Second-half surge lifts Eintracht over Braunschweig

Second-half goals from Alexander Meier and Stefan Aigner helped Eintracht to a 2-0 home win over Braunschweig on Sunday, giving the club its first points of the season.

Both sides entered Sunday's contest having lost the first two games of the new campaign, but Eintracht broke a scoreless deadlock in the 52nd minute when Meier turned home a cross from Vaclav Kadlec at the near post.

Aigner missed two chances to double Eintracht's lead in quick succession as he sent a pair of headers just off target.

However, he atoned for his wastefulness in the 62nd by finding the bottom corner of the net from 20 yards to help lift his team off the bottom of the Bundesliga table.

Augsburg 2, Stuttgart 1

Augsburg, Germany - Augsburg brought an end to a poor start in the league this season with a 2-1 home win on Sunday over Stuttgart, which continued its own terrible beginning to the new campaign.

Augsburg was outscored 5-0 in two losses to start the season, but the home side got off to a strong start on Sunday with a sixth-minute goal from Halil Altintop.

Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker doubled the advantage in the 36th for Augsburg, while Stuttgart pulled a goal back a few minutes before halftime with a Vedad Ibisevic penalty kick.

However, the visitors bid for a point took a hit in the 70th when Ibrahima Traore was sent off, allowing Augsburg to see out the rest of the match.

Stuttgart joins Braunschweig as the only teams in the Bundesliga without a point from the first three games.
