Chelsea transfer target Timo Werner set a Bundesliga record after scoring a hat-trick in RB Leipzig’s 5-0 thrashing of Mainz on Sunday.
Werner became the first player in 21 years to score two hat-tricks against the same opponent in the same Bundesliga season.
Werner scored a hat-trick in RB Leipzig’s 8-0 thrashing of Mainz in November and repeated the feat as they romped to a 5-0 win at Opel Arena on Sunday.
Werner’s goal tally for the 2019-20 Bundesliga campaign now stands at 24 in just 27 games – the best single-season return of his career so far. He has scored 30 goals in all competitions.
