Leverkusen keep Champions League hopes alive with Augsburg win

Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz can continue to dream of Champions League football next season after his side cruised to a 4-1 win over Bundesliga strugglers Augsburg on Friday.

Bosz spoke of his desire to finish in the top four ahead of the game, and the win puts Leverkusen within two points of that target, having played a game more than the teams around them.

Bosz's side have the chance to move a step closer to Champions League qualification when they face fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt next weekend.

"Just three more games to go, and then we will know where we stand. Let's focus on Frankfurt first, and then we'll see," Bosz told Eurosport.

Leverkusen had two goals disallowed by VAR, but eased past Augsburg nonetheless, notching up their third straight win to go sixth overnight.

Kevin Danso headed Augsburg in front on 12 minutes. Leverkusen quickly hit back, Kevin Volland rifling an equaliser into the top corner.

Lucas Alario had a goal disallowed by VAR, but Kai Havertz gave the visitors the lead just after half-time with an artful finish.

The visitors then had another goal chalked off after half-time, before Jonathan Tah fired in a loose ball at a free-kick to make it 3-1.

Julian Brandt added a fourth a few minutes from time to seal the win.
