Bundesliga: Leipzig Title Hopes Hit The Wall With Loss To Bochum
A second-half goal from Erhan Masovic gave Bochum to a surprise 1-0 home win over RB Leipzig, dealing the visitors a blow in their top-four battle.
Bochum took the lead three minutes into the second half when Masovic latched onto a loose ball in the penalty area and headed past Leipzig goalkeeper Janis Blaswich.
Leipzig midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai had a late chance to equalise but his shot hit the inside of the post and rebounded into the arms of Bochum 'keeper Manuel Riemann.
Bochum's second win in a row pushed them four points clear of the relegation playoff spot.
Leipzig could finish the weekend in fifth place should both Union Berlin and Freiburg avoid defeat on Sunday.
