Promoted Leipzig beats Bremen 3-1 to move 2nd in Bundesliga

BERLIN (AP) Naby Keita struck twice as promoted Leipzig continued its remarkable run by beating Werder Bremen 3-1 Sunday to go second in the Bundesliga.

Keita scored in both halves as Leipzig, still unbeaten for a Bundesliga record eight games, closed to within two points of leader Bayern Munich.

Keita broke the deadlock minutes before the break. The Guinea midfielder had a fortunate bounce of the ball to get past one defender, produced a quick turn of foot to go past another, and then rounded the goalkeeper to score his third league goal from a closing angle.
