Take the train from Leipzig Airport to Leipzig Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) that runs over 30 minutes.

Note that the fast and fancy ICE trains also stop at the airport on their way to Leipzig: you will need a different ticket for those (6 EUR) -- from the DB ticket machine. If you buy the ticket for the Regional train (RE) it will also be valid within Leipzig.
