Leverkusen sink Augsburg to make it six wins out of seven

Goals from Moussa Diaby and Nadiem Amiri gave Bayer Leverkusen a 2-0 victory over Augsburg on Sunday and kept them in contention for a Champions League spot following their sixth win in the last seven league games.

France youth international Diaby, who joined this season from Paris St Germain, scored his fourth goal of the campaign after Kai Havertz threaded a superb pass through the Augsburg defence for the 20-year-old.

Amiri made it 2-0 with a solo run after being given far too much space and Havertz hit the post with the hosts in complete control.

Following their fifth straight win in all competitions, Leverkusen are fifth on 43 points, level with Borussia Monchengladbach who are fourth. The top four teams qualify for the Champions League.

Bayern Munich lead the standings on 49 points, followed by RB Leipzig on 48.
