Augsburg Prediction

Augsburg continue to hover just above the relegation play-off positions as they are one league position and two points ahead of third from bottom club Stuttgart prior to their Friday night clash with Bundesliga league leaders, Borussia Dortmund.

Augsburg’s predicament certainly hasn’t been helped by losing six of their last seven matches in the German top flight with defeats to Wolfsburg, Dortuna Dusseldorf, Borussia Moenchengladbach, Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich and Freiburg with three of these six losses coming at their WWK Arena.

The hosts did manage a 3-0 win over Mainz 05 amongst all the defeats but this has been far outweighed by the losses incurred, while at home, that win over Mainz has been their only success from their last eight matches on home turf.

The hosts possess a home record that stands at 2-4-5 19/19 and they’ve actually registered just three home wins out of their last 17 matches at the WWK Arena, which includes 10 defeats on home soil during this fairly ordinary period.


Key-Facts – Augsburg v Borussia Dortmund

  • Augsburg have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in the Bundesliga
  • Augsburg have won just 1 of their last 8 matches at home
  • Dortmund have lost just 1 of their last 11 away matches in the Bundesliga


Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Borussia Dortmund opened up a three point lead at the top of the Bundesliga thanks to last weekend’s 3-2 home win over Bayer Leverkusen which extended the visitors’ unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to seven matches overall.

During this period, Dortmund have recorded wins against Borussia Moenchengladbach, RB Leipzig, Hannover 96 and the aforementioned, Bayer Leverkusen, while results away from home have seen Dortmund suffer just one defeat from their last 11 matches on their travels.

Dortmund therefore possess a solid away record which stands at 6-4-1 17/8 which includes five clean sheets, and they hold a good record at the WWK Arena against Augsburg as the visitors are unbeaten in their previous eight visits in all competitions.

The visitors also possess some dangerous attacking and goalscoring personnel in the shape of midfielders Sancho (8 goals) and Gotze (4 goals) as well as forward pair, Reus (13 goals) and Alcacer (12 goals), and they could well cause Augsburg a number of problems in the final third on Friday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Augsburg are experiencing a very tough period at the moment and their job won’t be made any easier when title-chasing Dortmund visit on Friday night. Dortmund look set to continue holding the upper hand over Augsburg here.
