FRIMPONG!

Demirbay's dipping free-kick into the box isn't dealt with by the Augsburg defence. The ball comes out to Frimpong on the right of the box, sits up nicely and he hits it on the half volley, but it's well over from the January signing from Celtic.

AUGSBURG COMFORTABLE

A goal inside five minutes gave Augsburg an early advantage. You would've expected a Leverkusen onslaught to follow but it's been pretty comfortable for the home side, who take a lead into half-time for the first time since Matchday 11 against Schalke.
Half-time
44'

GOOD FEET

Niederlechner shows he's more than just a poacher as he runs Fosu-Mensah ragged with a number of twists and turns. He then looks to put the ball into the middle but only picks out Lomb.
42'

SCHICK DENIED

A ball over from the right evades everyone until Patrik Schick dead centre around 10 yards out. It looks like being a simple tap-in until Framberger nips in to take all the sting off the shot as it goes through to Gikiewicz.
40'

CALIGIURI OVER

He's scored a few free-kicks in his time but this was a bit of a waste from Caligiuri. It's floated over the wall with minimal power but also high and wide of the goal.

PEDERSEN TRIPPED

A third caution of the campaign for Leverkusen captain Aranguiz as he takes down Pedersen before he can get into the penalty area. Another free-kick in a dangerous position just to the left of the D.

NIEDERLECHNER HITS IT

A long punt forward by Gikiewicz and Niederlechner gets the better of Bender in a duel. The striker is then in on goal with Tapsoba racing to catch him, hits it from right of centre 18 yards out, but well over. A let-off for Leverkusen.

OFFSIDE

A rare foray forward by the home side as Caligiuri runs in behind onto a through ball, but the Italian had gone a fraction too early.

BENDER OVER

A second attempt for Leverkusen but again it's off target as a ball drops to Sven Bender after a long free-kick into the box, but the centre-back blasts well over.

HALFWAY PRESS

In stark contrast to Leverkusen's high pressing approach, Augsburg are happy to sit back and wait until Bayer get to the halfway line before beginning their press. Only Niederlechner is breaking that line, which earned him the opening goal.

PERFECT START FOR THE HOSTS

LEVERKUSEN TAKING CONTROL

QUICK START

Niederlechner's third Bundesliga goal of the season is Augsburg's quickest of the campaign. He was the last FCA player to score quicker, doing so in the first minute against Mainz in June.

OH DEAR LOMB

Niklas Lomb's dream first Bundesliga start has turned into a nightmare inside only five minutes. Augsburg's counter-attack is cut out by Fosu-Mensah and passed back to the Leverkusen goalkeeper, who takes a touch but then nudges the ball with his standing foot and allows Niederlechner the simplest of tap-ins.

MOMENTS AWAY

The teams are out in Augsburg and Sunday's Bundesliga action is about to begin.

PAST MEETS PRESENT

Games against Leverkusen are always special for Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich. The former striker played his first 75 Bundesliga games for the club (six goals) and became head coach there in 2017. He guided Die Werkself to fifth place before being dismissed at the end of the 2018/19 Hinrunde. He was replaced by Peter Bosz, who has won all five of his Bundesliga encounters with Augsburg as a coach (one with Dortmund, four with Bayer).

WHICH FORM WILL GIVE?

Augsburg have won only one of their last eight Bundesliga games at home, losing twice as many matches here this season as they’ve won (W3, L6). However, Leverkusen arrive at the WWK-Arena on the back of three straight away defeats in the league, having won each of their first five in 2020/21. The last time Bayer lost four away games in a row in the Bundesliga was 11 years ago under Jupp Heynckes.
2:03

WATCH: LEVERKUSEN EXTEND HISTORIC RUN

Bayer Leverkusen have never lost to Augsburg in 19 Bundesliga encounters. No match-up in the league has been played so many times without both teams recording at least one win. The Bavarians have in fact lost the last five by an aggregate score of 13-2. It’s their longest run of defeats against any current top-flight club, including a 3-1 loss in Leverkusen earlier this season.

TEAM NEWS

It’s six changes for Leverkusen after their 4-3 loss away at Young Boys in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. Peter Bosz has selected an entirely new back four as Jeremie Frimpong, Jonathan Tah, Aleksandar Dragovic and Daley Sinkgraven all drop to the bench. Captain Charles Aranguiz returns in place of Nadiem Amiri in midfield, while Moussa Diaby replaces Demarai Gray out wide. First-choice goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky is out with a heel injury, so 27-year-old Niklas Lomb makes only his second Bundesliga appearance and his first start.

TEAM NEWS

Heiko Herrlich makes five changes to his side - the most this season - as Augsburg seek to end a three-match losing run. Raphael Framberger makes his first appearance since December after a torn muscle, while Felix Uduokhai returns in a back four after missing last Friday’s defeat at Leipzig. Rani Khedira replaces Carlos Gruezo in midfield, Ruben Vargas comes in on the left wing and Florian Niederlechner starts up top in place of Andre Hahn, who after six straight starts has to wait for his 200th Bundesliga appearance.
