Reason For Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Predictions

Dortmund came agonisingly close to ending Bayern Munich’s title run last season but made a statement ahead of the 19/20 Bundesliga campaign when they beat them 2-0 in the curtain-raising Super Cup game earlier this month.

Paco Alcacer, Dortmund’s top scorer last season, followed up his goal in that game with another in last weekend’s 2-0 DFB Cup win at Uerdingen, while captain Marco Reus and English wonderkid Jadon Sancho also look sharp. Attackers Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt and defender Mats Hummels are notable newcomers that further strengthen Lucien Favre’s squad in what should be another title-challenging campaign.

Augsburg’s season looks focused on the other end of the table. They finished fourth-bottom in 18/19 and, worryingly ahead of this game, held the fifth-worst travelling record of any side… but they did cause Dortmund some problems. At Signal Iduna Park, they would have caused an upset were it now for Alcacer putting Dortmund 4-3 ahead in the 96th minute. At home, they won 2-1, dealing a huge blow to Dortmund’s title hopes.

Their new campaign hasn’t got off to the best of starts, though, as Martin Schmidt’s side suffered a shock exit from the DFB Pokal against fourth-tier Verl on Saturday. After that performance, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see new goalkeeper Tomas Koubek, who joined from French club Rennes over the summer, in for a busy afternoon…

Signal Iduna Park is always a tough place for visiting teams to get a result – Dortmund had the best home form in the Bundesliga last season, after all (W14 D2 L1) – so you’d have to fancy the hosts to kick their season off with a win. Der BVB averaged over 3 goals per game at home last season and, remarkably, scored at least two in every single one too. As the squad hasn’t seen many changes, we expect that to continue.

For Augsburg, though, goals look a bit harder to come by. Summer signed forward Florian Niederlechner doesn’t inspire much confidence after bagging just 4 goals in 24 appearances last season, while last season’s top scorer Alfred Finnbogason has struggled for consistency since a number of injury problems. They failed to score in 41% of their Bundesliga way days last term too.

Going off the above, the best bet for this game looks to be in backing Dortmund alongside ‘over 2.5 goals’, something that landed in 88% of their home games and 65% of Augsburg’s away games in 18/19. And with the visitors averaging over two goals conceded per away game conceded last term too, we can certainly see Dortmund getting at least three here. Our prediction: 3-0 Dortmund.
