Borussia Dortmund is welcoming FC Augsburg to Signal Iduna Park in round 7 of the German Bundesliga. Borussia ended their winning streak against Borussia M’gladbach last weekend, but they bounced back in the Champions League. Augsburg has been hot and cold so far this season, but overall, they have had a decent start.

Borussia Dortmund is now in 4th place with 12 points, they have scored 17 goals, but their defense is still bad with 12 conceded goals in 6 games. Earlier this week, Borussia Dortmund was hosting Sporting CP in the Champions League, and they were solid with 59% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 4 shots inside the box, and 85% of the correct passes. It’s much harder to come by goals without Haaland, but Borussia has scored once, and it was enough for a 1-0 win. Speaking of Haaland, he has scored 7 goals for Borussia so far this season, but he is still injured. There are a few more injuries in Borussia, while Dahoud is suspended because of the red card. Offensively, Borussia is one of the best teams in Germany, but their defense is killing them.

As I’ve mentioned, Augsburg has had a solid start, but they have been terrible in the attacking end with only 2 scored goals. Augsburg’s defense has been terrible, and they have conceded 11 goals. With 5 points, Augsburg is outside the relegation zone now, but unless they start scoring, they will sink fast. Augsburg has only 1 win this season, and that was against Borussia M’gladbach a couple of weeks ago. In their last game against Freiburg, Augsburg has had a bad game with 39% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 72% of the correct passes. Augsburg has conceded 3 goals in the first half, and the game was over then. The final score was 3-0 in favor of Freiburg. Niederlechner is the only goalscorer for Augsburg with 2 goals. Uduokhai and Finnbogason are both injured. Augsburg is still one of the favorites to get relegated, and they will if they don’t find a way to score more goals.

Dortmund has won every home game so far this season, and even without Haaland, Borussia is the better team here, by a lot. Augsburg has beaten Borussia only 3 times in the past, and I don’t think they will get another one here. I’m taking Borussia at home.
