South Korea’s Son Heung-Min hit a superb late goal to help Sami Hyypia’s Bayer Leverkusen claim their first win in ten games in Wednesday’s 3-1 Bundesliga victory at Augsburg.

Victory at Augsburg broke a streak of eight defeats in their last nine games in all competitions and eased the pressure on Hyypia, 40, who is in his first season as head coach.

Leverkusen took an early lead through former Germany striker Stefan Kiessling before the hosts equalised when prolific midfielder Tobias Werner scored his fourth in consecutive matches.

But Son restored their lead when he fired home from a near-impossible angle after Kiessling’s final pass before ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Emre Can netted their third.AFP
