RB Leipzig's women's soccer team suffered another defeat against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.

The RB Leipzig women's soccer team have conceded another defeat in the Bundesliga. The Leipzig team lost 2-1 (0-1) at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Sunday. Spaniard Marta Cazalla Garcia had put the TSG women ahead after just six minutes. After the break, it was again the Spaniard who scored to make it 2-0 (62') before Lydia Andrade (82') scored the equalizer. RB go into the winter break in tenth place in the table.

The RB women had set their sights high after being knocked out of the cup at the same venue in November with a 3-0 defeat. But the match plan became a case for the paper garbage can early on. A free-kick from Jana Feldkamp's half-field cross was headed over the line from close range by Garcia, who had run in completely unchallenged. RB goalkeeper Elvira Herzog, who had extended her contract until 2027 on Friday, was powerless. The visitors struggled in the remainder of the match, but failed to create any compelling chances. In the 37th minute, Herzog made a brilliant save from Ereleta Memedi.

After the break, it was Garcia again who headed in unchallenged from a corner kick. RB looked uninspired going forward, with only substitute Vanessa Fudalla creating any danger. Eight minutes before the end, she set up Andrade, who scored the equalizer. In stoppage time, Sandra Starke missed a good chance to equalize when she missed the ball.
