Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Augsburg had their stellar six-match unbeaten streak brought to a close in their last clash by RB Leipzig who posted a 3-1 scorecard. The hosts broke the deadlock early on in that matchup and finished the first half with their lead intact.

However, their counterparts got off to a strong start post the restart and slotted all three goals in the final twenty minutes of the game.

Nevertheless, with twenty-three points to their name, Augsburg are sitting tenth on the ladder, seven points adrift of their foes for the weekend.

On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund have been deprived of a win in their past two clashes in the Bundesliga. The visitors were in for a shock upset in their most recent matchup on the road, after Hoffenheim came back from behind to pick up a 2-1 win at the last blast of the whistle.

Be that as it may, the guests have stumbled just thrice away from home this season. It is also worth mentioning that all of the wins for Augsburg so far at home have come against sides that are currently dwelling outside the top ten.

Taking into account that Borussia Dortmund have also secured the bragging rights in six of their last eight visits here, count on the visitors not to drop points this weekend.

Furthermore, Augsburg have not gone down without a fight in front of the home crowd. Impressively they have scored two goals or more in each of their past five matchups here on the trot. Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund have not kept a clean sheet in any of their previous four trips to this stadium.

As such, count on both teams to have their scoring boots on this Saturday.
