RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg made history on Wednesday night as he scored his side’s first ever goal in the UEFA Champions League in the easterners’ 1-1 draw against AS Monaco.

Founded in 2009, the club from the former East Germany are now in their second Bundesliga season and breaking bread with the best teams in Europe.

Leipzig’s next match in Europe is on 26 September, when they travel to Besiktas, who won 3-1 at Porto in Group G’s other game.
