Leipzig top Bundesliga after simple win in Bremen

RB Leipzig ensured they will top the Bundesliga for another week with set piece goals from captain Willi Orban and Marcel Sabitzer setting the foundation for a 3-0 victory at Werder Bremen.

Leipzig had never previously won in Bremen but Orban's 13th minute header from a corner and Sabitzer's brilliant free kick had them cruising before half-time. Konrad Laimer was sent off for the guests midway through the second period before Marcelo Saracchi added a late third.

Julian Nagelsmann's team have 13 points from five games and lead by two points from second-placed champions Bayern Munich, who earlier routed Cologne 4-0.

Bremen could have moved into the European race with victory but remain 10th in a difficult season hampered by injuries.
