Nuremberg goalkeeper Fabian Bredlow saved a penalty but that didn’t make up for the six goals he had already conceded as his team lost 6-0 at Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

With more than an hour gone, Tim Leibold was sent off as the last defender for bringing down Timo Werner. But Werner, who had scored twice already for Leipzig, saw his spot kick saved in a rare moment of success for the visitors.
