Augsburg vs. Borussia Dortmund Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

In a Bundesliga clash, Augsburg hosts Borussia Dortmund at the WWK ARENA on Saturday afternoon. Both teams, known for their comebacks this season, aim to return to winning ways.

Match Preview

Augsburg’s impressive six-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga ended with a 2-0 away defeat to Werder Bremen.

Despite sitting ninth, they’ve struggled defensively, conceding in every game this season. At home, they’ve collected most of their points but haven’t kept a clean sheet in 15 games across competitions.

Conceding 61 goals to Dortmund, Augsburg faces a tough defensive challenge.

Dortmund, despite topping their Champions League group, aim to rectify their Bundesliga form after a 3-2 loss to Leipzig. Their league run hasn’t been ideal, winning only one of their last six games.

Augsburg’s defensive worries and Dortmund’s recent league struggles set the stage for an intriguing encounter.

Team News

Augsburg’s Framberger and Oxford remain sidelined, while Beljo and Iago are doubtful. Gumny might replace Mbabu at right-back, and Demirovic hopes to bolster the attack alongside Tietz.

Dortmund misses Moukoko, Duranville, Nmecha, and Ryerson due to injuries. Hummels serves a suspension. Schlotterbeck could partner Sule in defense, and Can might return to the midfield. Meunier could start at right-back, providing attacking support.
