One day after Nicholas is Father’s Day at the Bundesliga hit Hoffenheim against Augsburg!
TSG beat FCA 3-1 – and both clubs bring full dad power to the pitch.
17.Minute: Young dad Florian Grillitsch (25) heads Hoffenheim 1-0 up.
Many remember: At the end of October, the Austrian was replaced at halftime in the Europa League because he became a father.
31st Minute: A new dad also makes the Augsburg compensation! Ex-Schalke Daniel Caligiuri (32) with the 1-1. At the beginning of last week his son Samuel was born.
Caligiuri had already announced after the birth: “I’m sure that this will give me another big boost for the last games of the year.”
The Papa power worked – as with Grillitsch: In the first game after the birth of his little daughter he had already scored directly (in the 4-1 win in Gent) – and today against Augsburg twice: He does it right after the break also the 2: 1 (46th).
Ihlas Bebou makes it 3-1 (50th).
With the win, Hoffenheim ends its drought series: After seven games without a win, the team around coach Sebastian Hoeneß (38) can win again. Augsburg are now four games without a win despite a great start.
