Wijnaldum bags a brace!
Playing in their home stadium, RB Leipzig started the game with confidence. Christopher Nkunku scored the opener for the Bundesliga side in the eighth minute.
Georginio Wijnaldum, who has recently struggled to get game time at PSG, scored the equalizer in less than 15 minutes. The former Liverpool star completed his brace by scoring another one five minutes before half-time.
