Leipzig slip back with goalless draw at Wolfsburg

BERLIN (Reuters) - RB Leipzig played out a lacklustre 0-0 at VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday to drop to third place in the Bundesliga following their second consecutive draw.

Leipzig, who host Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Tuesday, hardly made an impact in the first half but tried their lucky early in the second with shots from Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer.

The Wolves hit back with two chances of their own, first a 77th-minute low Max Arnold drive and then a similar Xaver Schlager effort in the 89th, with both shots flying narrowly wide.

Leipzig dropped to third on 50 points after Borussia Dortmund edged past Borussia Moenchengladbach to take over second place on 51. Bayern, on 52, can move further away with a win over Augsburg on Sunday.

Bayer Leverkusen moved into the top four on 47 points with a dominant 4-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt and two goals from Paulinho.
