Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to make amends for a 4-2 loss to Borussia M’gladbach when they host Augsburg at their Signal Iduna Park on Matchday 19. Edin Terzic’s troops have been struggling in the Bundesliga of late, with the team dropping to seventh position in the standings. Borussia Dortmund have slim chances of winning the Bundesliga title, but a win over Augsburg could see them regain their spot in top four.
Erling Haaland, who scored a brace in the defeat to die Fohlen, will be the man to watch in the home side, while Denmark international Thomas Delaney returns from suspension. The Bavarians, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Union Berlin, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Borussia Dortmund. Since Edin Terzic’s men are eager to keep their Bundesliga hopes alive, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts.
