Augsburg Nets Five Goals in First Half

Augsburg Nets Five Goals in First Half

Darmstadt 98, newly promoted to the Bundesliga, is on a downward spiral towards relegation, having gone 17 games without a win. Their dismal performance during their recent 6-0 loss to FC Augsburg led to their fans booing them throughout the match.

The match saw ex-Darmstadt player Phillip Tietz score twice, as did Ermedin Demirovic, with Fredrik Jensen and Ruben Vargas contributing to Augsburg’s victory, which was witnessed by 17,810 spectators.

The last time Darmstadt won a game was on October 7th of the previous year, where they managed a 2-1 victory against Augsburg. Hopes were high that they could break their losing streak, but unfortunately, the game went in the opposite direction. By the 29th minute, Augsburg had already scored five times.

This led to the third-fastest 5-0 lead in Bundesliga history. Only SC Freiburg has achieved this faster in their 6-0 win against Mönchengladbach (2021) and Gladbach’s 10-0 win against Eintracht Braunschweig (1984).

All the home teams on Saturday afternoon also failed to win. In Heidenheim, Frankfurt scored a comical goal when goalkeeper Kevin Müller let a back pass from Benedikt Gimber slip through (39th). After Frankfurt’s second goal by Niels Nkounkou (49th), Marvin Pieringer of Heidenheim could only score a consolation goal (59th).

Mainz had hoped for a second consecutive home win after Jonathan Burkardt’s early goal (12th), but Gladbach equalized through Nathan Ngoumou (55th). Mainz’s Dominik Kohr was shown a yellow-red card towards the end of the game (84′).

Leipzig managed to turn around an early setback in Bochum – a free kick goal from Maximilian Wittek – with goals from Dani Olmo, Lois Openda, an own goal from Ivan Ordets, and Yussuf Poulsen. Bochum’s Moritz-Broni Kwarteng was sent off towards the end of the match (86th). Borussia Dortmund also won 2-0 at 1. FC Union. SC Freiburg and Bayern Munich had already drawn 2-2 on Friday evening.
