Leipzig fails championship race: draw with Hoffenheim

Leipzig fails championship race: draw with Hoffenheim

RB Leipzig left two important points behind in the Bundesliga title fight. Marcel Sabitzer & Co. did not go beyond a goalless draw on Friday evening at the start of the 29th round at home against 1899 Hoffenheim. This means that the second in the table cannot put any pressure on the captain, Bayern Munich, who, on Saturday, entered the Oliver Glasner Club Wolfsburg stadium with a reassuring four-point difference.

When stoppage time was already over, Yusef Poulsen hit his head after a corner kick (96). Leipziger’s euphoria continued with the last-minute win only for a short time, with video evidence showing a light handball by the 26-year-old Dane so the goal was not counted. Sabitzer played with the hosts and almost scored the winning goal in the 65th minute, his shot was just inches missing, and goalkeeper Oliver Baumann was hit.

Hoffenheim’s side fought for a second consecutive zero after appearing at home against Bayer Leverkusen. Central defender Stefan Bosch as well as Christoph Baumgartner and Florian Gerlich, who were substituted in the 56th minute, played a part in it. Hoffenheim initially improved to 11th and extended their lead over the relegation spot to six points.
