Hoffenheim and Augsburg both picked up a point Saturday in a scoreless draw.
Playing with heavy hearts while teammate Boris Vukcevic lay in a coma after a car accident on Friday afternoon, Hoffenheim took the pitch on Saturday afternoon looking to complete a one week haul of 9 points in three Bundesliga matches.
Takashi Usami almost put Hoffenheim up early in the first half, but his right footed shot went just wide of the post. The Japanese midfielder has been extremely lively for Markus Babbel's side getting forward more often and not afraid to put a shot on target.
Augsburg sat back absorbing most of Hoffenheim's pressure, but they were never really under any threat of conceding. Mohamed Amsif was active but never truly busy.
Sejad Salihovic was shown a straight red in the 88th minute for a bad tackle on Tobias Werner. The Hoffenheim man went in with his studs showing right into the ankle of Werner.
Hoffenheim almost grabbed all three points late, but Joselu and Fabian Johnson were unable to beat Amsif.
