Market: Borussia Dortmund to score over 2.5 goals
Odds: 5/4 @ 888sport
Looking to make it two in two and keep up the pace this weekend, Borussia Dortmund will make the trip to the WWK Arena on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Augsburg might have managed to open the New Year with a 3-1 win away at early-season relegation contenders Union Berlin last weekend, there is no doubt that Heiko Herrlich’s side are going to be in for a tough afternoon on Saturday. Managing to drag themselves over the finish line earlier in the summer, the former Bayer Leverkusen boss saw his men end the 2019/2020 campaign with a 2-1 defeat against RB Leipzig and they remarkably managed to land just a pair of Bundesliga victories over any of their final 14 appearances either side of the enforced break. With that run highlighted by a 3-1 drumming at home against Hoffenheim back in July, Augsburg also hold what is an appalling record at the WWK Arena. Including back-to-back defeats on home soil, Saturday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures in Bavaria.
As for the visitors, marking their return to Bundesliga duties with what turned out to be a very impressive 3-0 romp against Champions League hopefuls Borussia Mönchengladbach, the mood in rural Germany should be at a real high. Also continuing on with their DFP Pokal adventure thanks to a 5-0 win away at lower-league MSV Duisburg, Lucien Farve’s youngsters also impressed many over the summer with their performances on the road. Signing off the 2019/2020 campaign with an eye-catching 2-0 win away at RB Leipzig, BVB won each of their final six matchups away from Signal-Iduna-Park and they will also be boosted by what is a rampant record against Saturday’s hosts. Putting on a real clinic and as they landed a dramatic 5-3 win when they traveled to Augsburg back in January, we’re backing what could be another lively contest this weekend.
Bet: Borrusia Dortmund 5/4 to score over 2.5 goals against Augsburg in Saturday’s Bundesliga matchup @ 888sport
