Borussia Dortmund v Augsburg preview - Bundesliga

Borussia Dortmund will hope to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they face off against Augsburg at home on Saturday.

Marco Rose’s side lost their last Bundesliga game 1-0, but did well to pick up a gritty win against Sporting Lisbon in their second Champions League game of the season.

The clash against Augsburg should be straightforward, even though striker Erling Haaland is still a doubt for the clash.

The Bavarians were handsomely beaten 3-0 by Freiburg in their last game as they struggled to deal with the hosts’ energy and tenacity on a historic night. It was Freiburg’s final game at the Dreisamstadion, and they made good use of their raucous home support.

Augsburg are just a point above the relegation playoff spot, and will need to pick up their form or risk getting sucked into a relegation battle.

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Head-to-head

Borussia Dortmund have a superior head-to-head record against Augsburg, having won 13 of the 20 games between the two teams.

Augsburg have won this fixture just three times, and five games have ended as draws.

Dortmund won the last meeting between the two sides and will hope for a repeat at the Westfalenstadion this Saturday.
