Bundesliga: Nkunku's Free Kick Sets Up Leipzig's Win Over Ko

Leipzig vs Koln

Christopher Nkunku scored a free kick to set the foundation on which RB Leipzig built to earn a comfortable 3-0 victory over Koln on Friday and returned into the top four of the German Bundesliga.

In a cagey first half, Nkunku's stunning free-kick gave the home side the lead in the 25th minute - the Frenchman's 11th league goal of an impressive campaign.

Having broken the deadlock, Leipzig wrapped it up in the second half, with Dani Olmo arrowing home from outside the penalty area in the 54th minute and full back Angelino adding a third following a swift counter-attack three minutes later.

Leipzig had chances to add a fourth, with Nkunku denied by a fine save from Koln goalkeeper Marvin Schwabe at his near post, but it was the visitors who completed the scoring after Tim Lemperle headed a stoppage-time consolation.

The victory saw Leipzig move into fourth on 34 points from 22 matches, above Koln in seventh, with their rivals in action later in the weekend, as they continued their improvement under new coach Domenico Tedesco.
