Defender Philipp Max (41) scored in front of 13,758 spectators with a directly converted free kick the goal for Augsburg, which meets after the international break with Hertha BSC, the crippling 1 FC Cologne and FSV Mainz 05 on teams from the second half of the table. The harmless Ostwestfalen keep after the 11th matchday the red lantern.
The game started furiously. The SCP sought his luck on the offensive, striker Streli Mamba could be stopped in the penalty area by Raphael Framberger only by a foul. Captain Klaus Gjasula forgave the penalty penalty with a harmless shot into the lower right corner – FCA keeper Tomas Koubek parried (5th).
Inaccuracies made sure that Augsburg at the beginning had hardly dangerous scenes. Paderborn convinced only by pace, but also owed precision. The playful level of the match between the last and the previous 16-table. was – as expected – manageable.
Paderborn allows too many Augsburg chances
And so many opportunities resulted from mistakes that were increasingly accumulating on the part of the hosts. The eye-catching Augsburg Florian Niederlechner missed the first FCA opportunity, when he was released after a mistake in the Paderborn game in the formation of the sixteenth, but clearly scored the goal (30). In the same minute, the 29-year-old had recently come to an unplaced header. Ruben Vargas awarded another guest opportunity (38th).
The reward of the now bolder guests followed a standard. Max was aiming for the right corner from a central position 25 meters from the goal. Curious: The ball jumped directly out of the gate, so the Augsburg jubilation failed initially muted.
The Bavarian Swabians took their good stage in the second half, where Vargas with a touch SCP goalkeeper Leopold Zingerle forced to a parade (53). Paderborn fell out of the game only a little. Former Under-21 international Abdelhamid Sabiri (68) failed with a free-kick to FCA keeper Koubek.
The newcomer drew now some courage. Because Augsburg played his offense actions too harmless, the game remained exciting.
