Leipzig are going through a period of remarkable results. An 0-8 cup win against lower league opponents, then a 4-0 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt and a 1-4 home loss to Shakhtar that precipitated the start of new manager, Marco Rose.
Rose began with an impressive 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund and a credible performance in Madrid before losing two late goals to Real. Borussia Monchengladbach beat Leipzig 3-0 two weeks ago gave Rose lots to consider ahead of the international break, which they returned from with a 4-0 over bottom placed Bochum on Saturday.
I only watched the game against Monchengladbach but suspect it was one of a few bizarre results that did not reflect the flow of the game. We should not be reassured by this period.
