BIn a terrific comeback of three-time goalscorer Alfred Finnbogason, FC Augsburg celebrated the first home win of the season against a long matte SC Freiburg. The Icelander was at 4: 1 (2: 0) on Sunday evening at the end of the 8th game day of the Bundesliga immediately the acclaimed match winner. Only Finnbogason extended a cross from Jeffrey Gouweleeuw in the 34th minute playfully with the hoe to 2: 0 into the goal. Then the 29-year-old turned a foul penalty indebted to him in the 68th minute for the decisive 3: 1. And as an encore he put the 4: 1 after (83.). Last season, Finnbogason had also scored three times in the 3: 3 against Freiburg – amazing!
"This is a good tradition against Freiburg. It suits me to play against her. I was very hot for the game and I am glad that it worked out, "said Finnbogason:" Eight points after six games are already a good start. We wanted to signal that we are hard to beat at home. "
Caiuby scored in front of 26,488 spectators in the Augsburg Arena, the first FCA goal (19th). The team of coach Manuel Baum moved in the table with eight points to the previously three times scoring Freiburgers (7) over. The guests found by a slapstick own goal by Jonathan Schmid temporarily back in the game (49.). Finnbogasons season debut after Achilles tendon inflammation had been longed for by Augsburg fans. "He burns bright," said FCA coach Manuel Baum before the kickoff at Sky. That was true. The attacker was racketeering, was present in the top and came several times to the conclusion. The highlight of the comeback was his Hackingreffer after a precise cross from center-back Jeffrey Goouweleeuw to 2: 0. The Icelander also took responsibility for the penalty.
At the sports club, the center forward was missed, however. National player Nils Petersen was not in the squad because of a bruise on the shoulder joint. This was not enough to justify a weak performance before the break. The impact of the Augsburg had the guests nothing to oppose. Only goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow kept his team in the game. He prevented with great saves against Caiuby (15) and Marco Richter (19) an even earlier 0: 1. At Caiuby's header after Richter-Fkanke Schwolow was without a chance to defend. The defense chain of the SC was hopelessly overwhelmed.
Only a few seconds after the break Schwolow had to save the Freiburg again: An emotional distance shot from Michael Gregoritsch he cleared the corner. Shortly thereafter, the guests shortened: The substitute substitute Luca Waldschmidt shot courageously. FCA goalkeeper Andreas Luthe fended off. In the subsequent confusion in Augsburg penalty Martin Hinteregger shot at a rescue operation on the line teammate Schmid – own goal. Freiburg was back in the game.
The Augsburg domination was gone. Rani Khedira threw himself just before the goal line in a shot by Christian Günter and prevented the courageous use of the body equalizer. Even after Finnbogasons second goal Freiburg did not give up. Luthe prevented with a foot defense against the substitute Tim Kleindienst new tension. The final point Finnbogason but on submission of André Hahn.
