Augsburg – Borussia Dortmund
Augsburg hosts Borussia Dortmund at the WWK Arena in Augsburg in a match from the second round of the Bundesliga. This one is going to be interesting, so let’s preview it right now.
Let’s start with the visitors. Borussia Dortmund are looking for their second win since the beginning of the season. In the first round Die Borussen hosted Borussia M’gladbach at the Signal Iduna Park and rocked them with a 3-0 win. It was a perfect start of the new season for Lucien Favre’s team. Erling Haland scored his first two goals for the season while the 17-years old teenager Giovanni Reyna scored one as well.
Lucien Favre clearly chosed the youth for this game against Borussia M’gladbach. Alongside Reyna, he put another 17-years old player on the pitch. This is the new signing from England Jude Bellingham who started in midfield for Dortmund.
It’s exciting what Borussia Dortmund have at the moment – a mixture between brilliant young players and players who are more experienced. Can they really challenge Bayern Munich for the title? It would be difficult, but certainly not impossible.
Augsburg also started their Bundesliga season with a win. They faced Union Berlin in the capital and went home with a 3-1 win. Ruben Vargas opened the score for Augsburg while Gregoritsch and Hahn scored two crucial goals between the 82th and the 89th minute.
Augsburg expect another difficult season in the Bundesliga, so every point they can win will be really important for the club. Now they have a really tough challenge ahead, though.
That’s our preview for the Bundesliga fixture between Augsburg and Borussia Dortmund from the second round. On Saturday these two teams will go head to head and clearly we know who’s the favourite. Don’t forget Augsburg also started their season with a win, though.
