Dortmund vs Augsburg
That's a match from the 7th round of German Bundesliga between Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg.
Dortmund are enjoying an excellent start of the season with two wins in CL group stages against Brugge(0:1) and Monaco(3:0) and also are the leaders in the domestic league. The ex-coach of Nice Lucien Favre made a miracle with this team and now they not only look very sharp in CL with chances to break deep in the tournament after the groups, but also to conquer Bayern for the title. Bayern are in crisis, that's obvious and some players said it directly they don't like the new coach' methods so much and the lack of playing time for some of the club stars. Borussia players have to use the moment and win their games in Bundesliga. It would be great for them if the problems in Munchen continue and the distance between the two clubs extends in the next rounds.
Now about the pick- I chose to play this one Borussia to win and over 2.5 goals for two reasons. The first one is that Borrusia had three home games in the Bundesliga till now and won all of them with goal difference 14:2- 7:0 against Nuernberg, 3:1 against Frankfurt and 4:1 against Leipzig. You can easily see goals are inseparable part of their home games, so that's the first reason to think it will go over 2.5 goals without much problems, maybe with BTTS. The second reason is the fact Augsburg have self-confidence right now after they took a point at Allianz Arena against Bayern and destroyed Freiburg in the last round 4:1 at home with a hattrick by Finnbogason. I can feel how Borrusia will land them on the ground so badly, because Augsburg have to visit the team in best moment form in the Bundesliga right now.
Dortmund will miss for this match Pulisic, Schmelzer, Toprak and Kagawa, while the visitors will be without Schieber, Dong-Won Ji. Ja-Cheol Koo, Kilian Jacob, Fredrik Jensen and Stafylidis are doubtful.
Borussia attacking players are performing excellent with Sancho, Alcacer, Reus and Larsen, while the visitors also have Finnbogason, Hahn and Gregoritsch, who can produce interesting things infront of Burki. My prediction is a home win+over 2.5 goals and 3:1 as a correct score.
