Emil Forsberg's 17th-minute opener was followed by a Yussuf Poulsen hat-trick before the January signing scored the final goal just after the hour mark.

Leipzig remain third in the log with 52 points, 11 adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Haidara will hope to continue in the such vein of form when they play Augsburg on Tuesday.
