Hummels: Leipzig defeat not a disaster

FC Bayern Munchen defender Mats Hummels admits the 2-1 defeat to RB Leipzig bothered the team but doesn’t represent a major problem for the Bundesliga leaders.

Bayern took the early lead at the Red Bull Arena on Sunday thanks to Sandro Wagner’s opener, but Naby Keita levelled matters before Timo Werner completed the comeback win in the 56th minute.

Hummels was frustrated with the result, but with Bayern still enjoying a 17-point lead at the top of the standings, he doesn’t perceive the setback as a disaster.

“Leipzig were clearly on top. They definitely could have and should have been in front at half-time. It’s not terrible but it still annoys us,” the Germany international told the club’s official website.

Bayern manager Jupp Heynckes echoed Hummels’ sentiments, adding: “It’s not a disaster for us to lose against such a good team – we have to take that into account.”
