FC Augsburg is welcoming Borussia Dortmund to WWK ARENA in round 24 of the German Bundesliga. Augsburg has gotten a bit sloppy as of late, but they are a very good home team this season. Borussia is trying to stay close to Bayern, and now that they are out of the Europa League, they can focus solely on Bundesliga.

Augsburg is not in the best form as of late, they have won only 1 of their last 9 games while losing their last 2 games in a row. In these 2 games, Augsburg has lost to Borussia M’gladbach and Freiburg, but they have scored some goals at least. Scoring goals was the one thing Augsburg has done consistently, and I think they might do it here as well. With 22 points, Augsburg is now in 16th place, but they are only 1 point away from safety. Gregoritsch is the leading goalscorer for Augsburg with 6 goals, while Iago added 3 assists. There are some injuries and suspensions in Augsburg right now, and that will certainly have an impact on their game. There is still a lot of time left this season for Augsburg to secure their spot in Bundesliga for next season, but they will need to improve their season.

As I’ve mentioned, Borussia has gotten knocked out of the Champions League, the Europa League, and the Conference League all in the same season. Even though they haven’t lost to Rangers on the road, they got destroyed at home, and it cost them. In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia Dortmund has destroyed Borussia M’gladbach 6-0 at home, and they will certainly want to repeat that here as well. There are still a lot of injuries in Borussia Dortmund right now, but luckily for them, they have enough depth to compete in this game. Haaland is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 16 goals and 6 assists, while Reus added 9 goals and 6 assists. Now that they are out of all the European competitions, they can solely focus on Bundesliga, and they need to start here. Borussia is now 9 points behind Bayern, but they could reduce that to 6 points with a win here.

As I’ve mentioned, Augsburg has been scoring pretty consistently, but they are not in good form. Borussia has been doing well in Bundesliga, and they need to keep winning if they want to stay close to Bayern. I think Borussia is a much better team here even with all the injuries, and I think they will get the win.
