Bizarre goalkeeper goat makes Bayer suffer

Bayer Leverkusen briefly leads the table in the Bundesliga in the first half of the season, now the works club is even losing sight of the Champions League places. In Augsburg Bayer managed to repair a bad goalkeeper mistake at least a little bit late.
After a serious mistake by substitute goalkeeper Niklas Lomb, Bayer Leverkusen barely managed to prevent another bankruptcy. Thanks to Edmond Tapsoba, the Rhinelander saved themselves to 1-1 (0: 1) at FC Augsburg in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Nevertheless, the draw was a damper to the fight for the Champions League.  The  FCA remained without a win against the Werkself in their 20th attempt in the Bundesliga.

Florian Niederlechner benefited from Lomb’s faux pas, which the early lead was not enough (5th minute). Augsburg had to be content with a draw in the relegation battle in front of national coach Joachim Löw. Leverkusen’s deficit on a premier class place is already five points after only three wins from the last 13 competitive games. ©

 The  pressure for Bayer coach Peter Bosz, who followed the current Augsburg coach Heiko Herrlich two years ago in Leverkusen, is still increasing.

Bad moment for the replacement keeper

Exactly six years after the great appearance of the then FCA goalkeeper and now Dortmund’s Marwin Hitz, who scored the equalizer against Bayer Leverkusen in stoppage time, a goalkeeper was the focus this time very early. But quite different from what he would have liked. After a back pass from Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Lomb, who was again called up for Lukas Hradecky, who was injured in the heel, kicked past the ball. Niederlechner had no trouble slipping in from close range for the third goal of the season. After the 27-year-old Lomb had not to blame any of the six previously conceded goals in just 135 minutes, this goal was entirely on his cap.

After that, there were hardly any highlights to marvel at in the WWK Arena for a long time. Leverkusen clearly had more possession of the ball, but only sniffed the equalizer once before the break. Patrik Schick did not hit the ball under pressure from Raphael Framberger (41.). Augsburg could have increased it to 2-0 through Niederlechner, but in a counterattack he missed the goal (27th). ©

 The  FCA officials, who were loudly calling in, were angry that Tapsoba was the last man to only see yellow and not red after a foul on Daniel Caligiuri (32nd).

As on Thursday in the Europa League in the 3: 4 defeat in Bern, when Leverkusen turned up after a 3-0 break, the Werkself came out of the dressing room more powerfully in Augsburg. Mainly driven by Moussa Diaby on the left wing, the guests made it repeatedly in front of goal. But Augsburg prevented the equalizer with a lot of effort. ©

 The re was a lack of precision in their own counterattacks. In the duel between two disappointing teams in the second half of the season, the hosts hoped for a penalty kick after a whistle from referee Christian Dingert. But Caligiuri had to hand the ball back to the referee because the video assistant had recognized Ruben Vargas in an offside position (55th). It was exciting until the end, Tapsoba at least managed the draw.
