RB Leipzig picked up a fine 2-1 win over Augsburg in the final match day of the Bundesliga season at WWK Arena yesterday.

Timo Werner scored twice to secure the three points for his side. The German striker has cemented his place in the history books by becoming the club’s record goal scorer. 

With 95 goals, Werner leaves Leipzig as the club’s record goalscorer, overtaking Daniel Frahn.

Werner had given Leipzig the lead on the 28th minute. However, Vargas scored the leveler for Augsburg on the 72nd minute. The game seemed destined for a draw but Werner had the final say on the 80th minute. 

The German is set to join Chelsea next month and he will be delighted to have signed-off on a high.

Meanwhile, Augsburg will be disappointed to have come away with nothing from the game. At one point, they were down to ten men when Philipp Max was given a red card for his challenge on Mukiele.

However, the decision was overturned by VAR after careful consideration.

Leipzig have finished the season in third place and they will be reasonably satisfied. 

Augsburg came into the game winless in their last six home games and they would have desperate to win this one. It would have been a worthy end for them.

However, Werner’s brilliance has now extended their winless home run to seven games.
