RB Leipzig corrected Cologne 6-0 early Saturday evening for the 9th day of the Bundesliga, a success which allows Marco Rose's players to stay in contact with Bayern, leader in the standings before the Leverkusen match on Sunday. Leipzig made the difference in the first period with a double from Lois Openda (40th and 45th 3) and goals from Timo Werner (15th) and David Raum (43rd). Benjamin Sesko (88th) and Christoph Baumgartner (90th 2) added to the bill for Cologne.

With 20 points, Leipzig remains three points behind Bayern (23), who temporarily regained the leadership position after their demonstration against promoted Darmstadt (8-0) on Saturday afternoon.
At the end of the 9th day, Bayer Leverkusen (22 points) has the opportunity to regain its first place in the event of a victory on Sunday (5:30 p.m.) at home against Freiburg, while Borussia Dortmund (20 pts) travels to Frankfurt ( 3:30 p.m.), and can return to level with Bayern if they win, one week from the “Klassiker” at the Westfalenstadion.
