The visitors surrendered without a fight as Daniel Caligiuri set up the first goal and scored the second in his 300th league game.

In spite of Borussia Dortmund having close to 80 percent possession for much of the first half, it was Augsburg who scored.

This was when Felix Uduokhai connected with a Caligiuri free-kick in the 40th minute with their first chance of the match.

Borussia Dortmund lacked the magic from their young stars which helped them cruise past Borussia Moenchengladbach in their Bundesliga opener last week.

Erling Haaland, Giovanni Reyna and Jude Bellingham were without a single chance for more than 70 minutes and Jadon Sancho struggled to find space.

Augsburg remained disciplined after the break and scored again with the 32-year-old Caligiuri charging through.

He held off defender Thomas Meunier and fired in to leave the visitors desperately scrambling to score for the remainder of the game.

Champions Bayern Munich, who won their fourth title of the year on Wednesday with a Super Cup win over Sevilla, travel to Hoffenheim on Sunday.
