RB Leipzig draw opens door for Bayern to extend league lead

Leipzig were held to a 2-2 draw at Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday, opening the way for Bayern Munich to extend their lead at the top.

Greece defender Konstantinos Stafylidis put Augsburg ahead in the 19th minute with a brilliant strike from 30 meters (yards) out and almost scored a late winner.

Forward Timo Werner equalised in the 25th after being set up by midfielder Naby Keita, arguably Leipzig's best player this season. It was Werner's 14th goal of the campaign.

Marvin Compper headed Liepzig ahead from a corner early in the second half, before fellow defender Martin Hinteregger equalised in the 60th.

Leipzig, who are playing their first season in the Bundesliga, moved four points behind Bayern, who are away to Cologne on Saturday.

Augsburg are in 12th place.

Also on Saturday, third-placed Borussia Dortmund -- which are nine points behind Leipzig -- play Bayer Leverkusen at home.
