The fifth minute had just started when Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey played the ball to his goalkeeper. Lomb accepted the pass with a first contact, with the second he wanted to knock it past Florian Niederlechner, who was now charging towards him – but Lomb stepped into the void. Niederlechner picked up the ball and played it into the goal, he has probably never scored an easier goal in the Bundesliga.

Lomb did not have the opportunity to make up for his mistake from the beginning in Augsburg. Because over long distances, both teams found it difficult to create clear opportunities. Niederlechner (27th) and László Bénes (33rd) as well as Daniel Caligiuri (40th) each shot over the goal with a free kick for the hosts. Bayer even managed a shot on Augsburg goal after 48 minutes, Moussa Diaby failed with him on Augsburg goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz. Leverkusen’s best opportunity was missed by Jeremie Frimpong when he shot over the goal from a half-right position (75th).
While Leverkusen has to fear for participation in the Champions League after this 1-1 draw, the FCA has five points ahead of the relegation place.
