CHANCE FOR NKUNKU
The 24-year-old charges into the box and has space to shoot on his left foot, but instead opts to try and shift the ball on to his right with a feint. It almost comes off, but Tapsoba manages to poke it off his toe.

OVER FROM SCHICK
Leipzig struggle to clear a corner and the ball falls to Schick inside a crowded box. He's falling over as he strikes it, and blazes over the bar from eight yards.
LEIPZIG MORE CLINICAL
The Frenchman has come on as a substitute three times in the Bundesliga this season. In those appearances he's registered two goals and three assists!
LAST THROW OF THE DICE

OPENING FOR DIABY!
The Frenchman shows a great change of pace to skip past two defenders and line up a shot on his left foot from the edge of the box. He has a clear sight of goal but doesn't catch the ball completely cleanly, and it goes straight at Gulacsi.
That goal has forced Leverkusen head coach Gerardo Seoane to make some attacking changes as they seek a way back into the match. Demirbay comes on for Tah and Paulinho for Palacio. Meanwhile, Leipzig boss Domenico Tedesco also goes more attacking, with Angelino on for Halstenberg on the left wing.
It's been coming this half and finally Leipzig get there goal. It comes from an Aranguiz slip but the visitors won't care. Nkunku slides a pass into Szoboszlai, whose shot deflects of Tah's foot and goes in!
CHANCE FOR MUKIELE!
Laimer plays a stunning pass down the right to Mukiele, who charges into the box but can only fire wide of the far post with just Hradecky to beat.
QUICK FEET FROM OLMO
Some lovely skill from the Leipzig midfielder in the middle of the pitch to jink and shimmy his way past three challenges. He's eventually bundled over and the free-kick comes to nothing, but it was terrific skill nonetheless.
Diaby with a superb piece of control on the edge of the Leipzig box to set himself up to turn and run at goal. It's on his weaker right foot though, and he can only shoot into the side netting.
CHANCE FOR TAH
Diaby pings in a corner from the right and finds Tah, whose header goes wide. It wouldn't have counted anyway, as the Leverkusen defender is penalised for a foul on Mukiele.
Poulsen is forced off with an injury after teammate Adams inadvertently stepped on his right hand. Dani Olmo also comes on to provide more attacking impetus, replacing Forsberg.
Palacios and Forsberg are the players who most rarely give the ball away so far.
DANGEROUS FROM DIABY
Diaby whips in a cross from the left, looking for Schick. He's close to getting his head on it, but a Leipzig defender just manages to clear ahead of him.
OVER FROM HALSTENBERG
Hincapie is booked for bringing down Nkunku on the edge of the Leverkusen area. The visitors are awarded a free-kick, right of centre, which Halstenberg takes, but he can't get enough dip on the ball and it whizzes over.
OFF THE POST!
Nkunku makes mischief within seconds of the half starting, his quick feet causing problems in the box. The ball falls to Orban, whose low drive hits the inside of the post and rolls away.
UNDER WAY AGAIN!
One change at the break from Leipzig, with Nkunku coming on for Silva.
ALL SQUARE AT THE BREAK

The ball has been in the middle third of the pitch for the last few minutes. Both teams are trying to play their way forward with the ball on the floor, but there's just no way through.
SCHICK GOES CLOSE!
Hincapie dinks an inviting cross from the left into the box, right into the run of Schick, who doesn't even have to break stride. He leaps and gets his head on it, but can only guide the ball wide of the far post.
Leipzig are yet to have a single effort at goal - on target or otherwise - so it's Leverkusen who have the better xG expected goals rating at present.
CHANCES AT A PREMIUM
The Leipzig defender is shown the first yellow card of the game after a heft challenge on Andrich.
SILVA ALMOST IN
A Leverkusen attack breaks down an the ball is hoofed upfield for Silva to chase. For a moment it looks like the Portuguese forward will bear down on Hradecky's goal, but he's squeezed out by a combination of Tah and Tapsoba.

CHANCE FOR DIABY!
Leipzig appear to be finding their stride as a series of quick passes pulls Leipzig's defence wide open. Diaby sprints into the box and gets a shot away from a tight angle, but Gulacsi blocks it at his near post.
Another corner from Leverkusen, this time it finds Tah at the far post. His header is straight at Gulacsi, though.
OVER FROM ARANGUIZ
A Leverkusen corner is only half-cleared to the edge of the box, where Aranguiz is arriving. He unleashes a first-time shot, but is leaning back and it's always sailing well over.
FIRST CHANCE FOR LEVERKUSEN
Palacios delivers a free-kick from the left deep towards the back post, finding Tapsoba. He heads it back across goal, where it deflects off a Leipzig leg and bounces towards GUlcasi, but the home goalkeeper is alert and makes a good save.
FIRST ATTACKING INTENT
Andrich darts forward from midfield to collect a ball over the top of the defence. He gets to the byline and hooks a cross into the middle, but it's clear by a Leipzig boot.
The hosts seem to have weathered the early Leipzig storm - without allowing them a clear sight of goal. Leverkusen are having more of the ball now and are finding space to string a few passes together.
