But Rafal Gikiewicz in the FCA gate parped greatly. Only eight minutes later, Robert Gumny presented the leadership hit on the silver tray with a bad air hole onisiwo.
No access to strong Mainzer
The Augsburgs got no access to extremely bite and thoughtless Mainzer at all, even after the second goal by Bell did not change it. The 05s were able to switch in the game buildup at will and switches, the driving and combatjugal guests hardly made a serious resistance and were also allowed to complain about the 0: 3 by U21 international Burkardt.
The strong Onisiwo (35th) and Burkardt (40th) gave more top-class opportunities. After the break, Augsburg at least once recorded some longer ball possessions – too, because Mainz removed some pace. Also a good chance of Ruben Vargas (57th) jumped out.
