Forsberg: We’re looking ahead

Upon qualifying for next season's Champions League, RB Leipzig forward Emil Forsberg says they are focusing on the title race, after FC Bayern München dropped points.

Die Bullen secured qualification into Europe's elite cup competition in their first ever season in the German top-flight, following an empathic 4-0 win over SC Freiburg at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Yussuf Poulsen, Forsberg, Naby Keita and Diego Demme scored the goals for Ralph Hussenhattl's side as they closed the gap on Carlo Ancelotti's men to eight points, with five games remaining.

"We're not going to look behind us, we're going to look upwards instead," he said after the game when asked about Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund vying for their second placed spot. "We've been doing this the whole time.

"We don't focus on other teams, we focus on ourselves and out performances. Today we played really good, we deserved to win. It was a great win."
