      Sabitzer strike rescues debutants RB Leipzig

      After four promotions in seven seasons, RB Leipzig made an impressive Bundesliga debut on Sunday, twice coming from behind as Marcel Sabitzer's equaliser sealed a 2-2 draw at Hoffenheim. Founded in 2009 by Austrian energy drink's firm Red Bull, RasenBallsport Leipzig are widely unpopular amongst German football fans, due to the commercialism they represent and resentment caused by their sponsor's deep pockets. For example, a severed bull's head was thrown onto the playing area at last Saturday's German Cup defeat at Dynamo Dresden and some fans of Borussia Dortmund, Leipzig's opponents for their first home league match in a fortnight, plan a boycott.
