Augsburg emerge in Bundesliga battle

Fabian Klos of DSC Arminia Bielefeld in action with Daniel Caligiuri of FC Augsburg during the Bundesliga match between DSC Arminia Bielefeld and FC Augsburg at Schüco Arena on March 4, 2022 in Bielefeld, Germany.


Daniel Caligiuri scored early in the second half to earn Augsburg a 1-0 win at Arminia Bielefeld in their Bundesliga relegation fight.

Caligiuri scored with Augsburg's first shot on target in the 50th minute to lift his team three points above Hertha Berlin in the relegation playoff place, and a point above Bielefeld on Friday.

Hertha hosts Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday and can overtake Bielefeld if they claim their first win this year.

There are nine rounds of games remaining after this weekend.

There was only one shot on target in the first half in Bielefeld with each team cancelling the other amid tough tackles and mistakes.

The visitors emerged with more intent after the break and scored after forcing Bielefeld defender Cedric Brunner to lose the ball.

Augsburg midfielder Ruben Vargas sent Brazilian defender Iago through to cross for Caligiuri to rifle in a shot at the far post.

The game was preceded by appeals for peace in Ukraine following the invasion by Russia.

Bielefeld players and coach Frank Kramer wore blue jerseys with "Peace everywhere!" written in yellow under a yellow dove, and both teams lined up behind a banner appealing for donations to help those affected by the war.
