Dortmund stunned by Augsburg

Champion Bayern Munich travel to Hoffenheim Sunday

Update : 26 Sep 2020, 10:05 PM

Bundesliga title hopeful Borussia Dortmund suffered a blow in a 2-0 defeat at Augsburg Saturday, surrendering without a fight as Daniel Caligiuri set up the first goal and scored the second in his 300th league game.

Despite Dortmund having close to 80% possession for much of the first half, it was Augsburg who scored when Felix Uduokhai connected with a Caligiuri free kick in the 40th minute with their first chance of the match.

Dortmund lacked the magic from their young stars that helped them cruise past Borussia Moenchengladbach in their Bundesliga opener last week, with Erling Braut Haaland, Giovanni Reyna and Jude Bellingham without a single chance for more than 70 minutes and Jadon Sancho struggling to find space.

Augsburg remained disciplined after the break and scored again with the 32-year-old Caligiuri charging through, holding off defender Thomas Meunier and firing in to leave the visitors desperately scrambling to score for the remainder of the game.

Champion Bayern Munich, who won their fourth title of the year Wednesday with a Super Cup win over Sevilla, travel to Hoffenheim Sunday.
