FIRST WIN WITHOUT A KRAMARIC GOAL?

Hoffenheim have only won this season in games Kramaric has scored in. The last time they earned a league victory without their star forward on the scoresheet was back on 17 June, when they beat Augsburg 3-1 away.

VARGAS BACK-HEEL

Vargas tries a def back-heel in a bid to sweep in a cross from the left. Baumann makes a tidy save, and it wouldn't have counted anyway as Vargas is flagged for offside.

KRAMARIC GOAL DISALLOWED

Grillitsch threads a lovely pass forward for Kramaric. The striker takes it around Gikiewicz and slots in from a tight angle, but it won't count because the Croatian was just offside when he made his run.

AUGSBURG PUSHING

Gumny's introduction is designed to give the away side a bit more width as they go forward. They're pushing to get a goal back here, having now seemingly recovered from conceding quickfire goals at the start of the half.

GOAL-GETTER

Grillitsch has scored his first-ever career brace today.
66'

WIDE FROM CALIGIURI

This is Augburg's best chance of the half, following good work from Vargas, He could shoot first time from near the penalty spot, but instead twists and turns to create a pocket of space. He tries to curl a shot into the far corner, but gets his angles wrong and it goes well wide.
65'

NO WAY THROUGH FOR RUDY

Bebou gets forward down the right and pulls the ball back to Rudy, arriving just inside the box. His low drive is well struck, but Gikiewicz is equal to it.
64'

HIGH AND WIDE FROM VARGAS

Richter's shot from the edge of the box is blocked, but it spins sideways into the path of Vargas. He tries a first-time shot from 20 yards but it's high, wide and not very pretty from the Swiss attacker.
62'

ATTACKING CHANGE

Augsburg are bidding to turn the game around by bringing on Germany U21 striker Richter, who replaces Gregoritsch up front.

WHAT A START FROM HOFFENHEIM!

Having missed three or four presentable chances in the first half, Hoffenheim have now scored from both opportunities this half to set the course for victory. Bebou has been influential, getting a goal and an assist in the space of five minutes.

VAR CHECK

There was a brief pause as VAR checked whether Baumgartner was obstructing Gikiewicz's view from an offside position when Bebou shot, but the goal stands!

NIEDERLECHNER CAN'T BEAT BAUMANN

Niederlechner scampers forward to collect a lovely through-ball. He's only got Baumann to beat, but the angle is a bit tight - he's on the corner of the six-yard box. There's nobody to pass to in the middle so he lashes a shot at goal that Baumann manages to block.

AUGSBURG'S EARLIEST GOAL

Caligiuri's equaliser - his first ever headed goal in the Bundesliga - was his 44th in Germany's top flight and also the earliest Augsburg have scored in a match this season. Caligiuri now has four league goals in 2020/21, his best ever haul after ten rounds of matches.
39'

WHAT A SAVE BY GIKIEWICZ!

Augsburg struggle to deal with a corner from the right and when Rudy swings the ball in at the second attempt, Kramaric gets a good head on it. It's going in, but Gikiewicz makes a fine reflex save to keep it out. Kramaric lets out a shout of frustration.
36'

VARGAS BLOCKED BY POSCH

The Augsburg attacker latches on to a long ball forward, sprinting half of the pitch to get into the box, He tries to jink his way past Posch to have a shot on goal - if he can get past him it'll surely be 2-1 - but Posch does superbly, reading his intentions and nicking the ball off his too with a vital interception.
34'

ONE SHOT, ONE GOAL

Caligiuri's goal was Augsburg's first effort on target of the game. The home side have had six shots, several of which have been from promising positions, but they haven't been clinical enough yet.

AUGSBURG EQUALISE!

Somewhat against the run of play, Augsburg are level! Uduokhai tears down the left wing and knocks the ball back to Gregoritsch. His first-time cross goes deep to the back post, where Caligiuri leaps higher than Sessegnon to head the visitors back into the game!

KRAMARIC CURLS WIDE!

Baumgartner strides forward in midfield and plays the ball to Kramaric, before continuing his run outside him on the right. That draws a defender, allowing Kramaric to cut inside into space and shoot from the edge of the box. It looks like it's bending into the top corner but ends up whistling just wide.

BAUMGARTNER DENIED BY GIKIEWICZ

The hosts go close to adding a second as Baumgartner lets fly with a fierce drive that Augsburg goalkeeper Gikiewicz is relieved to palm clear.

GOAL DROUGHT ENDED

Grillitsch's (l.) goal was his first in the Bundesliga since March 2018, ending a run of 74 league outings without scoring. His effort was Hoffenheim's first on goal in this match, and his first headed goal in the Bundesliga.
20'

OVER FROM GRILLITSCH

Excellent build-up play from Bebou, who wriggles past his marker on the right before laying the ball off to Grillitsch, arriving just outside the Augsburg box. He tries to curl a delicate shot over the goalkeeper into the far corner, but he gets too much on it and the ball sails narrowly over the bar.
17'

GRILLITSCH OPENS THE SCORING

This is a lovely goal from Hoffenheim. The ball is worked out to the left to Baumgartner, and Framberger backs off him as he dribbles into the box before floating a cross to the back post, where the unmarked Grillitsch heads home from close range.

CALIGIURI FIRES OVER

Caligiuri takes the free-kick for Augsburg. It's in a nice position, left of centre and 20 yards from goal, but his strike is way to high to trouble Baumann.
10'

FIRST GLIMPSES FROM AUGSBURG

Having settled themselves for the first 10 minutes or so, Augsburg are starting to come out of their shell a bit. Framberger had a surging run down the right just now, but his pass to Niederlechner was just too short, while they now have a free-kick just a couple of yards outside the Hoffenheim box...
8'

NEAT FROM GRILLITSCH

The Hoffenheim midfielder rides a tackle in midfield and plays the ball out wide to Posch on the right, before charging into the box to look for the return ball. It's nice play from the Austrian, but Posch's attempted cross into the middle is blocked.
5'

SESSEGNON PUSHING HIGH

The Bundesliga Rookie of the Month nominee has been involved a lot early on here, keeping wide on the left and getting forward at every opportunity. He's getting his eye in too, swinging in a couple of crosses that haven't quite had the necessary accuracy.
3'

HOSTS ON TOP

Hoffenheim have quickly established control here, with Augsburg sitting deep and allowing them to come forward. The hosts have time and space to stroke the ball around at the back, but as soon as they venture over the halfway line they are quickly closed down by a compact visiting defence.

AND WE’RE OFF!

THE STAKES

Hoffenheim are without a win in their last seven Bundesliga matches (L4 D3): the last time they picked up all three points was the 4-1 triumph over Bayern Munich on 27 September. That has left them 13th in the standings, just two points above Bielefeld in the relegation play-off spot. Still, victory here would mean they go level on points with Augsburg in the table , and above them on goal difference. Herrlich's side have taken just two of the last nine points on offer.

FOUR CHANGES FOR AUGSBURG

Augsburg coach Herrlich has made four changes to his side, more than he has between any two games this season. Framberger, Suchy, Gruezo and Gregoritsch all come in for Gumny, Khedira (both on the bench), Iago (injured) and Hahn (isolating following a positive Covid-19 test).

MUCH-CHANGED HOFFENHEIM SIDE

Following the 0-0 draw with Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday, Hoffenheim coach Hoeneß has rotated his line-up considerably, with Baumann, Vogt, Nordtveit and Rudy the only players to keep their places, with Vogt making his first Bundesliga outing since 8 November.

THE STAGE IS SET

ONE TO WATCH

Hoffenheim left-back Ryan Sessegnon is worth keeping an eye on in this game. The Tottenham Hotspur loanee has been in impressive form for Sebastian Hoeneß's side, and has a goal and an assist to his name already this term. That has helped him earn a nomination for the Bundesliga's Rookie of the Month Award for November...
