Augsburg – Borussia D, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR AUGSBURG - DORTMUND
Augsburg is constantly sinking. The team lost again and this time it was a very heavy defeat from Freiburg 5-1 in the last round. The new coach, who was appointed at the end of December, Baum, failed to motivate the players enough or at least did not manage to change anything, and in fact Augsburg had just one victory under his leadership – that against Mainz 05 with 3-0. After it, however, three consecutive losses followed and the team is just above the danger zone.
The victory of Dortmund vs. Bayer Leverkusen was too psychologically important. Of course, this kept the distance from Bayern 3 points, but the Bavarians almost do not lose points, so for Dortmund every match is decisive. Apparently they also wrote off the Champions League, because of the fight for the title. True tests for the yellow and black are precisely in the matches and against such teams, because they have already lost points against Fortuna and Nurnberg during the season.
The past match between Dortmund and Augsburg at Signal Iduna Park earlier ended 4-3 in favor of Dortmund. Overall, goals are a logical outcome, because both teams rely heavily on the offensive game. Augsburg has not scored a goal at home in just one game, but Dortmund’s mistakes have been too much in the last few weeks, and we think their weaker period is over. Still, if we’ll look for goals, it is logical that most of them are in the net of the hosts. Prediction – Dortmund – Over 1.5 goals at 1.60.
- Dortmund have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7 away games in Augsburg
- Augsburg has conceded 12 goals in the last 3 games
