RB Leipzig go top of Bundesliga after win

RB Leipzig provisionally moved top of the Bundesliga as a 2-0 victory over Werder Bremen on Saturday lifted them a point ahead of Bayern Munich. Buoyed by their 3-2 midweek win over Manchester United that earned them a place in the Champions League round of 16, the hosts dominated Werder from the start. Leipzig, who have now won all six of their home games this season, earned a penalty in the 26th minute and Marcel Sabitzer converted it. Dani Olmo completed a quick Leipzig passing move with a clever dribble on the edge of the box and his low shot in the 41st gave them a two-goal cushion. Leipzig moved top on 24 points with Bayern, who play Union Berlin later on Saturday, on 23.
