Bayer Leverkusen continues firmly at the top of the Bundesliga, as it turned a difficult away match in Leipzig into a 3-2 victory.

The match looked threatening to remain a 2-2 draw until extra time Piero Hincapié lifted the ball from the back post into the roof of the goal.

At the same time, the hit proved the mental strength of Die Werkself. Last week it scored the winning goal at Augsburg in stoppage time, and now it repeated the trick at dangerous Leipzig.

Captain Lukas Hradecky led a wild victory celebration when the referee Matthias Jöllenbeck whistled to end the match.

Bayern Munich, which is involved in the championship, will play its own match of the round on Sunday, when it will face Werder Bremen at home.

Having played two games less, Bayern is seven points behind Leverkusen.

Toney came back

The Premier League saw a confusing coincidence as Brentford beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 in a six-point struggle.

The captain of the Bees was released from an eight-month suspension Ivan Toney. The star striker scored a valuable 1-1 equalizer for his team with a wonderful free kick in the 19th minute.

27-year-old Toney received his severe punishment because he had violated the strict betting regulations of professional footballers.

At the end of April 2023, just before the start of his spell, he scored from a free kick against Nottingham Forest. At that time, it was Toney’s last shot on goal before the start of the suspension.

On Saturday, it was Forest again – and again Toney scored from a free kick.

This time it was the first shot after the suspension.
