Dortmund held by Augsburg in Bundesliga

Dortmund, Feb 27: Borussia Dortmund settled for a 1-1 draw here against FC Augsburg, wasting a chance to distance themselves from the four other clubs vying to be best of the rest in the Bundesliga football championship as Bayern Munich run away with the title.

Dortmund on Monday began the day 20 points behind Bayern and level with third-placed Schalke, but ahead in the standings based on goal difference, reports Efe.

The hosts took the lead in the 16th minute with a goal by forward Marco Reus on the counter, only to see Kevin Danso equalise for Augsburg in the 73rd minute, connecting with a header following a corner kick.

Though Dortmund dominated play with 65 per cent possession, the Augsburg defence limited them to two other genuine opportunities in the course of the 90 minutes

The draw ended Dortmund’s three-match winning streak and took the side to 41 points, separated from sixth-placed RB Leipzig — their next opponents — by only three points.

Augsburg, with 32 points from 24 matches, moved up to eighth.
