Borussia Dortmund vs FC Augsburg Preview

Borussia Dortmund vs FC Augsburg

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Signal-Iduna-Park

Date: 26th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Dortmund earned a late draw against Atalanta on Thursday to see them through to the next round of the Europa league and also keep their unbeaten run intact.

Their hero that night was returning captain Marcel Schmelzer – alongside Marco Reus he will be hoping to keep his place in the starting lineup in this game again.

The duo have just returned from injury but an extra day’s rest ahead of this match should see them back in contention.

They are unbeaten in their last 8 competitive matches however they have netted 2 or more goals in only 2 of their last 11 matches which should be a concern.

Augsburg’s European dream was left in the balance when they lost their last home game against Stuttgart.

There are now six points between them and sixth position in the league table.

They also head into this game without the suspended Daniel Baier meaning Jan Moravek should make only his third start of the season.

Alfred Finnbogason who is the closest challenger to Robert Lewandoski in the race for top scorer is still injured, so 9-goals attacker, Michael Gregoritsch will most likely lead their attack here again.

Augsburg have conceded more than one goal in only 2 of their last 11 away matches, making it appear they could frustrate the host here.
