RB Leipzig continued its push towards the top spot in the Bundesliga table on Saturday, claiming a 1-0 road win over in-form Stuttgart with Tyler Adams impressing at right back.
Adams put in a strong shift for Julian Nagelsmann’s side in the process, playing 81 minutes and helping the team extend its unbeaten run to nine matches in all competitions. The 21-year-old returned to the starting lineup, making two interceptions, six recoveries, and completing 81% of his passes in the Leipzig backline. Adams has rotated at times for Leipzig this season, but has started in two of his last three appearances in all competitions, and very well could keep his spot ahead of the club’s home date with Borussia Dortmund on January 9th.
Elsewhere, Zack Steffen won his Premier League debut for Manchester City at Chelsea, making one save in a 3-1 win. Reggie Cannon helped Boavista to one point in a scoreless draw in Portugal while Sebastian Soto scored off the bench for Telstar. Shaq Moore registered the game-winning assist as Tenerife picked up a road victory at Castellon. Julian Green and Leon Flach both scored in a 2. Bundesliga showdown while Josh Sargent played 90 minutes for Werder Bremen in a losing effort.
