Bayern Munich go seven clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a 1-0 over RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena.
The Bavarian giants took another step towards their ninth successive title and proved they are more than just a one man team with star striker Robert Lewandowski out.
Bayern’s opening goal came against the run of play as Leipzig were by far the better side in the first 45 minutes, Julian Nagelsmann’s team looked well drilled and produced some fantastic football through the likes of Christopher Nkunku and Amadou Haidara.

But it was the league leaders that proved that being clinical is key. With their first real chance of the game Thomas Müller cut the ball back to Leon Goretzka inside the box, and the midfielder made it count as he fired the ball past Péter Gulácsi.
The home side came out the traps quickly in the second half, but fluffed a series of golden chances to get themselves back into the game. Dani Olmo missed the best of the bunch as the Spaniard set himself up for a half volley inside the box, but missed the target all together.
There’s no denying that the Bundesliga new boys have come a long way in their short history, but today’s game showed they still have work to do if they want to topple serial winner Bayern Munich.
Next up for RB Leipzig is an away trip to Werder Bremen who are dangling above the bottom three. While Bayern have a midweek clash with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and then return to Bundeliga action against Union Berlin.
