Gnabry’s 45-metre stunner helps Hoffenheim thrash RB Leipzig 4-0
RB Leipzig stalled on 26 points in the Bundesliga on Saturday (December 2) as they were beaten 4-0 by Hoffenheim.
Bayern Munich beat Hanover to increase their league lead to 32 points.
Hoffenheim opened their score in the 13th minute with a goal from Nadiem Amiri and led without further score to the break.
After seven minutes of the second half Serge Gnabry, formerly of Arsenal and Werder Bremen and now on loan from Bayern Munich, scored his first goal for Hoffenheim, poking the ball past goalkeeper Peter Gulasci to give Hoffenheim a 2-0 lead.
Just 10 minutes later Gnabry did his parent team Bayern another favour by scoring the goal of the match and a highlight of the weekend. Near the halfway line he lofted the ball past goalkeeper Gulasci to hurt Leipzig with a 3-0 lead.
Mark Luth punished Gulascsi for failing to clear the ball and scored in the 87th minute to seal the 4-0 win.
Hoffenheim are fifth in the table with 23 points and Leipzig remain in second place just one point ahead of Schalke.
