Leon Bailey brace stuns Bayern

30 November 2019

Leon Bailey struck twice as 10-man Bayer Leverkusen shocked Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich with a 2-1 win at the Allianz Arena.

The defeat leaves Bayern down in fourth place and was Hans-Dieter Flick’s first as caretaker manager.

Bailey scored a first-half brace either side of Thomas Muller’s equaliser and the visitors hung on for the three points despite Jonathan Tah’s red card nine minutes from full-time.

Leipzig lead the way at the top of the table after holding off a spirited comeback away to bottom club Paderborn.

Patrik Schick, Marcel Sabitzer and Timo Werner had Leipzig three goals to the good inside half an hour but Streli Mamba and Klaus Gjasula struck after the break as
Julian Nagelsmann’s side saw out the game to win 3-2.

Elsewhere in Germany, Hoffenheim and Fortuna played out a 1-1 draw as Andrej Kramaric’s early opener was cancelled out by Rouwen Hennings, while goals from Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard were enough for Borussia Dortmund to beat Hertha 2-1 despite having Mats Hummels sent off.
