Timo Werner repeats double trick as Leipzig go third in Germany

Timo Werner again struck twice to help his team move third in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 win over second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Leipzig forward Timo Werner again struck twice to help his team move third in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 win over second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday.

Werner played a one-two with Marcel Sabitzer before firing inside the far post in the third minute and he grabbed his second in first-half injury time, after Yussuf Poulsen set him up for a tap-in.

Lars Stindl had come close to equalizing for Gladbach, Peter Gulacsi coming to Leipzig’s rescue with a fine save, while Thorgan Hazard was blocked from the rebound at the last by Ibrahima Konate.

Alassane Plea and Raffael went close in the second half for the visitors.

The result leaves Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund seven points clear after the 13th round.
