Goals by Frenchman Christopher Nkunku at minute 25 and by Spaniards Daniel “Dani” Olmo (54) and José Ángel Esmorís “Angeliño” (57) gave victory to the team coached by Italian Domenico Tedesco.

For the defeated, located in seventh place in the championship with 32 points, Tim Lemperle saved the honor already in discount (90 + 1).

Tedesco’s men now accumulate 34 units and provisionally occupy the fourth seat, in qualifying positions for the next European Champions League.

Union Berlin, with the same points, and Freiburg, with one less, play this weekend and could displace Leipzig from fourth place.
