Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg
Date: Tuesday, 20th December, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund haven’t lived up to expectations this season and will be coming into the matchday 16 sitting at fifth position in the league table. There is already a 10 point gap with Bayern Munich, but the surprise packages like RB Leipzig and TSG Hoffenheim are also in the race for a UEFA qualification spot.
The season ahead will be very competitive and Dortmund must sort themselves out after the Christmas break. They were held to draws in their last two league games and Thomas Tuchel will be eyeing nothing less than a win against Augsburg at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night.
Augsburg are also having a very difficult season, but they will be buoyed by a welcome 1-0 home win over Borussia Monchengladbach on matchday 15. They were without a win in the last four with 3 draws and a defeat. Also Augsburg have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 games but have conceded only 2 goals in their last 5 games. A win in this game will get them into the top half of the table depending on other results.

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg: Prediction
Dortmund will be glad to get back to Signal Iduna Park after being on the road for two consecutive weeks. They were at Koln and Hoffenheim and were held to draws in both. With a huge 10 point gap opened up against Bayern Munich, they will be fired up to take full points from this fixture against Augsburg.
And the things could work well in the favour of the home side, as Augsburg have managed only 1 win from their last 6 away games. Moreover, they did suffer some heavy defeats under similar kind of form against Dortmund in previous seasons.
