Leipzig and Bayern have signed Bundesliga resumption tables


The Bundesliga resumed today, after a two-month break, with a fascinating battle between Leipzig, third, and Bayern Munich, leader, which ended in a draw (1-1). The ‘red bulls’ showed their strength at the Red Bull Arena, with only two draws in the championship, but they could not reduce their six-point deficit with respect to the Bavarians, who have five more. Freiburg is waiting for him to visit Wolfsburg tomorrow.

Julian Nagelsmann has lined up Yann Sommer, signed by Bayern on Thursday to cover Manuel Neuer’s long injury absence, against his former team, and the rookie Swiss goalkeeper did not have to intervene in a first half dominated by his new teammates despite the notable absence of Lucas Hernández and Sadio Mané.

Without their dominance being too great, Bayern managed to open the scoring in the 7th minute after an individual play by Serge Gnabry resulted in a cross shot which, deflected by Josko Gvardiol, ended up hitting the post.

Leipzig were unable to escape the Bavarians’ dominance despite Dani Olmo’s attempts and after half an hour VAR saved them from 0-1 by disallowing Leon Goretzka’s goal due to Matthijs de Ligt’s earlier offside ( 30′).

Choupo-Moting continues on a roll

But soon after Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting appeared to push to the net, anticipating the defense, a cross to the far post from Gnabry in one of the few occasions Bayern found space to attack (36′). It was the seventh Bundesliga goal, all of them in the last seven games, of the Cameroonian striker, who moved from substitute to important after Mané’s injury.

After the break the game changed. Leipzig had more of the ball and in the 51st minute equalized after a cross from the end line by André Silva that Dominik Szoboszlai headed home and pushed defender Marcel Halstenberg into the net in the goal mouth.

Leipzig rocked Bayern at times

The 1-1, with the first shot received by a rookie Sommer until then inactive, energized the Red Bull team, not only leveling the pulse but at times shaking Bayern. But the leader, who won the six previous days, reacted and, without clear opportunities in both areas, kept the pulse in one of the most complicated trips in the Bundesliga.
