The Guinea international played an outstanding role as his side secured a memorable victory over the Bavarians in Sunday’s league tie

RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita has been named German Bundesliga Man of the Matchday for week 27.

The recognition comes as a reward for the 23-year-old's heroics after he scored a goal and provided an assist as the Bulls defeated Bayern Munich 2-1.

Keita ensured both sides headed into the break levelled with his 37th-minute effort after Sandro Wagner broke the deadlock in the 12th minute.

Shortly after the restart, the Liverpool-bound midfielder set up Timo Werner for the match-winning goal in the 56th minute as Ralph Hasenhuttl's men grab their first ever win over the record Bundesliga champions.
