RB Leipzig stumbled in their pursuit of the Bundesliga title as they were held to a 1-1 draw against Bayer Leverkusen at Red Bull Arena.
With reigning champions of Bundesliga, Bayern Munich having won 6-0 against TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday to move four points clear at the top, Julian Nagelsmann’s men could only cut the gap by one a day later.
Bayer Leverkusen took a first-half lead when Leon Bailey converted emphatically at the end of an incisive counter-attack at 29th minute of the match.
RB Leipzig response was swift and decisive, Patrik Schick heading in from Christopher Nkunku’s set-piece delivery at 32th minute of the match.
Neither side could find a winner in a dull second half, but the host know a victory at Wolfsburg next Saturday will move them level with Bayern, who do not play Augsburg until the following day.
