Augsburg has hired a new coach back in March of this year, and they decided to stick with that coach in this new season as well. Augsburg has signed a few good players this season, but they lost a couple of defenders in the offseason, and the defense is what they value the most in Augsburg. After their first win of the season, the schedule is getting a lot harder for Augsburg, and they might miss those defenders they lost.
Borussia Dortmund has scored 10 goals in their last 3 games while conceding only 1 goal, and they were absolutely brilliant in their first game of the season.

Borussia Dortmund was dominant in the first half, but once they scored the first goal, Borussia Dortmund fell back, and they focused mostly on counterattacks.

Sancho and Bellingham each have 1 assist. Morey, Raschl, Schmelzer, Schultz, and Zagadou are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Borussia Dortmund is the biggest threat to Bayern, but they ended up last season in second place with 69 points, 13 points behind Bayern. Borussia Dortmund looked good in their first game, and they are playing well on both ends, but we will see if Borussia Dortmund can stay consistent, which is their biggest problem.
Augsburg has played 7 home games in a row without a win, while Dortmund is on a 7-game winning streak on the road. The trends are heavily on Borussia Dortmund’s side, and they are the better team here. Borussia Dortmund will be the dominant team in this game, and there is no way Augsburg can stop Haaland, Sancho, Reus, or any other offensive star from Borussia Dortmund.
