Next match in
The second half is underway at the Weser-Stadion. No changes for either side during the break, with the party atmosphere in full flow for the home side.
MÖHWALD MAKES IT FOUR!
The ball is flicked on at the near post by Pizarro and deflects out to around the penalty spot where substitute Möhwald is waiting, and the midfielder smashes home a crisp finish to make it 4-0!
The 40-year-old comes on to replace Johannes Eggestein, making his 16th appearance of the season and 14th as a substitute.
JI FIRES WIDE
The South Korean international is in a great position on the edge of the box after controlling a pass into him from the left wing. But his left-footed strike drags wide of Pavlenka's goal.
FINNBO LIMPS OFF
Not a great sign for Manuel Baum as Alfred Finnbogason is replaced by Andre Hahn with what appears to be a knock, as he limps into the dugout. Could add salt to the Augsburg wounds should he be injured.
Augsburg look no closer to finding a way back into this game with 15 minutes played in the second half. Florian Kohfeldt's Bremen side remain in control for the most part, although Kobel has also yet to be tested with a shot on goal in the second half. A moment of magic needed to change this game at this point.
KRUSE NOT IN CRUISE CONTROL
Maximilian Eggestein breaks away down the right wing and looks up for options in the box, picking out a pass to Max Kruse perfectly. The Bremen captain is all alone at the back post but sends a right-footed shot high over the crossbar, to his own disgust.
A HALF OF CHANCES TAKEN
Augsburg had more attempts on target in the first half (9) than Bremen (7), but the home side have three goals to their visitors' none. Finnbogason, Gregoritsch and co. will be looking to find their finishing boots before Bremen score again in the second half if this game is to change in any way.
PAVLENKA STOPS GREGORITSCH
The Austrian is played in on goal after lovely interplay in the build-up, but he can't beat Pavlenka after attempting to take the ball around him from inside the box. Pavlenka's left foot doing the business.
EGGESTEIN SHOOTS WIDE
The young striker did well to bring the ball down in the box after a long ball forward, but after letting it bounce before taking his shot, he'll be disappointed to have seen his shot fly over the crossbar from a tight angle.
RASHICA FORCED OFF HERE
The Bremen defence will be happy to see the back of Milot Rashica here, who is going off with what appears to be a slight knock. But you could say he has more than done his job today with two goals already. Kevin Möhwald has come on to replace him.
OH WHAT A GOAL FROM RASHICA!
Two in as many minutes for the home side and this is a stunner. Rashica races away with the ball down the left wing before cutting inside beyond Oxford's challenge. He then curls the ball into the far top corner beyond Kobel's reach with a perfect first-time hit. Three goals inside half an hour!
IT'S EGGESTEIN! AND JOHANNES!
Augustinsson's free-kick drifts into the box and falls loose after Kruse had attempted a volley at goal. It fell straight to Eggestein, who smashed the ball into the top corner to double the home side's lead with his third goal of the season.
OXFORD HEADS OVER
A great chance for the central defender who had remained up the pitch from a corner. The ball came swinging into the box from the left wing and straight onto Oxford's head, but he had little control of it as the ball sailed high over the Bremen crossbar.
The away side have been the better of the two since going behind. Finnbogason has been getting involved in the build-up play, but Pavlenka remains untested in the Bremen goal despite the pressure around him.
GEBRE SELASSIE'S HEADER OFF THE LINE!
A corner swings in from the right and Gebre Selassie beats his marker to reach the ball in the middle of the six-yard box, heading down towards goal. But Kobel is positioned perfectly to parry the ball clear.
FINNBO WARMING UP...
Ji does well down the right wing before crossing into the box from the byline. The ball reaches the head of Finnbogason, but the Icelandic striker can't get his header on target from around seven yards out.
RASHICA OPENS THE SCORING
The home side have taken an early lead here thanks to Milot Rashica. A lovely flick inside from Kruse to Klaassen, who then plays the Kosovan in behind the Augsburg defence. He beats Stafylidis and opens space for a shoot, placing the ball in the bottom corner!
BREMEN BIRTHDAY CHOREO!
The home fans have produced a choreography in their stand behind a goal at the Weser-Stadion to celebrate the club's 120th birthday. As the club's hymn - "Lebenslang Grün-Weiß" (Lifelong Green-White) - rings out in the stadium, the atmosphere is outstanding here with the rain pouring down. The home side are also wearing a one-off celebratory kit, which sold out in the club shop in just a matter of hours during the week.
FIRST START FOR OXFORD
Having started Augsburg's midweek DFB Cup Round of 16 win in the middle of defence, 20-year-old Englishman Reece Oxford keeps his place to start for the first time in the Bundesiga in Augsburg colours.
SARGENT ON THE BENCH
The American teenage striker is on the substitutes bench for Bremen today, with Johannes Eggestein, Max Kruse and Milot Rashica preferred in attack.
Kobel – Schmid, Khedira, Oxford, Stafylidis – Ji, Moravek, Baier (c), Max – Gregoritsch – Finnbogason
Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Langkamp, Moisander, Augustinsson – M. Eggestein, Bargfrede, Klaassen – J. Eggestein, Kruse (c), Rashica
