Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
Heiko Herrlich’s men were the last safe team in the competition in 2019-20 – as they finished 15th in a table of 18 squads.
Meanwhile, Der BVB have been the best team in the country just below Bayern Munich for the past decade. In fact, they have been the only team to raise even a respectable challenge against the domination of the Bavarians.
Lucien Favre’s men are determined to not let their arch-rivals once again run away with the title. And they made it clear with not letting any of their main players go in the transfer window. Usually, Der BVB have a reputation of being a selling club.
With the likes of Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland etc, even fans are starting to hope of a regime change in Germany.
Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, Favre’s men recorded a 3-5 win on the road.
- To quote a stat, they have scored a total of ten goals from the past two fixtures.
- They have also recorded 12 of the preceding 14 overall wins.
- The guests have scored two or more goals in seven of their last nine encounters at this stadium.
- In the past ten years, the home team have registered a total of just one win at this venue.
Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Herrlich’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Union Berlin. In the meantime, Der BVB registered a 3-0 win at home against Monchengladbach.
Note that Gladbach are one of the best teams in the league, and had finished fourth in the table in 2019-20. Suffice it to say, the Black and Yellows have made a statement that they intend to give Bayern a run for their money.
It helps their cause that they are taking on a team that had just finished above the relegation cut-off in their last campaign. On top of that, Favre’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival.
To be clear – they had scored ten goals from the past two h2h clashes alone, and have lost just once at this stadium in the last ten years.
Taking into account these observations, it’s clear that Borussia Dortmund are clear favorites to post the three points this weekend. And considering their offensive firepower, a minimum of two goals are expected as well.
