Marcel Sabitzer scored a goal in the second half when RB Leipzig won against Arminia Bielefeld on Friday to keep up the pressure on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich before the table fight.
The second-placed Leipzig moved within a point Bayern, who play against Stuttgart on Saturday, and will face the reigning champions of the league on April 3rd.
« There were no fireworks because our opponents defended very deeply. But we were calm and did everything well « , said Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann.
In a draw against the Champions League pursuers Eintracht Frankfurt last time, Leipzig fell to four points.
Arminia goalkeeper Stefan Ortega saved Emil Forsberg in an excellent manner early on, before Marcel Halstenberg headed the ball shortly after half an hour.
Striker Christopher Nkunku almost scored the first goal just before the break, but Ortega threw his attempt the bar.
The dogged hosts had collapsed less than a minute in the second half when Dani Olmo came back and placed the ball for Sabitzer to get an easy tee shot.
It was a one-way street, as Leipzig had 75 percent of the ball and Bielefeld didn’t shoot a shot on goal and Ortega had to be vigilant again to prevent Nkunku from adding shine to the goal line.
« We could have decided the game earlier, it was unnecessarily exciting made, but rightly won over 90 minutes, « said Leipzig sports director Markus Kroesche to DAZN.
Bielefeld remains one point and one place above the relegation play-off site, which is currently occupied by Hertha Berlin.
