Borussia Dortmund slump to 2-0 defeat away at Augsburg.
Favre Lucien’s side suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat away at Augsburg that overshadowed an impressive performance last weekend.
Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland were among the names that lit up last weekend’s impressive 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach last Saturday.
Against Augsburg, the visitors endured a torrid visit with their efforts frustrated by a stubborn line of defense marshaled by Augsburg goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz.
While they dominated the first half, Dortmund were not able to convert their chances to goal with the hosts taking the lead through Felix Uduokhai – which was their only chance in the half.
Former Schalke player Daniel Caligiuri made it two in the second half when he shrugged off a challenge from Dortmund’s Thomas Meunier and shoot past Dortmund’s keeper Roman Burki.
In other matches, Union Berlin, salvaged a 1-1 draw at Gladbach thanks to Nico Schlotterbeck’s late equalizer. Marcus Thuram scored with a deflected header for Gladbach in the 56th.
Bayer Leverkusen and Leipzig drew 1-1, and promoted sides Arminia Bielefeld and Stuttgart enjoyed wins over Cologne and Mainz, respectively.
Joan Simun Edmundsson scored for Bielefeld to win 1-0, and Stuttgart fought back to win in Mainz 4-1.
Schalke was to host Werder Bremen later, hoping to end a 17-game run without a win. Fans were allowed to attend, but those plans were canceled earlier Saturday due to a high number of new coronavirus infections in the area.
