RB Leipzig's title chase hit a snag when they drew 1-1 at home against Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday to drop three points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

Leon Bailey tapped in a Kai Havertz assist on the half hour to put the visitors ahead but their lead only lasted two minutes with Patrik Schick rising high to head in a cross from Christopher Nkunku for his seventh league goal.

Leipzig, who had won the last three games in all competitions, and their opponents did little after the break to even come close to scoring, leaving them both with a point.
