The German side are alternate in Group F with nine points, one behind leaders Real and three ahead of Shakhtar Donetsk, who they face in their final group game coming week to secure a top- two spot.

Real Madrid have formerly qualified for the last 16, with director Carlo Ancelotti resting several regular starters and his side dominated by a youthful Leipzig side.

" We conceded two pretensions from two set pieces and also the game was the kind of game they wanted, playing on thecounter-attack, they're veritably good at that," Ancelotti said after the match. “ We controlled the game, but suffered on the counter.

Those two pretensions we conceded made it the game they wanted."

13 twinkles into the game Josco Guardiol put the home side ahead after a pellet title by Thibaut Courtois after a pellet title.

With the European titleholders still recovering from the early shock, Leipzig extended their supereminent five twinkles latterly when David Raum tried a pass in the box but the ball went into the path of a protector, Christopher Nkunku, who replied snappily to rifle the ball home. outside the bar.

Leipzig had two further great chances, but Amadou Haidara's strike from the edge of the box was saved by Courtois and Nkuku beat the Madrid keeper after beating the ball with a close- range shot but ended up in a tight corner as he tried to find an empty net.

" I suppose we came out veritably confused at the launch of the game and were caught napping against a platoon that's veritably attacking," Courtois said after the match." Coach Ancelotti advised us before the game that they're a veritably aggressive platoon at home, but we still started sluggishly and paid the price.

"Our performance at the launch of the match is inferior, we can not concede two pretensions from corners at the launch of the match."
