Bayern beats Leipzig 5-4 in Bundesliga, Ingolstadt relegated

Arjen Robben scored a superb solo goal in the 95th-minute to seal Bayern Munich's dramatic 5-4 comeback win at RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga's electric top-of-the-table clash on Saturday.

Hoeness says he has already personally told Leipzig's billionaire backer, Red Bull's co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz, that RB can only break Bayern's monopoly of the Bundesliga with more experience in their ranks.

They love a late one, don't they?

Thiago Alcantara pulled one back for Bayern, but the visitors' defense was again made to look poor when Werner scored his second - this time through Tom Starke's legs from a hard angle.

The East German outfit opened the scoring after just 2 minutes via Austrian midfielder Marcel Sabitzer before Robert Lewandowski replied from the spot ten minutes later.

"It's a dream game for us and we have nothing to lose".

Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed reports of a rift between himself and veteran French winger Franck Ribery.

Hamilton fastest as Mercedes step up the pace
Ferrari and Mercedes may be the front-runners again, but Red Bull expect to be close in pursuit with a heavily-updated auto while local hero Fernando Alonso has more modest hopes.

The home side also produced a fantastic fielding performance, including a brilliant catch by Axar Patel to dismiss Robin Uthappa. In the sixteenth over, Maxwell hit the wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav for consecutive sixes, but was then outfoxed by the bowler.

It's not even about Popovich's game-to-game adjustments, given he's viewed as one of, if not the greatest coach of all time. The Interstate 10 rivals will meet again for Game 4 at the Toyota Center late Sunday night at 8pm (Monday 8 am in Manila).

Injury-prone Germany defender Holger Badstuber is looking for a new club after employers Bayern Munich said on Friday they will not extend his contract following his loan to Schalke.

Lahm, who will retire after Bayern's final game of the season next Saturday against Freiburg, expects Leipzig to become worthy rivals for the Bavarians in years to come. "Leipzig have absolutely deserved to be where they are now".

The World-Cup victor would be a good acquisition for Mauricio Pochettino as he would be solid in a back three defensive line-up that the Spurs manager has been favouring for much of this campaign. For a long time we seemed to be winning against the best German team that oozed quality.

With Bayern and Leipzig already assured direct Champions League places, the battle rages on for the third automatic place after third-placed Dortmund drew 1-1 at Augsburg.

Unfortunately for Leipzig they just weren't up to the task in an utterly mental match in East Germany.

Danish striker Yussuf Poulsen netted Leipzig's third on 47 minutes when his shot wrong-footed Bayern's third-choice goalkeeper Tom Starke after clipping Alonso's boot. Simple and effective means Forsberg now has a hefty 18 Bundesliga assists this season. Questions will be asked of Bayern's defence, which shipped four goals for the first time since losing 4-1 at Wolfsburg in January 2015.
