Marcel Sabitzer scores stunning winner as RB Leipzig come from behind to beat Zenit and take control of Champions League group

RB Leipzig came from behind to end a four-game winless streak and boost their chances of Champions League progress with a 2-1 win over Zenit St. Petersburg on Wednesday.

Marcel Sabitzer scored one goal and set up another for the German side to move top of Group G with six points from three games, though Lyon had a chance to reclaim the lead when it played at Benfica later.

Leipzig, who were beaten 2-0 at home by Lyon, hadn’t won a game since a 3-0 Bundesliga win at Werder Bremen on September 21.
