Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Prediction 17 August 2019

Tournament: German Bundesliga
Location: Signal Iduna Park
Match date: 17.08.2019 at 14:30

On August 17 2019 at 14:30 at the Signal-Iduna-Park in the upcoming regular match of the first game week of the German Bundesliga the local Borussia Dortmund will play against their guests Augsburg. This is going to be the match between one of the teams fighting for the championship and the outsiders of the league and that is why there won’t be a lot of intrigue this time.

Borussia were on the top of the standings during two thirds of the league and yet they lost the champions’ title to Bayern anyway. Their main problem is actually their short bench and yet that problem was solved at least partly during the preseason campaign. In August they played two matches in which they won twice against Bayern in the Super Cup and against Jurdigen in the national Cup with the same 2:0 score.

Augsburg couldn’t say that the previous season was a successful one for them as they took the 15th position in the standings with the real threat of relegation which wasn’t what the solid middle-peasants of the Bundesliga should achieve. This summer they mostly worked on the defense improvement and yet they still don’t’ look strong enough as they lost their first match in the DFB Pokal.

It’s always extremely strong at the domestic stadium and it’s almost impossible to outplay them there. In such a situation Augsburg who are in a crisis now aren’t very likely to compete against the vice-champions of the league.
