He may not have been on the scoresheet but Emil Forsberg once again pulled the strings in RB Leipzig's 3-2 win at Mainz on Matchday 27.
"I have to score more and assist more," the super Swede said recently, and while he may not have been directly involved in the goals, his movement, passing and leadership all helped the easterners to a crucial win.
Forsberg's touch of quality came at an important time for Leipzig, as they capitalised on Bayern Munich's defeat at Hoffenheim on Tuesday to re-establish a four-point cushion over third in the table.
