1. FC Kaiserslautern hauled themselves away from the relegation zone with a 2-0 victory over RB Leipzig on Matchday 14.

Leipzig dominated proceedings early on, launching a wave of attacks down the left wing. They were unable to break down a solid Kaiserslautern back line, however, and were punished on 37 minutes as the visitors took the lead against the run of play. Chris Löwe's ball found Mateusz Klich, who slotted home from inside the area.

The second half continued in the same vein, with Leipzig exercising complete hegemony over the ball, but failing to find gaps in the visitors' defence. With just over twenty minutes to play, Kaiserslautern struck ruthlessly on the counter attack, which ended with substitute Maurice Deville knocking the ball in from close range.

The win ended the Red Devils' four game losing streak, while Leipzig dropped points for the first time since September, and missed out on the chance to return to the top of the table after seeing SC Freiburg move past them 24 hours earlier.
