Chelsea-bound Werner hits two on RB Leipzig farewell

German striker Timo Werner marked his RB Leipzig swansong with two well-taken goals to guide RB Leipzig to a 2-1 victory at Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Leipzig full-back Nordi Mukiele and midfielder Emil Forsberg spurned glorious opportunities before Werner, who will depart for Chelsea at the end of the season, put his side in front in the 28th minute.

The 24-year-old latched on to a defence-splitting pass from Amadou Haidara before rounding Augsburg goalkeeper Tomas Koubek for his 27th league goal of the season.

Augsburg, who had a red card for Philipp Max overturned by VAR in the second half, hit back through Ruben Vargas, whose long-range effort proved too powerful for Yvon Mvogo to keep out.

Werner added a second eight minutes from time, latching on to Angelino's cross-field pass and firing into the bottom corner.

The result means Leipzig end the season in third place with 66 points, one shy of their record Bundesliga tally achieved in 2016-17, while Augsburg finish in 15th with 36 points, five clear of the relegation zone.
