Nigeria striker Taiwo Awoniyi was on the losing side as his club Mainz 05 were totally outclassed by rampaging RB Leipzig on Sunday.
Mainz barely gets into gear throughout the game that saw Leipzig scored five and kept a clean sheet as well.
Awoniyi started the game once more from the bench and was introduced in the 61st minutes, but he failed to repeat last week’s heroics display.
The game was played behind closed doors, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it provided some entertainment and it took Werner only 11 minutes to break the deadlock after connecting with Konrad Laimer’s low cross.
Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer added further goals against the run of play before Werner made it 4-0 from close range, and he completed his hat-trick with an expertly-taken lob late on.
