We all know that, after an extremely long winter break, the Bundesliga leader RB Leipzig is all ready to play Union Berlin. It is believed that the league’s first game is going to be in 2020. Let’s break down the possible outcome of the year.
The last win that Leipzig saw was back in 2019. We all have to agree that the win was a bang! Leipzig banged a magnificant 3-1 win over Augsburg. Considering the past success, we have high hopes from the team. Last year, the team was able to win four out of five games. These wins definitely give the team a strong heads-up for the coming year.
How can we even forget the team’s amazing 22 shot win over Augsburg? The team managed to have seven on target and it was simply efficient on the sides of the field. They made 608 passes to account for 86% passing accuracy, along with 75% possession advantage.
On the other hand, Augsburg had just six shot attempts. Out of the six attempts, they managed to get only two on target. Augsburg made 206 passes with a passing accuracy of 60% and below. The team scored their first score in the eighth minute of the game. It was Florian Niederlechner whose shot got the score to the team.
The game further took the wins for Augsburg. Through the first half of the kept Leipzig at bay. During the time, Leipzig lost a lot of points. It would be fair to say that the was not at its best in the game.

The second half of the game was a literal game-changer. The Bundesliga leaders managed to turn the tables around. During the time, Bundesliga leaders pushed Augsburg just as the game began. It was Konrad Laimer who was able to remove the equalizer by the 68th minute of the game.
You are wrong if you things that Leipzig stopped here. They had merely begun! The team got a lead when Patrik Schick stopped a goal in the 79th minute. Also, immediately after 10 mins, Yussuf Poulsen managed to make a goal in the bottom right corner, giving a win to the team.
Also, during the time, Union Berlin dropped their last game of 2019. Despite the fact that they had around 17 shots attempts in the game. They would have managed to win, only if Fortuna didn’t come into the picture. In the 90th minute of the game, Fortuna drained a goal. This broke a tie in the game.
Throughout the game, the team managed to make a total of 453 passes. In addition, they also faced 20 fouls. During the closing moments of the game, the Union had a meltdown. It was an exaggeration of their goal that was drained by the end of the game.
Union Berlin’s hope was broken during the 90th minute of the game when Erik Thommy made a goal. During the closing moments of the game, Union failed to put up with the game. Union was not even able to budge through Fortuna’s defense.
Considering all that happened during the game, it can be concluded that Leipzig managed to grab another easy win. In the last five games, Bundesliga leaders have managed to remain untouched and undefeated. On the other hand, Union has had a chance to win one game and lose two-game straight.
Hoping that Leipzig would carry the same speed and momentum, just like during the end of 2019. If all goes according to the plan, we can expect that the team might grab a win again!
