Patrick Schick has put Leipzig ahead when the match ran for 3 minutes. He was able to swerve past two host defenders and make a settlement to the far corner of Paderborn’s goal.

Timo Werner then completed the suffering of Paderborn through his goal in the 26th minute. Werner completed his team’s quick counterattack by grabbing Christopher Nkunku Sodoran ball.
Paderborn played loosely in the second half. Packing a goal back through Streli Mbamba who ran to welcome the pass and beat goalkeeper, Yvon Mvogo. But the goal was not validated as Mbamba was first caught offside.
In the 62nd minute Mbamba was able to manage his run time better, and he calmly defeated goalkeeper, Mvogo, to direct the ball to the near post.
