Bayer Leverkusen snapped a three-game winless streak with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Augsburg to remain in the running for second place in the Bundesliga.
Stefan Kiessling opened the scoring for Leverkusen in the 26th minute and Lars Bender doubled their advantage 15 minutes from time.
Sascha Molders made things interesting by pulling a goal back for the visitors in the 89th minute, but they could not force an equaliser.
