Bundesliga club FC Augsburg sees itself prepared for the weeks of truth despite the last second equalization against Bayer Leverkusen. “We played very passionately. If you get 1-1 so late, it’s of course very bitter, but we can take a lot of positive things with us,” said striker Florian Niederlechner before the eminently important games in the relegation battle at FSV Mainz 05 next Sunday and at Hertha BSC (March 6th).

“If we perform like that, we will get the points we need. That was a step forward. We need this passion and mentality to continue,” said FCA coach Heiko Herrlich.
The late equalizer against Bayer with the last action of the game by Edmond Tapsoba (90 + 4) was all the more bitter for the FCA. Niederlechner gave Augsburg an early lead after a slapstick insert from Bayer substitute keeper Niklas Lomb (5th).
The refore, against Mainz and Hertha “only the result and the points count”. That, according to Uduokhai, “will not be beautiful football”.
