Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig Full Match Reports

RB Leipzig secured a thrilling 3-2 victory over the 10 men of Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, marking their fifth win in the last six encounters against Die Schwarzgelben.

The match kicked off with incredible intensity, and Edin Terzić’s defensive line struggled to cope. Thomas Meunier, who had played just six minutes this season, faltered against Xaver Schlager’s pass, allowing Loïs Openda to surge forward. Mats Hummels impeded him with a cynical challenge, earning a red card just 15 minutes into the game. Despite the numerical disadvantage, Die Roten Bullen continued their offensive onslaught. Gregor Kobel thwarted Mohamed Simakan’s powerful strike, and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens was substituted for Niklas Süle to reinforce the defense.

Die Schwarzgelben faced relentless pressure, with Amadou Haidara testing Kobel with an ambitious strike and Benjamin Henrichs squandering a clear opportunity. As Dortmund tried to withstand the assault, Kobel received a warning for time wasting within the first half-hour. However, Ramy Bensebaini headed in from David Raum’s corner delivery, complicating the hosts’ task. Despite this setback, the hosts resiliently kept the game close, and Süle capitalized on Julian Brandt’s cross to equalize in the sixth minute of added time in the first half.

Just nine minutes into the second half, the visitors regained the lead. Christoph Baumgartner, having missed two earlier chances, seized a tap-in opportunity after Xavi Simons’ initial effort was parried by Kobel. Dortmund stayed within striking distance, with Nico Schlotterbeck impressively denying Simakan and Baumgartner’s effort bouncing everywhere but the net.

Yussuf Poulsen sealed Leipzig’s victory in the 91st minute, deceiving Schlotterbeck and delivering a clinical finish. Nonetheless, Niclas Füllkrug headed home from Brandt’s corner, and Süle’s deflected strike narrowly missed the target as Die Roten Bullen secured consecutive wins, extending their lead over Dortmund to four points. Die Schwarzgelben, on the other hand, suffered two consecutive damaging defeats, following their elimination from the DFB Pokal in the previous outing.

Man of the Match: David Raum (RB Leipzig).
