Two goals from Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai led to victory over Stuttgart by Leipzig (2-1) who became the main threat in the Bundesliga of Bayern Munich, who enjoyed only one point advantage.
After the clash at the Red Bull Arena that opened the eighteenth day of the German competition, Marco Rose’s team extended their excellent run. He achieved a new victory and entered the second position where Union Berlin fell, which is now third. Bayern’s margin of error has narrowed. After two consecutive draws, they host Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. Union Berlin will face the local derby against Hertha.
Leipzig were on a roll, where two flashes from Szoboszlai were enough to secure a new victory. In the 25th minute, the Hungarian opened the scoring with a superb free-kick from far outside the box that caught goalkeeper Florian Muller by surprise.
Early in the second half, the 22-year-old midfielder extended the home side’s lead with an accurate shot from the edge after receiving the ball from teammate Andre Silva.
Stuttgart, bidding to avoid relegation, reacted and closed the gap from a penalty for a handball converted by Chris Fuhrich. That complicated the final stage for Rose’s team and encouraged his opponent who lacked chances and, of those he had, accuracy. Leipzig threaten Bayern while Stuttgart could end the day in relegation.
