Leipzig hang on to last UCL spot despite draw

RB Leipzig scored in added time through Willi Orban to snatch a 1-1 draw at Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday and secure their Champions League berth for next season with a fourth-place finish in the Bundesliga as their opponents were relegated. 

Leipzig needed at least a point to make sure of a top-four finish, but their job was made easier after Freiburg lost 2-1 at Bayer Leverkusen to fall short on the last matchday. 

Janni Serra scored for Arminia in the 70th minute, but Orban made sure of a point in stoppage time. 

Leipzig join champions Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and third-placed Leverkusen in the Champions League.
