Leipzig - RasenBallsport Leipzig beat FC Erzgebirge Aue 1-0 to move top of Bundesliga 2 ahead of the weekend's remaining Matchday 3 encounters.

The hosts took the lead in bizarre circumstances when Arvydas Novikovas' clearance hit Leipzig's Anthony Jung before deflecting into the path of captain Daniel Frahn, who finished coolly from close range. The first half was overshadowed by an injury to RB defender Niklas Hoheneder, who landed awkwardly after colliding with his own keeper.

Erzgebirge pushed for an equaliser in the second half, but the Bundesliga 2 newcomers held on quite comfortably in the end, recording their second successive league win to climb temporarily to the top of the table.
