|Commanders and leaders|
| Lennart Torstensson|
| Hans Georg von Arnim-Boitzenburg|
Torstensson used the Third division, led by newly-appointed General Michael Stearns, as bait, thinking that von Arnim would see Stearns as a novice showing his inexperience. The Saxon cavalry charge, which also involved some Polish hussars, was broken by the USE's volley guns and APCs.
Torstensson had two cavalry regiments in reserve, for the purpose of intercepting John George. The Elector of Saxony attempted to flee to Bavaria, which meant going through the mountains of the Vogtland, where he was killed by local rebels led by Georg Kresse.
Von Arnim retreated to Leipzig with his remaining army.
