Rose’s revenge as Leipzig beats Dortmund, Bayern held again

Berlin, Leipzig’s new coach Marco Rose oversaw a 3-0 rout of Borussia Dortmund, the club which fired him at the end of last season, and Bayern Munich was held Saturday to its third straight draw in the Bundesliga with a 2-2 draw against Stuttgart.

Serhou Guirassy scored an injury-time penalty for Stuttgart in another blow for Bayern ahead of its Champions League group-stage game against Barcelona on Tuesday. Bayern drew its previous league games against Union Berlin and Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Rose takes Leipzig to Real Madrid on Wednesday in the Champions League after claiming a refreshing victory over Dortmund on his Leipzig debut, reports AP.

Rose steered Leipzig to what was just its second win in six Bundesliga games. Rose was appointed by Leipzig on Thursday to take over from the fired Domenico Tedesco.

Will Orban got Rose’s team off to a great start with a header after a corner in the sixth and Leipzig maintained its intensity until Dominik Szoboszlai made it 2-0 with a brilliant strike from distance before the break.

But Amadou Haidara sealed Leipzig’s win in the 84th after Szoboszlai won the ball from Thomas Meunier and fed it to Timo Werner to set him up.

Bayern was unable to profit much from Dortmund’s slip, though it looked fine when Mathys Tel opened the scoring in the 36th. Alphonso Davies cut the ball back for the French teenager’s first Bundesliga goal.
