A goal made the difference in the game, which FC Augsburg won 2-1 against SV Werder Bremen. Observers had given both teams equally good chances of winning in advance – but only one knew how to prevail. FCA won the first leg. At that time the result was 1:0.
The 30,660 spectators had hardly sat down when the first goal was scored: Dion Drena Beljo put coach Enrico Maassen’s team ahead in the sixth minute. Jens Stage took the chance for Werder and put the ball into the net to make it 1-1 in the 16th minute. After the final whistle of the first half, it was not yet possible to say who would have the edge in the end. It went into the dressing rooms with a tie. Arne Maier paved the way for Augsburg to win when he made it 2-1 in the 46th minute. After the restart, Julian Baumgartlinger replaced Niklas Dorsch for the home team. A little later, Iago Amaral Borduchi and Mergim Berisha made a double substitution for Mads Pedersen and Ruben Vargas for FC Augsburg (68′). Ole Werner wanted to persuade Bremen to withdraw, so Mitchell Weiser and Romano Schmid came on for Leonardo Bittencourt and gave Stage new impetus (68′). With Marvin Ducksch and Anthony Jung, Ole Werner got two players from the starting line-up off the field in the 80th minute. They were replaced by Maximilian Philipp and Eren Dinkci. In the end, FCA beat SV Werder Bremen 2-1.
After Augsburg had finished the first series in 14th place, they warn that a shovel is going on. FC Augsburg is currently in ninth place in the second half of the table.
