Leipzig - TSV 1860 Munich struck a late equaliser against RB Leipzig as the final game of the calendar year in the Bundesliga 2 ended 1-1.

Markus von Ahlen's visiting 1860 began the stronger with Rubin Okotie's 12th-minute finish disallowed for offside, but the deadlock on an injury-disrupted opening half was broken by a wonderful strike from Leipzig's Yussuf Poulsen just before the half-hour mark.

With the visitors obliged to hunt for an equaliser, the second half began as intensely as the first had ended with Korbinian Vollmann wasting a chance and Poulsen hitting the post at the other end. However, just as it seemed Leipzig would end the year with three points, Okotie latched onto a through ball and slotted home his 12th goal of the season to rescue a point. Leipzig will spend the winter break in seventh position, while the draw lifted 1860 out of the drop zone and into 15th.
