Video Details

Watch full Matchday 28 highlights between Hannover and RB Leipzig.

- Leipzig's Bayern tamers changed five players from the win over the record meister. Timo Werner and Emil Forsberg among those recalled as starters, as Naby Keita and co. faced out-of-form Hannover.

They were opened up again on 60 Minutes. Jean-Kévin Augustin's delicious pass. Werner provider. For Forsberg's first goal in the Bundesliga it open play, for one day short of a whole calendar year.

A one goal half time lead, but near a total control. Underlined on 54 minutes by a clever corner routine. Keita's cross, seized on by Captain Willi Orban. In his 50th game in the Bundesligo. This, his third league goal of the campaign.

But few teams do set plays as well as Hannover. Salif Sané, always a threat. 19 to play, and the home team right back in it. At this stage, half their 34 goals this season had come via dead balls.

Barely five minutes later, and Leipzig reclaim the two goal lead. Another goal of quality. Another goal made by Werner. This time supplying Yussuf Poulsen. His first goal since November, and a home win over Hannover, who brought on top scorer Niclas Fullkrug. His diving header had the home team back to, again, just a single goal behind.

At this stage, to play 12 more minutes in a pulsating second half. And they though they'd saved the game on 82 minutes. Fullkrug, again. Que wild celebrations, cut short by the video assistants. And referee Guido Winkmann deciding Fullkrug was just offside from Pirmin Schwegler's initial shot. Heartbreak for Hannover, as Leipzig claim the win. But this, in the end, was a very close run thing.
