FC Augsburg – 1. FSV Mainz 05 1: 2: 05 with a last minute win against FCA



RB Leipzig - 1. FC Köln 3: 1: Nkunku dream goal paves victory against harmless billy goats

In added time, Mainz 05 wins at FC Augsburg. Bo Svensson’s side have already taken seven points.

Joy and sorrow were only a few meters apart seconds before the final whistle. In front of the FSV Mainz 05 bench, coach Bo Svensson was almost in ecstasy when “Joker” Jae-Song Lee scored in the third minute of added time to make it 2-1 (1-1), next door at FC Augsburg there was sheer horror: second home game, second defeat.

“It hurts extremely when you lose a game like that,” said Ermedin Demirovic, who had scored the interim equalizer with the hoe (35th), on Sky.

The guests had previously taken the lead through Karim Onisiwo’s third goal of the season (31′). In the end, Augsburg didn’t use the fact that goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz saved a penalty kick from Aaron Martin (62′).

“Three points were deserved throughout the game,” although the game was hard-fought,” said Mainz sports director Martin Schmidt on Sky – however, the Augsburg team helped the guests score the winning goal: a quick corner kick and Aaron’s cross they reacted too late, Lee quick-witted.”Our mistake,” said Gikiewicz.

Mainz stops losing streak against Augsburg

For Mainz, a series of five defeats in Augsburg ended with the win. With seven points from the first three games, the Rheinhessen jumped to second place in the table for the time being.

The new Augsburg coach Enrico Maaßen, on the other hand, experienced his second home defeat after the 2-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen last week. “It’s a bad feeling,” Gikiewicz admitted.

Mainz seemed a little more determined in the first half hour, which was characterized by many duels, but the opening goal came almost out of nowhere: Onisiwo scored after playing with newcomer Angelo Fulgini, his previous handball was not punishable for referee Sascha Stegemann (Niederkassel) even after studying the video.

The Augsburgers didn’t seem shocked by the deficit, but were suddenly wide awake, especially Demirovic, who came from Freiburg: After a cross pass from Felix Uduokhai, who repeatedly and determinedly intervened in the attacking game, the Bosnian steered the ball into the Mainzer with the heel, which is worth seeing Goal. In the game, which had been sluggish up to then, there was now speed.

However, promising offensive actions remained in short supply. Almost all actions were contested, resulting in numerous ball losses. “We were dominant for the last half hour,” stated Schmidt, “but we only ever had half chances.” And the best whole Gikiewicz destroyed. The Augsburg goalkeeper was powerless when Lee scored a header.

Augsburg vs. Mainz: The votes on the game

Enrico Maassen (FC Augsburg coach): “Congratulations to Mainz for the victory that was deserved in the end. Of course we are brutally disappointed when you lose the game in the 93rd minute. After the unfortunate goal in the first half, where Onisiwo clearly dropped the ball on his upper arm, we are came back well, scored a great goal to make it 1-1. In the second half we didn’t create enough chances to score, but in the end it’s unfortunate to lose like that. The ball isn’t on the corner kick, it rolls, it’s an irregular one Goal. Of course we still have to defend it better and faster. We have to wipe our mouths and be self-critical.”

Bo Svensson (FSV Mainz 05 coach): “It was a very balanced first half, there were two chances to score, both of which were taken, the result was fair at halftime. In the second half we were better, we created more chances to score and the game mostly took place in Augsburg’s half. It was lucky that we got the goal in the end, but the performance in the second half meant we deserved to win.”
