Well that was fun. From going down a goal to winning 3-1 this game was a strange one. The goal scorers were Finnbogason (16') from Augsburg and Mkhitaryan (45'), Castro (69') and Ramos (75') for us.
The first half was a sad affair from BVB as we looked clueless when in possession. We had 80% possession for the half and yet most of it was just passing the ball back to Hummels and Weigl when someone didn't know what to do. The Augsburg goal came from Finnbogason catching us a break and putting one past Burki with ease. From then on it did not look like we were in control of the game even though we had the ball the rest of the half. Things changed however, when Mkhitaryan scored a great goal right before the end of the half.
The next half started with Castro coming on for Reus. That change would prove crucial as Castro added more creativity in our attack for the rest of the half. In the 69th minute a long cross came down to Adrian Ramos who put it on a platter to Castro for the winning goal. It was great poise from Ramos to deliver the ball and a perfect finish from Castro. Ramos would impress again as he scored the next goal just six minutes later to secure the victory.
Ramos had a great game today, especially after replacing Aubameyang who missed the fixture to mourn the passing of his grandfather. It's games like these that is going to keep Ramos' value high for the offseason, if we choose to sell him. But it's also games like this that make me want to keep him around. Moritz Leitner and Felix Passlack also came in as subs this game, to give the younger guys some minutes. Its nice to see TT giving minutes to Passlack and Pulisic this week just to let them know that he hasn't forgot about them down in the U19s.
All in all great match for BVB. We were able to show that we can correct ourselves when we are playing bad and comeback from being a goal down. Heja BVB!
