Poulsen double sends Leipzig into third place

RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen scored once in either half to help his team beat toothless Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 on Sunday and move into third place in the Bundesliga ahead of champions Bayern Munich.

The Denmark striker chipped in after 26 minutes and added a second in the 85th, pouncing on a Bayer Leverkusen mistake.

Teammate Lukas Klostermann scored Leipzig’s second goal in the 68th minute as they earned their second straight win and stretched their unbeaten run to 10 league games.

Leverkusen keeper Lukas Hradecky denied Timo Werner from point blank range late in the game but Leipzig counterpart Peter Gulacsi was equally effective in palming a Leon Bailey free kick wide, the visitors’ first shot on target, after 76 minutes.

Leipzig are now on 22 points after 11 games with second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach on 23 and leaders Borussia Dortmund on 27 after twice coming from a goal down to beat Bayern 3-2 on Saturday. The champions are fourth on 20.
