  • Davie Selke (90'+2')

Hamburg SV 0-4 RB Leipzig

Leipzig continued their excellent start to their first season in the Bundesliga with a 4-0 triumph at Hamburg moving them up to second in the standings, behind Bayern Munich.

Emil Forsberg gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot in the 66th minute with Timo Werner adding a second six minutes later.

Werner completed his brace with Leipzig's third of the game in the 77th minute -- from Forsberg's assist -- before Davie Selke, formerly of Hamburg's local rivals Werder Bremen, got in on the act to make it four.

Hamburg left the field to a chorus of boos from the Volksparkstadion faithful as Leipzig underlined once again, after beating Dortmund last weekend, that they are not in the Bundesliga just to make up the numbers.
