Bayern came from behind to beat Leipzig 5-4

Stop buying kids Bayern boss warns RB Leipzig

Robben, 33, then proved he had the legs to sprint clear of the tiring home defence as he capped a superb run with the victor.

It was the first time Bayern took the lead having fallen behind after 65 seconds at Leipzig's Red Bull Arena.

They love a late one, don't they?

"It was a very open game, just like we expected", he said. There was some very attacking football. "Leipzig have absolutely deserved to be where they are now".

Leipzig's Timo Werner celebrates after scoring during the German first division Bundesliga soccer match between RB Leipzig and FC Bayern Munich in Leipzig, Germany, Saturday, May 13, 2017.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti: "It was an incredible match".

After six seasons with Bayern, it seems Boateng may be looking for a new challenge as he looks for the Die Roten board to clarify his position in the team so he can assess his situation ahead of the summer transfer window. Leipzig started strongly, but we were better in the end.

Leipzig have been the surprise package this season and will finish second despite the loss after Borussia Dortmund could only draw with Augsburg.

"For them, this is only the start of a great period".

Lahm, who will retire after Bayern's final game of the season next Saturday against Freiburg, expects Leipzig to become worthy rivals for the Bavarians in years to come. We may have failed to take points today, but we've won much, much more: hearts and sympathy.

Despite the title being no longer at stake, the match was being hyped up as a chance for the newcomers to the league to assert that they are capable of competing with the best team in Germany. But it's not enough to do a good job for 75 minutes.

Third-placed Borussia Dortmund drew 1-1 at Augsburg, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring his 29th Bundesliga goal of the season.

Thiago closed the gap to a single goal once more before Werner's second made it 4-2 to the hosts.

Danish striker Yussuf Poulsen netted Leipzig's third on 47 minutes when his shot wrong-footed Bayern's third-choice goalkeeper Tom Starke after clipping Alonso's boot.

Bayern have never been a side short of goals or confidence, but they needed a miracle with just minutes remaining - something they found. Questions will be asked of Bayern's defence, which shipped four goals for the first time since losing 4-1 at Wolfsburg in January 2015.
