WATCH: NILSSON: "WE'RE HARD TO BEAT"

90'
+ 5

SPOILS SHARED

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.

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!

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.

PRIETL AGAIN

The Bielefeld midfielder has another effort at goal from distance, but it's high and wide of the target again.
40'

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.
38'

MIDFIELD BATTLE

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.

SCENES IN AUGSBURG

Oxford's goal was the first time this season that they have scored from a set piece and with a header. It's also the first goal Bielefeld have conceded under head coach Frank Kramer to have arrived from a corner or free-kick.

HOME SIDE ON TOP

The goal was the logical consequence of Augsburg's dominance so far. They've been better across the statistical spectrum, and have been far more dangerous in the final third.

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.
17'

VARGAS CHANCE!

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.

LAURSEN CROSS

The Bielefeld left-back delivers a curling cross into the box, but Gikiewicz is alert and comes off his line to smother the danger.

OPEN OPENING

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.
