Next match in
Incredible scenes as Hahn wins a header from a corner which is blocked by one of his teammates just in front of goal. The ball falls loose in front of Gulacsi with another shot blocked in the mayhem before the offside flag is raised against Augsburg.
We're now into four minutes of added time at the end of this game.
GUMNY ON TARGET!
Richter's cross is blocked and comes to Gumny, who turns brilliantly into space before firing at goal. It's straight down the throat of Gulacsi though as we enter added time.
NKUNKU OFF THE POST!
Incredibly, Nkunku hasn't scored his second of the game. Adams sends Sorloth in behind and he skips past Gikiewicz who had raced off his line. He cuts back and takes time to pick his pass, going for goal with a lob. Gikiewicz recovers and parries the ball down but it comes to Nkunku. He hits it from just a few yards out in front of goal but falls as he does, and the ball bounces out off the post.
Sorloth brings fresh legs for the final few minutes, replacing Haidara.
HAHN DOING THE HARD YARDS!

SABITZER HAS A GO!
The substitute picks up the ball from Nkunku's pass just on the edge of the Augsburg box and has time to fire at goal on his left foot. He drags his effort back across goal, and a touch too far in the end as it dribbles wide.
Last chance saloon now for Augsburg with Niederlechner and Richter on for the final 10 minutes.
POULSEN SO CLOSE!
Leipzig almost immediately score again as Angelino lofts a cross into the Augsburg box for Poulsen to head at goal, but Gikiewicz makes a fine save low to his left.
BACK IN IT!
With their first shot on goal, Augsburg are back in this game. Caligiuri steps up and smashes the ball past Gulacsi - who had dived the right way and got a fingertip to the ball - to give Augsburg late hope.
Konate tripes Pedersen in the Leipzig area and Augsburg have a chance to get a goal back here.
Haidara has been doing the hard work in midfield this evening to help his home side lead.
Amadou HaidaraCarlos Gruezo
The USMNT man is cautioned just after coming on.
It's been hard work for Gruezo in midfield, and he's replaced by Khedira with 20 to play.
Augsburg have kept Leipzig chances to a minimum in the second half so far, but the problem is at the other end where no chances has been created on goal. It's the longest Augsburg have gone in any game this season without registering an attempt on goal.
STILL LEIPZIG IN TOTAL CONTROL
KNOCK FOR HAIDARA
The Leipzig midfielder took a hit in the challenge which saw Benes cautioned and he's just taking some treatment on the sidelines. He looks likely to continue, though, for now.
Two changes for Leipzig with Adams and Konate on, while Vargas has been introduced for Augsburg.
The fifth Augsburg played booked tonight if Benes for a foul on Haidara.
The Leipzig captain brings down Pedersen and he is shown a yellow card.
Gumny has some space ahead of him down the right to cross into the Leipzig area. Hahn is waiting to pounce as Gulacsi comes out to clear between him and a defender, and the Leipzig backline comes to their goalkeeper's aid after he failed to push the ball away fully.
WORK TO DO FOR AUGSBURG

The away side have yet to have a shot on goal in this game but at the moment they can barely keep possession in the Leipzig half.
STARTING WELL AGAIN
Leipzig have picked up right where they left off here in the second half with the intensity and pressing incredibly high. Angelino fired a shot low across goal but was caught offside when played in behind.
The ball is rolling once again as we start the second half, with no changes at the break for either side.
We'll have two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
NKUNKU MAKES IT TWO!
Leipzig win the ball from the Augsburg defence in their own half and it's Poulsen who races in behind. He plays the ball across goal unselfishly to find Nkunku in space and he duly taps the ball into the empty net.
The first Leipzig player shown a yellow card is Klostermann for pulling back Hahn.
ALMOST FOR NKUNKU
Olmo is found by Halstenberg and flicks the ball into the area for Nkunku. He's about to pull the trigger while on the run across goal, but Gouweleeuw makes a crucial block to deny him before he can get a shot away.
NO MISTAKE THIS TIME!
Olmo steps up for the second time and makes no mistake. He fires the ball the same way with much more power behind it, and Gikiewicz can*t do anything about that one. Leipzig into the lead just before the break.
PENALTY SAVED, BUT TO NO AVAIL!
Olmo steps up but Gikiewicz dives to his right and chooses correctly to make an outstanding one-handed save. But Video-Assist has ordered it to be re-taken with Gikieiwcz stepping off his line.
Olmo's shot is blocked and Mukiele is brought down on the rebound and Leipzig have a spot-kick.

The next Augsburg defender cautioned as Suchy brings down Orban with a late challenge.
But the hosts have not been clinical so far...
LEIPZIG ON TOP
OLMO SO CLOSE!
Nkunku has a free-kick blocked by the Augsburg wall and the loose ball loops over to Olmo to the right of him. A touch on the chest to control and Olmo smashes a crisp half-volley at goal. Gikiewicz doesn't move a muscle but the ball whizzes past his post to his right. That's the closest either side have come so far!
A second yellow in the Augsburg defence as the captain brings down Olmo on the run.
NOT MAKING THINGS EASY
Augsburg's defence and midfield is staying patient and pouncing on any loose touches from Leipzig to win the ball back. It's been tough going for the hosts in terms of finding space going forward, so Augsburg will be pleased.
ALL AT ONE END

ON THE BACK FOOT
Augsburg sitting back for the most part in this first half, but pressing well in attack when Leipzig have the ball in their defence. Benes and Caligiuri joining Hahn in attack across the pitch.
As usual, Leipzig's wing-backs are making plenty of forward runs and causing problems for Augsburg when tracking back. Angelino and Mukiele the men doing the damage early on.
NKUNKU HAS A GO!
The Frenchman steps up to the free-kick on the edge of the Augsburg penalty area and fires it at the goalkeeper's side of the net. Gikiewicz stands strong and parries the short away.
A pull-back on Angelino just outside the area earns Oxford an early yellow card here.
First of all, a shout out to the several Leipzig and Augsburg players who are wearing short sleeves or sporting no gloves tonight. Orban the standout doing both of those. It's -10 in Leipzig at kick-off and will only get colder as the game goes on.
The ball is rolling in Leipzig for the first game of our weekend of action.
TIME IS UPON US!
It's a freezing night in Leipzig, but things will be heating up shortly. The start of Matchday 21 in the Bundesliga is just moments away!
TALE OF THE TAPE
A win tonight can help Leipzig keep the pressure on Bayern at the top of the table, closing the gap to four points before Bayern are in action again on Monday. For Augsburg, every point counts as they fight to keep away from a potential relegation battle towards the end of this season. As things that, they sit five points clear of the bottom three.
WATCH: AUGSBURG 0-2 LEIPZIG - LAST TIME OUT
JULIAN'S PERFECT RECORD
Julian Nagelsmann, who was born near Augsburg, has never lost to them as a coach. His 11 matches against Augsburg have returned nine wins and just two draws - Augsburg are officially Nagelsmann's favourite opposition as a coach.
NO FUN AT LEIPZIG
Augsburg are winless in their last eight competitive meetings with Leipzig, losing seven, including home Bundesliga (0-2) and DFB Cup (0-3) fixtures earlier this season. Their Bundesliga record against Die Roten Bullen reads: W1, D3, L5.
LEIPZIG TEAM NEWS
Nagelsmann has rotated his squad with Sabitzer, Adams and Upamecano all dropping to the bench. Forsberg is targeting a return for next week's UEFA Champions League last 16 meeting with Liverpool, while Kluivert is back and on the bench for the second-placed home team, but winter arrival Szoboszlai is still out.
AUGSBURG TEAM NEWS
The experience of four-goal Caligiuri could be vital tonight with a defensive set-up deployed by Heiko Herrlich. All the more so, given that left-sided defender Iago has had to undergo ankle surgery. Meanwhile, January loan signing Benes continues in an attacking midfield role after impressing on debut last week.
