RB Leipzig’s Werner ‘feeling better’ after Besiktas substitution due to crowd noise

• Germany striker complained of dizziness during 2-0 defeat
• Ralph Hasenhüttl: ‘Such an atmosphere was too much for some’

Timo Werner is “feeling better” after he asked to be substituted due to the intense noise created by the home supporters during RB Leipzig’s Champions League defeat to Besiktas on Tuesday.

The Germany striker was withdrawn after 32 minutes of the 2-0 defeat which left the Bundesliga side bottom of Group G, having earlier asked for ear plugs in a bid to help him cope with the loud atmosphere inside the Vodafone Arena. Leipzig later revealed that Werner had complained of suffering from “circulatory problems” and dizziness, with the 21-year-old now said to be “feeling better” by the club.

European roundup: James Rodríguez inspires Bayern to Bundesliga summit

• On loan Real Madrid forward scores and assists in 3-0 win at Schalke
• Internazionale go top of Serie A despite surrendering 100% record

James Rodríguez made a stunning full debut for Bayern Munich as the Bundesliga champions returned to top spot for at least 24 hours with a 3-0 win at Schalke, while there was a change of leadership in Serie A, too, though Internazionale will be far less happy with only drawing 1-1 at Bologna, surrendering their 100% record.

For Bayern, Rodríguez scored one goal and had a hand in both the others as his side continued to ease the pressure on Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian coach came under fire after a recent loss at Hoffenheim but Tuesday’s result means Bayern have responded by scoring 10 goals without reply in their last three games.

Football transfer rumours: Eden Hazard to Real Madrid next summer?

Today’s fluff is talking in its sleep at night

According to Don Balón, Zinedine Zidane has his greedy eye on Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, who could be part of a wide-scale rebuilding project at the end of this season if it looks like Real Madrid’s current squad – and in particular their “BBC” attacking trident – are on a downward slope. David de Gea (inevitably), Paulo Dybala and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are also mentioned, with the newspaper suggesting that “if Real’s performance is sub-optimal over this campaign, after two quiet transfer windows we could see a very busy summer in 2018”, adding that Zidane has given the current side until Christmas to impress him, after which he will begin serious planning for next season.

There is news, though, about David de Gea’s immediate future. In April his £3.85m home was put up for sale (not by De Gea himself, mind – he was only renting) sparking rumours that he was about to leave Manchester for Madrid. Then in June, after the sale of the property was completed and just in time for the transfer window, he moved out. Now, three weeks after that window ended without an outbound transfer, he has moved into a new place just 500 yards from the first, a development the Sun has interpreted as “hinting at a long-term Manchester United stay”.
