Augsburg defender Daniel Opare delighted with win over Hamburg in Bundesliga return

Ghana defender Daniel Opare has expressed delight in Augsburg 1-0 win over Hamburg S.V in the start of the second roud of the German Bundesliga.

The Ghanaian right back, who is a subject of massive transfer speculations in Europe in the winter transfer window, saw 90 minutes of action and was sold in defence for Augsburg.

Neither team was able to dominate the match in the first half-hour of play but towards the end of the first-half, Augsburg upped their charge and managed to generate a number of good chances.

Riding on this wave, Brazilian attacker Caiuby put a dangerous cross into Hamburg's box that Koo headed in to open the score.

The action cooled off somewhat in the second half and the match turned into a midfield scrap. While Augsburg retained control, they were not able to find a clear chance to extend their lead. Hamburg did not give up, though, and coach Markus Gisdol made attacking substitutions in search of an equaliser that ultimately did not materialise.

The result puts Augsburg in seventh place and maintains their dream of a return to European football next season.

Opare delighted by his performance and the victory posted on Instagram,"
