The FC Augsburg had to attend on Saturday Borussia Monchengladbach compete and wanted to break the lousy series in Borussia-Park. Despite numerous chances and a long majority, it was ultimately only enough to score 1: 1 for the foals.
Gates: 1: 0 Neuhaus (5th), 1: 1 Caligiuri (88th)
Bes. Incident: Yellow-red for Framberger (Augsburg / 66.)
After just 20 seconds, Augsburg’s Finnbogason was free before summer, but the Gladbach keeper was able to parry. However, it didn’t take Borussia long to process the shock. Neuhaus completed after five minutes from a distance, after Stindl and Embolo’s attempts had previously been blocked.
The foals then wanted to score the second goal, but Augsburg held themselves harmless for the time being. Embolo missed the sure 2-0 about ten minutes before the break when he involuntarily did not perform his header well in front of the box.
Augsburg now showed a certain severity, but warnings remained in short supply.
The guests also had a couple of promising opportunities, but all in all Borussia deserved the brief break lead.
The home side also dominated in the first 20 minutes of the second half, but without putting too many offensive accents. After an hour, it was Embolo again who missed the second goal when his finish was deflected by Gikiewicz to the post.
Shortly afterwards, the Augsburg’s tough pace had its revenge when Framberger, who had just been substituted, flew off the pitch in the 66th minute with a yellow-red. But even with ten men, the guests had the chance to equalize after 72 minutes through Khedira, when Sommer had to save strongly.
Shortly before the final whistle, Borussia was punished for their usury and administrative mode when Caligiuri’s deflected shot landed at 1: 1 in Gladbach’s goal.
Shortly afterwards Zakaria made his comeback with the foals when he came into the game for Neuhaus, but this did not change anything in the ultimately sobering result.
