Team News

  • Kevin Vogt could replace the injured Paul Verhaegh at right-back.
  • Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker is fit again and could replace Vogt in his natural position in defensive midfield, meaning Andreas Ottl will have stay on the bench for now.
  • Ja-Cheol Koo and Knowledge Musona compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • In attack, Sascha Mölders returns from injury to replace Stephan Hain, with Aristide Bancé most likely starting on the bench.
  • Sven Bender could get a chance to start alongside Ilkay Gündogan, should manager Klopp decide to rest Sebastian Kehl.
  • Kevin Großkreutz, Moritz Leitner and Ivan Perisic compete for two spots in attacking midfield.
  • In attack, Julian Schieber could get a chance to start after another Champions League week, but Robert Lewandowski is likely to keep his spot in the Bundesliga.

Prediction

  • Augsburg are last in the table and they have huge problems creating and converting chances. The returns of Ja-Cheol Koo and Sascha Mölders give them hope in this department though.
  • Dortmund are only fifth in the table at the moment, having struggled in the Bundesliga in the last few weeks. They need to get a result now to try to close the gap in front of them.
  • Expect Augsburg to defend deep and Dortmund to make the running. The away team should be favourites to win.
