Sitting rock bottom of the Bundesliga are Borussia Dortmund who face fifth placed Augsburg tomorrow at Signul Iduna Park in Dortmund. Jurgen Klopp's side know that they must start putting performances together or they are going down. Jurgen Klopp has the backing of the club for the moment but with Borussia Dortmund inexplicably poor in the league this season it is a miracle that they have managed to make it to the knockout stages of the Champions League. With Marco Reus out injured the pressure for goals is on Aubeymeyang and immobile and neither have really lived up to expectations this year hence the struggles of Borussia Dortmund, oh how they miss the goals of Robert Lewandowski.
Augsburg are one of the beneficiaries of the downturn of Borussia Dortmund. Realistically given a chance of European football next season it has been a terrific year for Augsburg. With Altintop and Bobadilla the main partnership up front Augsburg have pushed on this season and look like a team capable of getting into the European spaces right now. Facing off against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday will be a massive game for Augsburg and with only one of the teams ahead of them winning last night this is a chance for them to close the gap.
Tough game for both teams here but at the moment I just cannot take Borussia Dortmund at 4/9 even at home. I am taking Augsburg +1.5 on the handicap. I think if Dortmund do wiht this it will be by the minimum.
