Augsburg are playing at home versus Borussia Dortmund in a match of round 24 of the Bundesliga. The home team are in poor form and for the first time in their history earned just three points in the first six games of the second half of the season. Last weekend Augsburg conceded five goals as guests of Freiburg, keeping their record as the fourth worst defence in the league.
Borussia Dortmund also had a tough weekend, but eventually took the three points after a 3-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen. In a big part of the game, The Company XI played better, but The Black and Yellows with good teamwork took the win. The absence of Marco Reus interfere the way BVB are playing, but still, it should be noted that this season Borussia don’t rely much on individualities and are playing more like a team. Until now, 18 players have scored a goal for Dortmund, which is an absolute record for the team.
It’s visible that Augsburg are a weaker side this season compared to the leading teams in the Bundesliga, but it’s still early to say that they are favourites for relegation. In the recent season, Augsburg never had less than 38 points at the end of the season and established themselves as one of the permanent participants in Germany’s elite league. Although the results don’t show it, the home team are capable of to create headaches of their opponents, and in the current form of Dortmund, they should not be overrated. The Black and Yellows have just one win in the previous five games as guests in all competitions while scoring at most one goal in each of these fixtures.
Three of the last five games between Augsburg and BVB ended as a 1-1 draw, while in the other two, Borussia Dortmund won with just one goal difference. We expect the tendency to be kept on Friday. The home team will have to play defensively because they need points. I will back Augsburg +1.0 Asian Handicap, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
