Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund have been in great shape through their pre-season and capitalized on it as they beat Bayern Munich (2-0) in their Super Cup clash, building on it with a DFB Pokal win over Uerdingen (0-2) and extending an eight-match winning streak across competitions since mid-July.
BVB have most recently beaten 3. Liga rivals Preussen Munster (0-4) with a rotated lineup and goals from Leonardo Balerdi, Dan-Axel Zagadou, and Mario Gotze (x2). They’ve been rock-solid at the back and managed to keep hold of such consistency as they kept four clean sheets in last five games, which will have Lucien Favre’s men confident early in the new campaign.
Augsburg have, on the other hand, seen a troubled display and a 2-1 DFB Pokal loss to Verl, where they fell behind early and a late goal from Andre Hahn proved nothing but a consolation. Martin Schmidt has thus seen criticism and the pressure hasn’t been letting up since he took over back in April, which will feel worrying for the travelling fans.
Fuggerstadter have been conceding goals on the regular and their pre-season clashes against Villarreal (2-6) and Bologna (2-3) proved enough for the defensive line to cope. With that in mind, it’s hard to see them bounce back on the day already and cause an upset at Signal Iduna Park.
We will thus back Borussia Dortmund to secure the points and we’ll go for them to turn another exciting game their way, as we back a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with Coral – which feels like buying money for old rope.
We do feel the visitors will get on the scoresheet, though, and we’ll back a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill. We have seen Augsburg scoring on the regular despite struggles for consistency, which looks like further evidence for such a claim.
