FC Augsburg Preview – Any place but home?

Just a second ever Matchday 1 victory in the Bundesliga for FC Augsburg, who needed to be ruthless in front of goal to edge a closely fought encounter in the German capital with Union Berlin. The 3-1 scoreline, having netted on three occasions from chances equating to 1.52 xG (their opponents weren’t far behind with 1.26), hardly a fair reflection on proceedings inside Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Now, the club affectionately known as Fuggerstadter stand on the cusp of a feat never before achieved: back-to-back wins from their first two Bundesliga games. Unfortunately for them, Borussia Dortmund’s supremely talented kids await on Saturday. Moreover, Augsburg have registered just two wins in eighteen prior meetings in the German top division – and only one of those was on home soil (home record vs Dortmund: W1 D3 L5).

An unfavourable head-to-head is possibly the least of their worries, though. Since the appointment of former Leverkusen boss Heiko Herrlich prior to the 2019/20 Bundesliga season recommencing in May, Augsburg would narrowly avoid demotion but are still winless at their WWK Arena since February. A seven-game barren run, of which his tenure is responsible for five (D2 L3).


Erling Haaland First Goalscorer



Borussia Dortmund Preview – Seventh away win on the spin to be hard-earned?

It was in this same fixture last season that Erling Haaland announced himself to German football, appearing from the substitutes bench to score a hat-trick which ultimately turned a 3-1 deficit into an astonishing 5-3 victory for Borussia Dortmund. Since his unforgettable debut, the Norwegian has contributed with 15 goals in 16 Bundesliga appearances to become the undisputed figurehead for this vibrant team.

Haaland was at hand to score twice on Matchday 1 as Die Schwarzgelben, somewhat surprisingly, made light work (DOR 1.6 – 0.68 MON) of a Borussia Monchengladbach side which finished a commendable fourth in 2019/20. A 17-year-old Jude Bellingham made his debut, a promising one at that, while Jadon Sancho shown his unwavering commitment to the cause with an all action display in the 3-0 victory.

Dortmund had managed six consecutive Bundesliga away wins towards the end of 2019/20, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Another ‘Win To Nil’ doesn’t seem imminent though: Opta tell us that BVB are without a clean sheet in thirteen league meetings versus Saturday’s opponents FC Augsburg. Alternatively, the visitors can be backed at 9/5 with BetVictor to pick up three points in spite of conceding.
