BERLIN, March 18 (Reuters) - Werder Bremen’s Austrian trio scored all three goals as the hosts stunned second-placed RB Leipzig 3-0 on Saturday to continue their sensational recovery with their fourth win in five matches.
Zlatko Junuzovic was on target in the 34th minute and set up fellow countryman Florian Grillitsch with a well-studied free kick move on the hour.
Substitute Florian Kainz netted their third goal two minutes after coming on in the 88th as the former German champions moved up to 13th place, three points away from the relegation playoff spot.
It was yet another miserable afternoon for promoted Leipzig, who had taken the Bundesliga by storm earlier this season but have now managed just two wins in their last seven games.
They remain second on 49 points, with leaders Bayern Munich, 10 points clear, facing Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday.
Third-placed Dortmund closed to within three points of Leipzig after their lacklustre 1-0 win over Ingolstadt on Friday. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann; Editing by Clare Fallon)
