Boro beat one of those never-heard-of-them-do-I-look-like-a-football-hipster? top flight German teams that no one has really heard of in the final warm up game before season 2017-18. The Burgers took the lead in the first minute with a rasping shot following a half cleared corner but Middlesbrough equalised before half time when their summer signing from Coronation Street, Martin Braithwaite fired home from close range. With minutes to go, Augsburg had another corner but the outcome this time was a winning goal for Boro on the break. Another new signing, Ashley Fletcher ran away with the ball before unselfishly teeing up Adam Forshaw to score the winning goal.
