Leipzig Win

FC Cologne vs RB Leipzig 01.06.2020

RB Leipzig have been sleeping on the job in the most critical phase of the season. They failed to take advantage of Borussia Dortmund’s slip up despite playing more than 24 hours after Dortmund lost at home to league leaders Bayern Munich. Having said that, they did play a significant part of the second half of the 2-2 home draw against Hertha with 10 men and in spite of their many drawn games, they are only two points behind Dortmund in third place. Another opportunity to cement their place and apply more pressure to Dortmund awaits them. We fully expect them to clean up their mess and run out winners.
