WATCH: SZOBOSZLAI: "I CAN'T DESCRIBE HOW I FEEL!"
WATCH: FORSBERG: "SZOBOSZLAI A FANTASTIC TALENT"
LEIPZIG GET FIRST WIN!
Well that was quite the performance by Leipzig and Dominik Szoboszlai in particular. He marked his home debut with a wonderful opener and added another from a free-kick after Emil Forsberg stunned Stuttgart with a second goal for the home side 15 seconds into the second half. Like Szoboszlai, Andre Silva also got his first Bundesliga side as Leipzig secured an impressive first league win of the season. In the battle of the American coaches, it's Jesse Marsch who won this battle against Pellegrino Matarazzo of Stuttgart.
MUKIELE OFF TARGET
Nordi Mukiele can't make it five as he's off target from a corner.
STENZEL DRAWS A SAVE
Pascal Stenzel goes close to getting a goal back right after coming on, but his well-struck effort is parried by Gulacsi.
NO CONSOLATION FOR ENDO
Wataru Endo does his best to get a goal back for Stuttgart but nothing is coming off for the visitors.
BOTH SIDES CHANGE UP
Both teams are making plenty of changes now but there's surely no way back for Stutgart.
LAIMER JUST WIDE!
Klostermann picks out Konrad Laimer with a low cross from the right and the substitute stabs the ball into the side net.
SILVA SCORES FROM THE SPOT!
Kempf is penalised for handball in the area and Silva thumps home his first Leizpig goal from the penalty spot. Müller goes the right way, but the former Eintracht attacker - who got 28 goals for the Eagles last season - is up and running for his new club.
GOAL!4 : 0
DIDAVI ON TARGET
Stuttgart were understandably a little shellshocked but after composing themselves and seeing a couple of efforts blocked, they create a half chance to pull a goal back. Didavi holds off his man but slips as he hits a shot which is easily gathered by Gulacsi.
SZOBOSZLAI GETS HIS SECOND!
The Hungarian eyes up another free-kick from a similar position to his last one on the left, albeit a little further back. He fizzes the ball diagonally across the area and it creeps in the net! It looked like this one was intended for one of his teammates, but like all good free-kick takers Szoboszlai made sure the ball would go into the far corner if no one touched it. With Müller taking a step to his right in case anyone got a head it to it, he can only watch as the ball instead goes across him and into the net.
GOAL!3 : 0
Szoboszlai lines up a free-kick on the angle of the area and fires another fierce shot towards goal. It's close enough for Müller to punch away.
FORSBERG MAKES IT TWO!
Fifteen seconds after the restart and Leipzig have doubled their advantage. Forsberg and Nkunku link up nicely, then Silva flicks the ball beautifully back into the Swede's path. He slips the ball past Müller for two.
WE'RE UNDERWAY AGAIN
Let's hope the second half is as exciting as the first. Stuttgart have tried to rejig their attack with Didavi sent on.
GOAL!2 : 0
Hamadi Al Ghaddioui
LEIPZIG LEAD AT THE INTERVAL
What a half of football! The pace never let up and both sides had chances but Stuttgart netminder Müller was definitely the busier goalkeeper. It was always going to take something special to beat him on this form, and Szoboszlai provided it with a wonderful strike.
The deadlock is finally broken thanks to a thunderous hit from Szoboszlai. He's had to wait a long time for this moment following the injury-hit start to his career at the club. The January arrival has marked his home debut with one of his trademark goals. From the right of the area, the Hungarian let fly across Müller for one of the sweetest goals you'll see this season.
GOAL!1 : 0
Massimo fires over a teasing cross from the right. Al Ghaddioui makes contact from close range, but not enough to threaten Leipzig keeper Gulacsi.

MÜLLER KEPT BUSY
Lukas Klostermann stings the palms of Müller from just inside the area.
SILVA SCISSORS KICK!
What skill that was! And what a save too! Silva's acrobatic attempt is just about kept out down low by Müller.
Tyler Adams closes in on goal but Stuttgart defender Marc-Oliver Kempf makes a great tackle.
ANOTHER STRIKE AT GOAL
Borna Sosa finds space on the left but his shot from a tight angle goes wide.
HOW DID THAT STAY OUT?
Christopher Nkunku is free on the left of the area and his shot is deflected high above Müller. Not for the first time, the German Olympic team's goalkeeper reacts sharply to claw the ball away. It comes off the head of Forsberg but it's safely off target.
Josko Gvardiol goes on a brilliant dribble into the Stuttgart area and his cutback causes chaos. Orban pounces on the loose ball but is unable to jam it home past the highly alert Müller.
Hamadi Al Ghaddioui gets on the end of a left-wing delivery but his volley is kept out by Gulacsi at his near post.
Dominik Szoboszlai plays in Andre Silva but the normally lethal striker slices his attempt wide. It's turning into a really open game.
ROCKET FROM MASSIMO
Stuttgart force a couple of corners and when the second one is cleared out, Roberto Massimo catches his effort from distance superbly on the half-volley. Peter Gulacsi is well placed to grab hold of his shot.
Leipzig have had all of the ball and Emil Forsberg gets the first shot on target - a good one too from a central position just outside the penalty box. Stuttgart keeper Florian Müller flies to his left to prevent the low left-footed strike from skidding into the corner.
FIRST CORNER FOR HOME SIDE
Willi Orban gets up well to meet the first corner of the game, but the Leipzig defender's header goes harmlessly wide.
AND WE’RE OFF!
Stuttgart get the ball rolling on Bundesliga Matchday 2!
TEAM NEWS - LEIPZIG
The big news for Leipzig is the absence of left-back Angelino, a muscle injury ruling the Spaniard out of action here. He's replaced by Josko Gvardiol. Elsewhere, Marcel Sabitzer is back in the squad but has to settle for a place on the bench, with Tyler Adams and Amadou Haidara starting in holding midfield. There's also a first Bundesliga start for Hungarian attacker Dominik Szoboszlai.
TEAM NEWS - STUTTGART
Sasa Kalajdzic is back for Stuttgart, although the striker begins on the bench here; he is likely to come on in the closing stages. Hamadi Al Ghaddioui starts up top again in his stead, while Philipp Klement deputises for the injured Atakan Karazor.

Leipzig might be the favourites on paper after finishing as Bundesliga runners-up last season, but Stuttgart are a very good away side and not to be underestimated. Head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo's charges had the fifth-best record of all teams on the road last term, winning more points on their travels (24) than on home turf (21).
