Cape Town - RB Leipzig’s chances of qualifying from the Champions League group stages took a blow on Wednesday night as they went down to a 3-1 defeat at Porto.
The defeat leaves the Bundesliga side in third position in Group G on four points, two points behind second-placed Porto while group leaders Besitkas are on 10 points.
Ralf Hasenhuttl’s side will probably need to win both their remaining games - away at Monaco and at home to Besitkas if they are to stand a chance of qualifying.
The third-placed Bundesliga side were trailing to a 13th minute Hector Herrera goal before halftime substitute Timo Werner netted his first Champions League goal to level the scores early in the second half.
But a diving header from Danilo and Maxi Pereira's stoppage-time goal killed off Leipzig and leaves the German side with a tough task to qualify in their first-ever Champions League campaign.
Speaking after the game Hasenhuttl said that his side were not getting the results their play deserved.
"We have three incredibly tough games behind us. We're not being rewarded for our efforts at the moment," he said.
