Dortmund must take a positive approach to this game, if they are to get anything out of, following their recent defeat to B Mönchengladbach at the Borussia Park.

Dortmund keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last four matches is astonishing this season and they are looking worthy of the aspiration to qualify for Champion’s League football. With fourth, they currently sit 12 points in the League having won four fixtures and lost two games.

When Dortmund host Augsburg, they will do so on the back of three victories on their own ground.

Augsburg will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to SC Freiburg at the Schwarzwald-Stadion. Markus Weinzierl’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Markus Weinzierl knows that a run of three losses in six matches for his Augsburg side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With five points, they currently sit fifteenth in the League having won one game, drawn two games, and lost three meetings.

Augsburg have drawn two fixtures and lost one game of their three League matches playing away this season.

A win in this fixture, would take Augsburg’s points from 5 to 8, so far this season.

Augsburg are likely to be missing two of their key players when they start Saturday’s game, due to injury and illness.
