Leipzig knock Bayern Munich from top after romp at Freiburg

Lukas Klostermann of RB Leipzig, Baptiste Santamaria of SC Freiburg, Christopher Nkunku of RB Leipzig and Kevin Kampl of RB Leipzig battle for the ball during the Bundesliga match between Sport-Club Freiburg and RB Leipzig at Schwarzwald-Stadion on March 6, 2021 in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

RB Leipzig went top of the Bundesliga on Saturday with a 3-0 romp at Freiburg to usurp previous leaders Bayern Munich, who later host Dortmund in Germany's 'Klassiker'.

Christopher Nkunku, Alexander Sorloth and Emil Forsberg scored the goals in Freiburg which lifted Leipzig one point ahead of Bayern, who are at home to Dortmund (1730GMT).

Leipzig impressed in their final tune-up before facing Liverpool in Budapest next Wednesday in the last 16 of the Champions League having lost the first leg 2-0.

Patrik Schick scored late as Bayer Leverkusen beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

The result was more bad news for Gladbach, who face Manchester City in the Champions League Round of 16 in 10 days.

They tumbled to 10th place and have now gone six games without a win.
