Berlin, Oct 6 (IANS): Augsburg ensured their first win of the season when they overpowered Werder Bremen 3-1 to open the seventh round of Bundesliga at SGL Arena here.

Subsequently Bremen picked up the pace to level the score at the 19th minute through Kevin de Bruyne whose long ball from 48 metres crossed the goal line untouched.

The home side remained offensive and responded thirteen minutes later when Stephan Hain utilised an assist inside the box to slot home into top left to restore the lead.
