pm
Timo Werner scored twice as RB Leipzig climbed above Bayern Munich into third with a 2-0 home win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Germany forward needed only three minutes to open the scoring against the second-placed Foals by turning home Marcel Sabitzer's assist and, in first-half stoppage time, he tucked away Yussuf Poulsen's square pass to give Leipzig all three points before the break.
Eintracht Frankfurt, previously unbeaten in seven, had a timely opportunity to reclaim their lofty position as they hosted Wolfsburg in Sunday's late game, but things did not go to plan for the Eagles.
A bright start for Adi Hutter's Eintracht saw Filip Kostic fire over from a good position. However, with 31 minutes gone, Admir Mehmedi fired the Wolves ahead with a cool finish to a counter-attack.
Frankfurt kept pushing but Wolfsburg sealed a 2-1 victory when Daniel Ginczek struck in the 68th minute to confirm back-to-back wins for Bruno Labbadia's side, who would concede a late goal from Luka Jovic.
