Bundesliga: Augsburg stuns Dortmund, Leipzig held by Leverkusen

Despite Dortmund having close to 80 per cent possession for much of the first half, Haaland, Reyna and Bellingham could not manage a single chance for over 70 minutes.

Bundesliga title hopeful Borussia Dortmund suffered a blow in a 2-0 defeat at Augsburg on 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 to nod in with the Bavarians' first chance of the match.

Dortmund lacked the magic from its young stars that helped it cruise past Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-0 in its Bundesliga opener last week.

Dortmund striker Erling Haaland had to wait until the 90th minute for his first opportunity, while Giovanni Reyna and Jude Bellingham were largely anonymous and playmaker Jadon Sancho struggled to find space.

Augsburg remained disciplined after the break and struck again through the 32-year-old Caligiuri to leave the visitor desperately scrambling to score for the remainder of the game.

But not even the introduction of fit-again Marco Reus and Julian Brandt in the second half could turn things around for Dortmund.

Fellow Champions League club RB Leipzig also dropped points, settling for a 1-1 draw at Bayer Leverkusen after taking the lead through Emil Forsberg in the 14th minute.

A missile by Kerem Demirbay six minutes later earned a point for the host.

Schalke 04 continued its free fall with a 3-1 loss at home to Werder Bremen courtesy of Niclas Fuellkrug's hat-trick.

Mark Uth scored a stoppage time goal for the host, which is now without a win in its last 18 consecutive league games and with coach David Wagner's future in doubt.

Schalke also went down to 10 men after Ozan Kabak was sent off with a second booking. Kabak could face further action after he was caught by cameras spitting at an opponent in an incident that went unnoticed by the referee.

Gladbach is still waiting for its first win after drawing 1-1 at home to Union Berlin, while Mainz 05, which had to deal with a one-day players' strike in midweek, lost 4-1 to visiting VfB Stuttgart.

Champion Bayern Munich, which won its fourth title of the year on Wednesday with a Super Cup win over Sevilla, travels to Hoffenheim on Sunday.
