It’s time to take a look back on the season, one that ended with our first major trophy in the DFB-Pokal!
RBL were involved in three competitions right up until the end of the season. Domenico Tedesco’s side were the best in the Bundesliga in the second half of the campaign, made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Europa League and won the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin. We also took part in a fourth competition in 2021/22, the Champions League. All in all, it was an incredibly long season, but how many games did we actually play? And who scored the most goals? Which players had the best individual statistics?
Let’s find out!
- RB Leipzig played 52 games in all competitions in 2021/22. 34 of those were in the Bundesliga, with six each coming in the Champions League, the Europa League and the DFB-Pokal.
- We played a game on average every 5.5 days.
- No German professional side played more competitive games this season.
Wins and defeats
- We won 28 of our 52 games.
- That doesn't include our Europa League round of 16 matches against Spartak Moscow, which were cancelled due to the war in Ukraine. We were subsequently handed a place in the next round.
- We drew 10 games and lost 14 times.
- Our longest unbeaten run was 15 matches from 11th February to 20th April 2022.
- Our longest winless run was four matches from 29th August to September 2021.
Goals scored and goals conceded
- We had a positive goal difference in all four competitions.
- We scored 111 goals in all competitions. That works out at 2.1 per game.
- At the other end, we only conceded 60 goals - equating to 1.1 per game.
