Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Predictions & Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund are flying high these days. They won three on the trot in all competitions netting an impressive 13-goal tally along. The phenomenal streak started with a 7-0 thumping of recently-promoted Nurnberg. It was followed with a magnificent comeback and a 2-4 victory over Bayer Leverkusen away at BayArena.
Lucien Favre continued to shine on Wednesday evening when they stormed past French Monaco 3-0 at Signal-Iduna-Park. All goals were scored in the second half through Jacob-Bruun Larsen, Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus. Paco thus made it four goals in last four appearances for BVB in all competitions and he is proving out to be a fantastic addition to Favre’s squad.
Will the hosts be able to maintain such scintillating form on Saturday afternoon when they take on Augsburg in the 7th round of Bundesliga?

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg: Prediction
Augsburg started the season in a slower fashion, but they grew in form over the last couple of weeks. Manuel Baum’s side picked up four points from last two rounds. They held the defending champions Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw before capitalizing on such result with a demolishing 4-1 victory over Freiburg on the home patch last weekend.
Each of six games they played so far in the season saw goals at both ends and we simply have to expect a high-scoring contest when they take on the red-hot BVB side on Saturday.
The home win & BTTS is definitely the stand-out pick at the odds of 2.75. Dortmund notched 13 goals in last three games. They overtook Bayern Munich at the very top of the Bundesliga standings and they certainly want to stay there as long as possible.
The Over 2.5 goals FT is a genuine banker at the odds of 1.57.
