Promoted RB Leipzig continues to pay a price in the women's soccer Bundesliga. The team of coach Saban Uzun lost on Sunday against the German champion FC Bayern Munich with 0:3 (0:3) and had to accept the already fourth defeat in the fifth game. However, RB played against three top teams at the same time. Giulia Gwinn (8th minute) brought Bayern in the lead, before Jovana Damnjanovic (14./42.) increased by double pack to the final score.

The in the current season still unbezwungenen, but with two draws traveled Münchnerinnen began furiously. After three minutes, Lea Schüller was free through, but her Lupfer over RB keeper Elvira Herzog went a few centimeters past the goal. When the RB defense could only clear the ball to the penalty spot five minutes later, Gwinn was in the right place and shot straight to take the lead. It was the first season goal for the national player.

The Leipzig rearguard looked extremely unsafe, hardly found a means against the pressing guests. After a pass from Schüller Damnjanovic increased to 2:0. Shortly before the change Damnjanovic was sent half-right steeply, with her shot from acute angle in the short corner RB-Keeperin Herzog looked anything but good. After the change the guests switched a gear back, the RB women showed themselves a little more present in the duels and could thus make the half even.
