Kramaric’s Goal Holds Hoffenheim to 1-1 Draw with 10-Man RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig squandered the opportunity to climb to third place in the Bundesliga standings this Friday. Andrej Kramaric scored a late equalizer to prevent RB Leipzig from securing a win in a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim. The match also saw Xavi Simons receiving a red card in the 72nd minute. Simons was expelled from the game after receiving his second yellow card. RB Leipzig was leading 1-0 thanks to Benjamin Sesko’s goal in the first half, but they were unable to maintain their lead. Marco Rose’s squad appeared poised to overtake Stuttgart for the third spot in the standings, but Kramaric’s last-minute goal secured a draw for Hoffenheim. Kramaric nearly scored earlier, but Peter Gulasci made an impressive save to deny him earlier. RB Leipzig missed the opportunity to extend their lead over fifth-placed Borussia Dortmund. However, both teams have secured a spot in next season’s Champions League due to Germany’s strong performance in the UEFA coefficient rankings. A quick analysis of the match shows that David Raum provided the assist for Sesko’s goal. This assist was Raum’s eighth of the season in the Bundesliga. Raum has assisted seven headers, the most by any player in the league, alongside Franck Honorat from Borussia Monchengladbach.
