(EFE) – Bayer Leverkusen overwhelmed Augsburg at WWK Arena (1-4) to assault the leadership of the Bundesliga, which this weekend reaches the third day.
The team of the Swiss of Spanish origin Gerardo Seoane, Betis rival in the Europa League, is enjoying a hopeful start. After drawing on the first date with Unión Berlin, they won last weekend at Borussia Monhengladbach. This Saturday, he added another three points in Augsburg.
Seoane’s team had some fortune, which got the game on track thanks to two own goals. The first at three minutes, from the Brazilian Iago. At a quarter of an hour it was Florian Niederfechner who carried the ball into his own goal.
The Augsburg player retaliated shortly after when he scored the home side’s only goal in the 30th minute.
The visitor’s income could still be higher, but the VAR annulled a goal to Moussa Diaby by hand.
Bayer Leverkusen rounded off their victory in the second half, in the final stage, by means of Czech Patrik Schik, who made the third, and then with a target from Florian Wirtz, which culminated a pass from Kerem Demirbay.
Goal difference makes Bayer Leverkusen lead ahead of Freiburg, which also has seven points. The last three achieved at the Mercedes Benz Arena (2-3) in Stuttgart in a duel resolved in the first half.
