Christopher Nkunku and RB Leipzig dealt a major blow to Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga title hopes as they came from behind to seal a 3-1 win over Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Serge Gnabry put Bayern in front in the first half but Tuchel’s men collapsed after the break as Konrad Laimer equalised in the 64th minute before penalties from Nkunku and Dominik Szoboszlai completed Leipzig’s comeback.

The defeat leaves Bayern a point clear at the top of the Bundesliga, but they could get overtaken by Borussia Dortmund if they beat Augsburg on Sunday.

Nkunku, who is set to join Chelsea this summer, struggled for playing time during Tuchel’s reign at Paris Saint-Germain and was played as a right-back by the German.
