Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - RB Leipzig enter the Bundesliga winter break on top of the table after staging a remarkable comeback to defeat Augsburg 3-1 at home.

Leipzig fell behind after just eight minutes when Augsburg forward Florian Niederlechner found the back of the net.

Leipzig then went on the offensive and off their 16th attempt on target, Konrad Laimer found the inside top corner to draw level on 68 minutes.

The hosts took the lead with just 10 minutes to go when Czech forward Patrik Schick headed home his third goal in as many games after he was left unmarked.

Danish striker Yussuf Poulsen then put the result beyond doubt in the 89th minute when he converted a pass from Timo Werner.

Meanwhile, Dutch teenager Joshua Zirkzee continued his dream run for Bayern Munich as he gave the defending champions a late lead in their 2-0 win against Wolfsburg.

Having scored on his Bundesliga debut in their 3-1 win at Freiburg, Zirkee, 18, fired home a Thomas Mueller pass with his first touch after coming off the bench at the Allianz Arena.

Germany winger Serge Gnabry then made it two just before the final whistle to secure three points,

The win came at a price as defender Javi Martinez was taken off the field. Bayern already have centre-backs Niklas Suele and Lucas Hernandez sidelined due to serious injuries.

Schalke made it to fifth position after their 2-2 draw at home to Freiburg, who converted two second-half penalties. The Royal Blues took the lead through midfielder Suat Serdar.

Freiburg equalised early in the second half when Germany striker Nils Petersen converted a penalty. Their South Korean midfielder Kwon Chang-Hoon then hit the post just before Freiburg winger Vincenzo Grifo chipped home a penalty attempt to put them 2-1 up with 23 minutes left.

However, Schalke claimed a point when substitute Ahmed Kutucu found his target from the edge of the area.

The result leaves Schalke level on 30 points with Borussia Dortmund, who lost 2-1 at Hoffenheim on Friday.

Cologne left the relegation zone with a 1-0 win at home to Werder Bremen, who dropped to the bottom three, thanks to a first-half goal by Colombia striker Jhon Cordoba.

After three straight defeats, Leverkusen managed a 1-0 win at Mainz as Argentina striker Lucas Alario scored a 90th-minute winner. Leverkusen played the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Brazilian defender Wendell was sent off for a second yellow card.
