Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg

, KO: 14:30 May 4, 2024, Signal Iduna Park
Augsburg

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to begin a final push for a top four finish as they host August in a Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. Dortmund often do good work and home and should have the upper hand over Augsburg, who have found things difficult lately.

Things have been a bit erratic for Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks with just one win from their last four Bundesliga matches while also losing 4-1 to RB Leipzig last time out. However, they will head into Saturday’s clash with some confidence having claimed a 1-0 victory over French side PSG in their Champions League semi-final first leg.

The Signal Iduna Park has been a solid hunting ground for Borussia Dortmund, who are unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches, picking up six wins in that run.

Augsburg have been particularly poor as they have lost three of their last four matches, suffering a 3-0 home defeat to Werder Bremen in their previous Bundesliga fixture.

Their away form has also left a lot to be desired, with just three wins from their last 11 Bundesliga fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it: Dortmund with the upper hand

Borussia Dortmund are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 4/5 by BetVictor. A victory for Augsburg is valued at 3/1 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by bet365.

Head to head: Recent meetings lean towards Borussia Dortmund

Both teams played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in December. However, prior to that clash, Dortmund had been unbeaten in the last five meetings, claiming four wins in that run.

Players to watch: Niclas Fullkrug is the man on fire

Niclas Fullkrug is the leading scorer for Borussia Dortmund with 12 Bundesliga goals this season and will be the one to watch on Saturday. The striker has also found the net in three of the last four matches across all competitions and is priced at 7/5 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Ermedin Demirovic has 15 Bundesliga goals this season and could be worth keeping an eye on for Augsburg. The Bosnian striker was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 21/10 by Unibet to find the net once again.

Probable lineups

Borussia Dortmund have no new injury problems, although they may rotate their squad, with a Champions League semi-final second leg in Paris on the horizon. Augsburg have more players out with the likes of Elvis Rexhbecaj, Iago and Hans Jensen all expected to miss Saturday’s clash.

Borussia Dortmund: Kobel, Hummels, Wolf, Schlotterbeck, Maatsen, Can, Sabitzer, Reus, Sancho, Nmecha, Fullkrug.
Augsburg: Dahmen, Gouweleeuw, Mbabu, Pedersen, Udokhai, Jakic, Meier, Vargas, Engels, Tietz, Demirovic

Anything else catch the eye: Goals could be on the cards here
