The Bulls made quick work of Fortuna Düsseldorf. After scoring three goals in just over 15 minutes, Leipzig laid off the gas but still took care of business with a resounding 4-0 victory.

Despite all of the anti-Red Bull chants from the Düsseldorf fans, Laimer tapped another Leipzig goal home in the second half before the rain came back, dampening Düsseldorf’s spirits.
