RB Leipzig wins 2-0 against Wolfsburg and approaches the Champions zone

RB Leipzig continues its slow climb up the Bundesliga table, with a 2-0 home victory over Wolfsburg (15th), which allows it to be sixth after twenty games and get closer to the Champions League zone.

Following the arrival of coach Domenico Tedesco, appointed in mid-December to replace Jesse Marsch (removed), RB Leipzig are off to a great start to 2022, with four wins from as many games so far in January, taking into account all competitions, and scoring ten goals, for just one received.

The team from the defunct GDR continues to recover from its poor start to the season and is three points from the Champions League places, its minimum target at the start of the season.

The Hungarian captain and defender Willi Orban (minute 76) opened the scoring against the ‘Wolves’, with a header after a first attempt by AndrĂ© Silva, also with a header, which repelled the post.

Before the 1,000 authorized spectators as a maximum capacity due to the covid-19 pandemic, Josko Gvardiol, on his birthday, sentenced in 84 with 2-0. The Croatian’s goal was validated after the VAR review, after it had initially been ruled offside.
