Mathew Leckie’s FC Ingolstadt pulled off the biggest upset of the Bundesliga season, only for the Caltex Socceroo to get sent off in stoppage-time in a dramatic clash in Bavaria.
Despite sitting last in the German top flight Ingolstadt became the first side this season to defeat RB Leipzig, with Roger’s 12th-minute header enough for a 1-0 win.
