A LAST-GASP Alexander Sorloth goal a dramatic 3-2 comeback win for RB Leipzig at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach today and kept the hosts in the thick of the Bundesliga title race.

Leipzig fought back with second-half goals by Christopher Nkunku and Yussuf Poulsen before Sorloth’s winning header in the 93rd minute after Gladbach led 2-0 at half-time thanks to strikes by Marcus Thuram and Jonas Hofmann.
