RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann was disappointed that his team didn't manage to hold on to their lead in Tuesday's Champions League game against Olympique Lyon.

'Die Roten Bullen' were 0-2 up at the break thanks to penalty goals from Emil Forsberg and Timo Werner, but ultimately had to settle for a 2-2 draw after conceding twice in the last 45 minutes.

"We had two or three chances on the counter in the first half and could have gone even further ahead. In the second half, we lacked the same intensity that we started with," Nagelsmann told after the game and continued:

"We weren't moving it around freely in the second half and we lost our shape. It's important that we implement what we talk about before games so that we can continue to develop."

RB Leipzig were already through to the last 16 before Tuesday's game, and a draw was enough to see 'Die Roten Bullen' secure the top spot in Group G.
