MANUEL NEUER committed a huge error in Bayern Munich's mad clash with RB Leipzig on Saturday.
First hosted second in the Bundesliga with the visitors getting the early breakthrough thanks to his rush of blood.
Bayern were caught cold on the counter and Christopher Nkunku bore down on goal.
But the midfielder was still a full 30 yards out, giving Neuer a sniff at clearing the pass away.
Ever the one for an adventure out of his area, the German ran out but could not beat Nkunku to the ball.
And the Leipzig star toed the ball around the goalkeeper to create a clear path to goal – which he duly finished off.
Alas, it did not take Bayern long to stake their claim for top spot.
England youth international Jamal Musiala was subbed on after 25 minutes and quickly made his mark with a delicious drive from range.
Thomas Muller then gave Munich the lead before Leipzig were back in it via Justin Kluivert.
At 2-2 after only 36 minutes, it was no surprise to see the scoring continue after the break.
A well-worked Leipzig move saw a cross from the left meet the unmarked Emil Forsberg to head them ahead once more, yet Muller scored again for 3-3.
Julian Nagelsmann's side will now prepare for their huge Champions League clash with Manchester United on Tuesday.
Both sides kicked off on Saturday evening with the Red Devils winning away to West Ham.
