(EFE) – Leipzig, with a goal from Frenchman Christopher Nkunku, met again this Saturday with the victory by defeating Bayer Leverkusen (1-0), on the nineteenth round of the German Bundesliga, which Bayern Munich dominate.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side, beaten seven days ago in Mainz and having only scored three points in one of the last four games, edged out a downward opponent, who conceded their second consecutive setback.
The duel between the second and third placed in the German competition was marked by the balance that Nkunku broke at the beginning of the second half when he took advantage of a commotion in the area to hook a shot from the edge of the area and beat the Finn Lukas Hradecky.
Peter Bosz’s team, which fell to fourth place behind Eintracht Frankfurtt, tried to react but was unable to beat Hungarian Peter Gulascsi’s goal. Chilean Charles Aránguiz started and Argentine Lucas Alario entered at 81.
The victory places Leipzig in second place, seven points behind the leaders, Bayern Munich, and with five points of income compared to Eintracht.
