Leipzig fails in the title fight

RB Leipzig made a potentially fatal mistake in the Bundesliga title fight. The team of coach Julian Nagelsmann did not get more than 0-0 at home against TSG Hoffenheim and remain behind Bayern Munich with 61 points. The front runner (65) can extend his lead at VfL Wolfsburg to seven points on Saturday. RB coach Nagelsmann had decided somewhat surprisingly for Emil Forsberg in the storm center; the Norwegian Alexander Sörloth, who scored double goals in the 4-1 game against Werder Bremen last matchday, was only on the bench. Leipzig had a lot more from the game for long stretches, but rarely came dangerous before the opposing goal. Nagelsmann’s ex-club Hoffenheim did not win the fifth league game in a row, but scored an important success with the point. With 32 points, however, there is still a risk of relegation.
