Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Der BVB are going through a struggling stretch at the moment, and have dropped quite some points in the last few match-days.
They are currently placed seventh in the table, and if something is not done soon, they might find it hard to even qualify for the Champions League.
With major teams circling around Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland, it’s imperative that the team qualifies for Europe’s premier competition.
They are desperate for a win this weekend.
It helps that they are at home, and are pitted against a struggling Fuggerstadter. In fact, Heiko Herrlich’s men have won just six times all through this campaign, and most of their wins had come against teams that were promoted to the top flight recently.
Moreover, Fuggerstadter also have a concerning record on the road in the past several months, and most importantly, they have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the past years.
As such, expect the desperate Borussia Dortmund to deliver a winning performance this weekend at the Signal Iduna Park.
Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Edin Terzic’s men had recorded 12 of the preceding 15 overall wins.
- They had scored five or more goals in two of the former three clashes.
- They are unbeaten at this venue since 2015.
- The hosts have scored four or more goals in five of the past nine meetings at this stadium.
- Barring a single loss, the hosts have a 100% unbeaten record at this ground in the past decade.
Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Prediction
Terzic’s men had lost their last match 4-2, on the road, against Monchengladbach. In the meantime, Fuggerstadter registered a rare win the past game week, at home, against Union Berlin, with a 2-1 scorecard.
Going on though, Herrlich’s men were winless in 14 of their past 19 overall games, and in seven of their past nine road trips.
Importantly, they also have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years, and especially at this venue. Moreover, they also have conceded heavily in all of these meetings.
On the other hand, their counterparts are one of the best teams in the German top flight, and are determined to post an urgent three points on the board at any cost. On top of that, they also have some of the most offensively gifted players in the world at the moment.
As such, expect Dortmund to post an impressive win this weekend, and to score in plenty in the process too.
