FC Augsburg – Bayer Leverkusen 1: 4: Bayer 04 dismantled FCA after own goal madness



FC Augsburg - TSG Hoffenheim 0: 4: Kramaric show!  Hoffenheim dismantles FCA

Bayer Leverkusen have reinforced their ambitions in the Bundesliga thanks to the kind help of their favorite opponent. The team of coach Gerardo Seoane deservedly won 4-1 (2-1) at FC Augsburg, but benefited mainly from two own goals within eleven minutes in their second win of the season.

Second home game, again four goals conceded and two of them still scored – Rafal Gikiewicz, clearly shocked goalkeeper of FC Augsburg, didn’t really know what to say. “That doesn’t look good,” he said after the strange 1: 4 (1: 2) against a strong Bayer Leverkusen and complained: “We’ll score three goals by half time and are 1: 2 behind.”

While Leverkusen initially even took the lead in the standings with their first away win since March, Augsburg was stunned – not least by Florian Niederlechner, who also hit his own net after Iago’s own goal (3rd) (14th). “The first own goal was slapstick, and my own goal – also absolutely bitter,” said the striker, who then also hit the right goal (30th).

After half-time, Augsburg took the risk, “and if you watch the whole game,” claimed Niederlechner, his team was closer to 2: 2 than Leverkusen to 3: 1. However: Daniel Caligiuri (54th) and Niederlechner (61st) missed the good chances to equalize, Leverkusen countered ice cold – after a corner of the FCA: Patrik Schick decided the game (75th), Florian Wirtz set the end point (81st). ) after Gikiewicz missed the ball while running out.

One man’s sorrow, the other’s joy. “I am”, said Kerem Demirbay, “very happy with the team. I am proud of everyone.” Leverkusen is “one unit”, “something is formed”, right up to the kit manager, added the convincing ball distributor: He only had something to complain about at Niederlechner’s own goal: “That wasn’t an own goal. I shoot, he touches his head. “

Augsburg also without a win in their 21st game against Bayer

Either way: Augsburg, who lost 4-0 to TSG Hoffenheim on matchday one, continued their series of horrors against Bayer: There has been no victory in 21 league matches so far, but they have now lost their 14th. The team of coach Markus Weinzierl, which started the season so confidently, did not manage more than the point at Eintracht Frankfurt and a goal of their own.

After three games, Leverkusen already has seven points on their account. “We are on the right track,” said Demirbay. After the international break, the Werkself know how this path will continue. The opponent is then Borussia Dortmund.
