Bayern München coach Julian Nagelsmann beat his former employer as the German champions claimed a 4-1 win against RB Leipzig at Red Bull Arena.


Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring from the penalty spot 12 minutes into the game after Kevin Kampl was ruled to have handled the ball in the box.

Serge Gnabry had to come off with an injury just before the break and was replaced by Jamal Musiala, who doubled the lead just two minutes into the second half, firing the ball past Peter Gulacsi after a low cross from Alphonso Davies.

RB Leipzig thought they had equalised soon after when André Silva slotted home after being teed up by Dani Olmo, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Instead it was Bayern who went up and scored another one, with Leroy Sané making it 3-0 at the back post after a cross from Musiala in the 54th minute.

Konrad Laimer then pulled one back for Leipzig with a fantastic long range effort, but it wasn't enough for Leipzig, who conceded a fourth goal in injury time as second-half substitute Eric-Maxim Choupo Moting rounded off the win for Bayern.

The result means that Bayern are second in the Bundesliga, two points behind league leaders Wolfsburg, while Leipzig are 10th, having taken just three points from their first four Bundesliga outings under new coach Jesse Marsch.
