Goals: 0-1 Volland (47'), 1-1 Danso (49')
Unbeaten in their last five, Leverkusen started on the front foot as Leon Bailey cut inside and made Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz work from 16 yards. Jonathan Tah headed narrowly over from a fine Julian Brandt cross, but an injury to defender Sven Bender knocked Bayer off their stride. Augsburg seized the momentum, with Michael Gregoritsch going close on a number of occasions. The hosts also had a penalty decision overturned by Video Assist late in the first half.
Augsburg fell behind early in the second half as Kevin Volland made the most of a slip from Kevin Danso to slam in his sixth Bundesliga goal of the campaign. Danso redeemed himself less than two minutes later, however, poking in the equaliser after Gregoritsch had headed against the crossbar. Caiuby struck the woodwork and Lars Bender headed into the arms of Hitz, but the sides could not be separated.
