A new failure for Leverkusen, the top 4 seems an increasingly distant dream22-02-2021
Augsburg and Leverkusen ended in a draw 1:1 in a match of the 22nd round of the Bundesliga, which turns into another blow to the ambitions of the guests to finish in the Champions League zone. The guests have only one victory in their last five matches in the championship and are already six points behind the fourth Eintracht (Frankfurt).
The hosts opened the score in the fifth minute after a great mistake by the aspirin goalkeeper Niklas Lomb, who gave the goal to Florian Niederlachner. He could have scored in the 27th minute, but sent the ball from close range over the crossbar. In the 55th minute, the referee pointed to the white dot for the hosts after the intervention of Edmond Tapsoda in the penalty area, but the penalty was canceled after reconsideration of the situation with VAR.
It was Tapsoda who scored for Bayer Leverkusen in the last second of the match after Demarai Gray`s cross and unfocused intervention by the Augsburg defenders. In the next round Leverkusen will meet Freiburg, and Augsburg will visit Mainz 05.
