Dortmund vs Augsburg
Dortmund are 5th with 26 points and respectable goal difference 34:18. They are on a streak of three competitive games without a win, with all three games finishing as a draw. It has to be said that all of those games were on the road, and the last time they played at Signal Iduna, they beat Monchengladbach 4:1. On Friday they played 2:2 at Hoffenheim. They were losing on two occasions, and were playing with a man down since 41st minute when Reus got his second yellow card. For this game they will be missing Burki, Pisczek, Sahin and Sokrates who are injured, as well aa suspended Reus.
Augsburg are holding 12th place with 17 points. Last time out they beat Monchengladbach at home 1:0. Before that win they were on a run of four games without a win. Lately they haven`t been scoring much, but neither conceding. To be more precise their goal difference in the last five games is 2:2. Their records at home and on the road are pretty similar, and their overall goal difference of 12:16 represents their style of play which is pretty rigid. They will be without injured Bobadila and Finnbogason.
Dortmund are undefeated at home in 2016, and if they stay unbeaten tonight they will equalize the record from 1965. They are clear favourites for this game, and will be eager to finally win and go on a winter break with optimism. Augsburg don't concede much, but at Signal Iduna it will be a completely different situation. Dortmund will make sure to record three points and will attack from the first minute. They should score multiple times here, and even Augsburg scoring should not be excluded, since Dortmund are defensively vulnerable. All in all, I think we will see Borussia's win with over 2.5 goals being scored in the match.
