SÖRLOTH!

Alexander Sörloth almost finishes it with a towering header, but again Kobel pulls out a brilliant reaction save down to his right.

ANTON!!

What a chance for the home side! Centre-back Waldemar Anton somehow popped up as a centre-forward and onto the end of Endo's pass, but Gulacsi somehow denies him from close range!

FINAL THROW OF THE DICE

Stuttgart make one last attempt to turn it around with forward Mateo Klimowicz on for defender Marc-Oliver Kempf. Matarazzo has used all three of his substitution windows.

GOOD READING FOR RB

As it stands, Leipzig will be going top overnight. Bayern host Mainz tomorrow.

OLMO WITH THE BREAKTHROUGH!

It's a Spanish co-production for Leipzig that finally does for Stuttgart. Sabitzer lays it out left to Angelino, whose cross is deflected off the head of Stenzel to the far post where Dani Olmo coming in and he volleys his effort home past Kobel.

HAIDARA

A great through ball finds Amadou Haidara in behind, but the midfielder makes a bit of a mess of his shot and drags it well wide.

BACK UNDERWAY

No changes for either team as we resume for the second half. Julian Nagelsmann is normally not afraid to shuffle his pack at the break, so he must be pleased with what he's seen so far.
Kick-off!

NOTHING IN IT

There's been no lack of action but Leipzig have come by far the closest with the only attempts on target, including the best chance from the spot. But Emil Forsberg couldn't find a way past Gregor Kobel's outstretched leg and the game remains level at the break.

A DIFFICULT 12 YARDS

No team has missed as many penalties in the Bundesliga this season as Leipzig (2). But they've also been awarded the most spot-kicks in the league (7).

MANGALA OVER

Orel Mangala drives forward and decides to hit it himself from 20 yards, but the shot's always rising.

SAVED!

There was a huge call of "Come on Gregor" just before Forsberg stepped up to take and the Stuttgart keeper has done it, sticking up a leg as he dives to his left and diverting the ball onto the crossbar to deny the Swede from 12 yards.

PENALTY TO LEIPZIG!

ANGELINO!

Leipzig's wing-back - and top scorer - almost adds to his four goals this campaign in the opening few minutes as he latches onto a volley on the edge of the box. Kobel does well to react down to his right and save.

MOMENTS AWAY

Here come the teams in Stuttgart for the final fixture of a busy first Bundesliga Saturday of 2021.

ONE-SIDED HEAD-TO-HEAD

Stuttgart and Leipzig have met four times before in competitive action across the 2017/18 and 2018/19 Bundesliga season. Those games produced a 0-0 draw and three RBL wins (1-0, 2-0 and 3-1). Die Roten Bullen have also never lost a Bundesliga games to a promoted side, winning 14 and drawing three. To make matters worse for VfB, only one member of their squad has ever scored against Leipzig in the Bundesliga. That is Daniel Didavi (for Wolfsburg in May 2018), and he misses out today with a knock.

TIME TO BREAK THE HOME DUCK

Promoted Stuttgart can be pleased with their season so far, with only three defeats in their opening 13 fixtures their best return since they actually won the title in 2006/07, while their 26 goals scored is also their best in 14 years. However, Matarazzo's side are yet to win at the Mercedes-Benz Arena since their top-flight return, failing to win their first six home games of a Bundesliga season for the first time ever (D4, L2).

MILESTONE MATCH

This is also the 150th match of Leipzig's Bundesliga history. Their record of 80 wins (D40, L29) before this landmark fixture is already a league record, surpassing the previous best of 79 wins set by Bayern.

CHANCE TO APPLY PRESSURE

Leverkusen's defeat to Frankfurt earlier today means RB Leipzig can move top with a win tonight and apply some pressure on Bayern before they host Mainz tomorrow. Julian Nagelsmann's side are only two points off the champions at the summit and on a run of seven without defeat in the Bundesliga.

ADAMS IN, KLOSTERMANN RETURNS

As for Leipzig, they make only one change from their 3-0 cup win against Augsburg as Tyler Adams replaces Nordi Mukiele, who misses out with a knock. There is good news, though, with Lukas Klostermann back in the squad for the first time since Matchday 4 after a knee operation.

THREE VFB CHANGES

Pellegrino Matarazzo brings in three new faces from their 1-0 win over Freiburg in the DFB Cup. Gregor Kobel returns in goal in place of Fabian Bredlow, while wide men Borna Sosa and Silla Wamangituka replace Tanguy Coulibaly and Mateo Klimowicz, who also drop to the bench.
