The fact that RB Leipzig is still a selling club is an issue. Larger clubs will be able to grab their finest players even though they could be brilliant at it and can spot the next generation of talent to sign.
That includes Bayern, of course,
but the German champions have also shown skill in their own hiring,
and with their emphasis on youth,
they can afford to pursue already-proven stars like Sadio Mane while still investing in long-term development.
The result on Saturday
was an injustice to Leipzig because Bayern had been playing ruthlessly and their opponents were simply too careless with the ball to be considered title contenders right now.

On the hour, Leipzig trimmed the deficit with a goal from Marcel Halstenberg,
