Dortmund had 16 shots on goal in the first half compared to Augsburg’s one, and Niklas Sule also struck the post, but the hosts were still down to 10 men after Felix Uduokhai was sent off in the 38th minute, and they were unable to score.

After the restart, Emre Can also hit the woodwork, but Haller’s shot off the post helped them break the tie.

Irvin Cardona’s 10-meter attempt was stopped by Gregor Kobel of Dortmund after Augsburg quickly answered with a chance of their own.

Haller calmed Dortmund’s jitters with a tap-in before Brandt finished off their victory. Haller had missed much of the season after being diagnosed with testicular cancer last year.

On the season’s final matchday, Dortmund host Mainz, while Bayern—who have won the last 10 league titles—travel to Cologne.
