Gladbach’s coach had no reason to change his starting eleven, especially since Christoph Kramer to Corona forced break initially only on the bank sat and Florian Neuhaus took the defensive part in midfield next to Koné.

In the first home game before greater spectator scales, the hosts came against highly continuous Augsburgs to first opportunities by Hofmann and Neuhaus – both missed the gate as close as Alassane Pléa in the 24th minute.

The Gladbacher dominated the game, combined to the penalty area, but then missed the urge to the goal. Whether Hofmann or Pléa – often missing cold cutishness. It made better Koné, who caught a soulful edge of Pléa with his head and achieved the deserved 1: 0 lead after half an hour.

Guests stayed dangerous to standards, at counterattacks, staggered patterless and had a highly motivated offensive player in the team, which lurked on every occasion. But with the first chance after the restart, the hosts increased by Hofmann, who transformed a pass by Bensbaini directly to 2: 0 and had the game under control.
