Hummels reveals secret to beating brilliant Leipzig

Mats Hummels believes that exploiting the space
behind RB Leipzig's high line will be key to Bayern
Munich's chances of victory on Wednesday.
The champions host Ralph Hasenhuttl's
surprise title contenders at the Allianz Arena with
the sides level on points ahead of the final game
before the mid-season break.
Leipzig have taken the Bundesliga by storm in their
first term, having lost just once in 15 matches,
while only Bayern boast a better goal difference.
And Hummels has told his team-mates to look for
ways to find space behind their attacking line in
order to create chances to win.
"We'll have to fight hard 30 metres in front of our
goal to get possession of the ball," the
defender told Bild.
"We have to move a lot, create some play so that
we can get them running without the ball. With
teams that press high like that, there's often space
behind the first line of attack - and we have to find
this space.
"I've been following them since early on. They were
on a very high level from day one. Nobody
expected how well they would do. But they're a
team you like to watch.
"There are always a few solutions. You can get an
advantage with good analysis."
