Augsburg are hosting Borussia Dortmund at the WWK Arena in a match from the 18th round of the Bundesliga

Augsburg are hosting Borussia Dortmund at the WWK Arena in a match from the 18th round of the Bundesliga.

Augsburg are probably okay with their results so far, because they are comfortably sitting in the middle of the standings. The club is currently 10th in the table with 23 points and a record of 6 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses. They managed to record a nice run of three consecutive wins in the league, but their run ended with a 1-3 loss against RB Leipzig in the previous round.

Augsburg knew that their visit to the Red Bull Arena is going to be difficult and sure it was. They actually opened the score with a goal from Florian Niederlechner after just 8 minutes of playing, but in the second half the current leader in the standings managed to turn the game around and win.

Augsburg’s manager Martin Schmidt has some problems with missing players at the moment. Raphael Framberger, Marek Suchy and Alfredh Finnbogason are all not avaliable.

Borussia Dortmund are currently 4th in the league with 30 points and trailing on 7 points behind the leader RB Leipzig. If they want to celebrate winning the title this season, Dortmund must stabilize their performance and lower the amount of mistakes the do.

Lucien Favre’s team is without a win in its last two matches in the Bundesliga. In the previous round Dortmund paid a visit to Hoffenheim and opened the score with a goal from Mario Gotze, but in the last 11 minutes Hoffe scored twice and secured the three points. It was dissapointing for Borussia Dortmund to lose the game like this, but it happens, right?

Now against Augsburg Borussia Dortmund must aim just for the win and nothing else. We are beginning to reach a crucial time of the season in the Bundesliga and there’s no room for mistakes anymore.
