WATCH: NILSSON: "WE'RE HARD TO BEAT"
Bielefeld will probably be the happier of the two teams with the point. Augsburg were superior in the first half and deservedly went ahead through Oxford, but the visitors improved after the break and earned a draw thanks to Lauren's sublime volley. The hosts subsequently had two goals disallowed for offside, heightening their sense of frustration.

SARENREN BAZZEE GOAL DISALLOWED!
Another one chalked off for Augsburg! Sorenren Bazee drills in from Cordova's pass, but as was the case with Moravek's effort earlier, Cordova was offside in the build-up.
BRILLIANT FROM ORTEGA!
Caligiuri's free-kick looks destined for the top-left corner, but Ortega dives full stretch to paw it out!
Noah Sarenren Bazee
Strobl is fouled about 25 yards from goal, slightly left of centre. Caligiuri is lining it up...
MORAVEK GOAL DISALLOWED
Augsburg thought they had restored their lead almost instantly through Moravek, but it's been ruled out for offside against Cordova in the build-up.
WHAT A GOAL!
There appeared to be little danger as Augsburg headed clear a free-kick, but it fell kindly to Laursen on the edge of the D, and he volleyed in a stunning equaliser!
CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR
HUGE SAVE FROM ORTEGA!
Maier looks certain to score as he receives the ball 10 yards out on his left foot. He shoots low, but Ortega sticks out a leg and blocks for a corner!
DOUBLE CHANGE FOR AUGSBURG
Coach Weinzierl reacts to his side's lack of a consistent threat in this half by bringing on Cordova and Moravek for Zeqiri and Vargas.
BRINGING ON THE BIG GUN
Klos comes off the bench with Bielefeld needing a goal. The 33-year-old has scored one and has an assist to his name so far this season.
VARGAS MAKING MISCHIEF
The Switzerland international brings down Strobl's cross-field pass brilliantly on the right and then skips past his marker with ease. He drills a low ball across the face of goal, but Ortega gets down well to punch clear before an Augsburg shirt can arrive.
OVER FROM HACK
Hack takes a free-kick from 25 yards out. He gets it over the wall, but it can't quite dip enough to trouble Gikiewicz and sails over.
SERRA A WHISKER AWAY
The Bielefeld striker darts into the six-yard box as he tries to connect with a cross from the right. He stretches out a toe but just can't quite get the touch it needs to prod the ball over the line.
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
The second half is underway. No changes from Augsburg, but Bielefeld made two attacking substitutions during the break, with Schöpf and Fernandes replacing Wimmer and Okugawa.
AUGSBURG LEAD AT THE BREAK
It's a deserved lead for Markus Weinzierl's side, who have had the upper hand for most of the match so far. Bielefeld started to exert a bit more attacking influence as half-time approached, but they'll need more purpose and penetration if they're to find a way back.
The Bielefeld midfielder has another effort at goal from distance, but it's high and wide of the target again.
FIRST SHOT FOR BIELEFELD
Bielefeld move forward well and the ball is worked from the left back into the middle. A cross is only half-cleared and falls to Prietl, lukring just outside the Augsburg box. He strikes a fierce left-footed effort at goal but it curls well wide of the post.
It's remained an intense affair since the goal, although there haven't been any chances to speak of since then. The play has largely been concentrated in the middle third, with neither side able to hold on to possession for very long.

HOME SIDE ON TOP
FIRST FOR OXFORD
That's the English defender's first ever Bundesliga goal, coming in his 58th league appearance.
The hosts go in front from the ensuing corner. Caligiuri swings it in from the right and Oxford leaps highest on the edge of the six-yard box to power home a header!
CALIGIURI GOES CLOSE!
The veteran midfielder receives possession on the right-hand corner of the Bielefeld box, cuts onto his left foot and drills a low show towards the near post. Ortega gets down well to tip it wide for a corner though.
The Augsburg attacker receives the ball in a central position, near the edge of the Bielefeld area. He lines up a shot but drags it narrowly wide of the post. That's the clearest opportunity of the game so far.
The Bielefeld left-back delivers a curling cross into the box, but Gikiewicz is alert and comes off his line to smother the danger.
Both teams are committing plenty of players forward when they get on the ball. Neither will want to leave too many spaces at the back but they're clearly each happy to roll the dice.
HOSTS ON TOP
It's the hosts who now have a corner at the other end of the pitch but they can't work a sight on goal. The hosts are full of intent.
VISITORS WITH THE FIRST CORNER
Bielefeld have started brightly, earning a corner from their right hand side but it's juggled and then collected by Gikiewicz.
CHANGES FOR BIELEFELD
Janni Serra makes his Bundesliga starting debut here, while Schöpf is on the bench for Bielefeld for the first time this season. Club legend Klos is also among the subs for the first time this term.
