Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti denies Franck Ribery rift

Philipp Lahm said Bayern Munich "always believed [they] could turn the game around" as the Bundesliga champions produced a dramatic last-gasp fightback, winning a nine-goal thriller 5-4 against nearest challengers RB Leipzig.

Thiago Alcantara halved the deficit on the hour mark, but Werner quickly restored the two-goal cushion to nearly certainly give Leipzig the win.

It was the first time Bayern took the lead having fallen behind after 65 seconds at Leipzig's Red Bull Arena.

However, the Bundesliga's only club from former East Germany says they will not stop signing youngsters with Ajax's German winger Amin Younes, 23, the latest starlet tipped to join them for next season.

Yussuf Poulsen's deflected shot put Leipzig 3-1 up two minutes after the restart, before Thiago reduced the arrears on the hour-mark with a close range header.

"It's a dream game for us and we have nothing to lose".




"Nevertheless, Leipzig showed they deserve to be up where they are".

Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti called the match an "absolutely insane game".

With both clubs having already qualified directly for next season's Champions League, Bayern's coach Carlo Ancelotti says RB Leipzig have proved they have a big future after an impressive first Bundesliga season.

Despite the title being no longer at stake, the match was being hyped up as a chance for the newcomers to the league to assert that they are capable of competing with the best team in Germany.

And Ancelotti expects Ralph Hasenhuttl's men, who were only promoted last season, to be just as competitive next season. Leipzig were very strong at the beginning, we were better towards the end.

Earlier this week, Kicker claimed that Bayern are open to selling the 19-year-old if they receive a €35 million (£29.5m) bid. But it is just the start of a great era for them.

Ribery has played 30 games in all competitions for the Bavarian giants this season, scoring four goals. Questions will be asked of Bayern's defence, which shipped four goals for the first time since losing 4-1 at Wolfsburg in January 2015.
