Ancelotti revels in ´crazy´ Bayern comeback at Leipzig

Ancelotti revels in ´crazy´ Bayern comeback at Leipzig

"They have played surprisingly well".

RB briefly kept Bayern off the top of the Bundesliga for three weeks last November with a transfer policy of signing raw, young talent - all five signings in the past year are 21 or younger. Leipzig started strongly, but we were better in the end.

"They are playing Champions League football next term and that will be a great experience".

In-demand Timo Werner got the hosts' second before half-time - also from the spot - before Yussuf Poulsen put Leipzig 3-1 up.

Lahm, who will retire after Bayern's final game of the season next Saturday against Freiburg, expects Leipzig to become worthy rivals for the Bavarians in years to come.

Bayern's Robert Lewandowski, second left, challenges for the ball with Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi, third right, during the German first division Bundesliga soccer match between RB Leipzig and FC Bayern Munich in Leipzig, Germany, Saturday, May 13, 2017.

Werner rattled the base of the post but Ralph Hasenhuttl's side by no means had it all their own way and a handball decision when Lahm's cross struck Bernardo resulted in a penalty that Lewandowski sent beyond Peter Gulacsi.

With both clubs having already qualified directly for next season's Champions League, Bayern's coach Carlo Ancelotti says RB Leipzig have proved they have a big future after an impressive first Bundesliga season. Questions will be asked of Bayern's defence, which shipped four goals for the first time since losing 4-1 at Wolfsburg in January 2015.

Some rivers receding, but Mississippi River remains high
The chance of rain is about 60% for Saturday, the National Weather Service said, with a tenth to a quarter inch of rain possible. Most smaller rivers are falling sharply, but the MS is expected to crest over the weekend in some towns in Missouri and IL .

Augsburg dented Borussia Dortmund's hopes of claiming the final automatic Champions League place by holding on for a 1-1 draw.

Aubameyang's equaliser cancelled out Alfred Finnbogason's early strike for Augsburg.

Dortmund are level on 61 points with Hoffenheim, who crushed Werder Bremen 5-3, but have a better goal difference going into the last matchday next week.

Ingolstadt, which drew 1-1 at Freiburg, was relegated in dramatic fashion as Sead Kolasinac's apparent injury-time victor for Schalke against relegation rival Hamburger SV was ruled out, leaving Ingolstadt four points adrift of Hamburg with one round left.

Mainz are effectively safe from relegation after coming from 2-0 down to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-2.

His first came from the spot before he added another to make it 4-3, after Arjen Robben's effort had hit the crossbar.
