Augsburg and Wolfsburg parted their way, after 90 minutes without goals for either side. The match, which was mediocre at best, was one that is best forgotten.

For Wolfsburg, which has the Euro League as a goal for this season, the match was a total disappointment. Even, Wolfsburg coach, Felix Magath, had the opinion earlier this week that he could not imagine a lack of reaction in his team. For Augsburg a win at home was a requirement after two losses in the new season. One thing is clear, the 28,500 spectators did not get their money's worth, although there was great atmosphere in the stadium.

Mohamed Amsif, who subbed for regular keeper Simon Jentzsch, had to make his first safe in the 17th minute, but was seldom challenged for the remainder of the first half.

After engaging for the first 20 minutes, Augsburg sat back and let Wolfsburg direct the play. Wolfsburg was unable to capitalize. Their attacks were inprecise and the Augsburg defence did the rest.

The first half ended with a draw and there was hope that something would happen in the second half.

Nothing much changed in the second half. Wolfsburg dominate but was unable to create danger in the Augsburg penalty area. One of the biggest opportunities came in the 72nd minute when Thomas Kahlenburg was free in front of the target and headed the ball, Mohamed Amsif showed great reflex reaction and made the safe.

Augsburg showed a litte spark during the last 10 to 12 minutes and had a great opportunity in the 79th minute, when a pass frm Oehrl came to Kevin Vogt, who didn't capitalize.

All in all it was a mediocre match, with little to write home about.
