Werner was on fire today. He scored the hat trick, but easily could have had 2-3 more. Leipzig looked strong. They were in complete control of this match and really not threatened at all. Mainz looked lifeless at times and their spirits were definitely broken. Too many defensive breakdowns with unmarked men in the box set up a couple of easy goals. Leipzig took the game right too them and they never let up. Even late with all of their subs taken, Leipzig continued to push. Loved the crowd noise on the broadcast! Really added to the experience!
