DThe outward weakness of RB Leipzig is increasingly becoming a chronic problem for the Saxons. Without much resistance, the Leipzig had beaten 0-3 at SC Freiburg and thus missed the jump in second place. It was the fourth RB competitive defeat in strangers in series. Nils Petersen (12), Luca Waldschmidt (45. + 1 / penalty) and Mike Frantz (52.) scored for the Breisgauer, who were successful again after four games without a win.
Before 23,800 spectators in the Black Forest Stadium happened in the initial phase not too much, but then surprised the Freiburg with a near-perfect counterattack. First, Christian Günter failed to RB goalkeeper Peter Gulasci, the rebound recycled Petersen. It was the attacker's third goal of the season.
On the other side national player Timo Werner could not overcome the Freiburg goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow (19.). After that, Leipzig pushed for the equalizer. Only after half an hour could the sports club free themselves from the pressure. Freiburg put RB on the defensive several times in embarrassment, Gulacsi had in a long-range shot Waldschmidts show all his skills (31).
The second SC hit was in the air. How the goal then fell was controversial. After a long video study, referee Tobias Welz (Wiesbaden) decided on penalty in favor of the Freiburg. RB defender Dayot Upamecano had briefly drawn Frantz. Waldschmidt did not miss the chance and met for the fourth time this season. Shortly after the break, things got even more bitter for Leipzig. Frantz exploited a strong cross from Lukas Kübler. Petersen would have almost increased shortly afterwards (59.). Leipzig was shockingly harmless. Only in the 66th minute came the team by a header from Upamecano once again to a chance.
