Monday night blues. German fan fury triggers protests at Eintracht Frankfurt

Liverpool-bound midfielder Naby Keita sparks 22-man brawl during RB Leipzig's loss to Eintracht Frankfurt

But the 23-year-old was involved in a on-field scuffle during their clash against Frankfurt on Monday evening.

The match was the first of five Monday night games scheduled to be played in the Bundesliga this season, a decision which has angered supporters.

Fans left the terraces and occupied the inner area to protest before kickoff, while others displayed banners blasting the DFB, including "Football-mafia DFB".

Within the fractious atmosphere one fan even died of a heart attack, according to Associated Press.

RB Leipzig raced into a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute following a wonderful passing move which was finished off with a calm first-time strike by Jean-Kevin Augustin from Konrad Laimer's square pass.

Leipzig were awarded a penalty for an apparent foul by Rebic on Marcel Sabitzer, but it was taken back on video analysis as Sabitzer was marginally offside in the build up.

They go third, a point behind Borussia Dortmund, and while much of the post-match reaction will focus on the protests that delayed the game, the plaudits should go to a team who have won three of their last four Bundesliga games and are finally delivering consistently.

Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuettl responded with sarcastic applause.

Before the beginning of the second half, hundreds of green tennis balls were thrown onto the pitch and toilet rolls were hurled at the goals, causing a further delay. The club was apparently aware in advance of the action as a large team of helpers came out to clear the pitch with leaf blowers.

Not everyone accepted the protest.

Fans throw tennis balls and streamers onto the pitch at the start of the second half. His final whistle finally ended the fans' whistling.
