Borussia Dortmund Europa League
Without their top scorer, Al Hain-Cole expects Baum's men to struggle against a Schwarzgelben side that has tightened things up at the back recently

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to maintain their strong recent form when they welcome Augsburg to Signal-Iduna Park for Monday’s Bundesliga clash.

Peter Stoger has won five and lost none of his first eight league games since taking command in December, the longest unbeaten start made by a manager in the club’s history.

Latest Odds

Having won their last three in a row, his side are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with bet365 to extend that streak here.

Meanwhile, Augsburg have claimed just one point from their last available 12 on the road but can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) to claim a shock win in this one.

The sides shared a 1-1 draw when they met on this ground last season, and there are odds of 7/2 (4.50) available on them cancelling each other out yet again.

Team News

Andriy Yarmolenko, Maximilian Philipp and Jaden Sancho will be missing through injury for the hosts, while Manuel Akanji may deputise for Jeremy Toljan, who is a doubt.

Manuel Baum is without the suspended Daniel Baier in midfield, with top scorer Alfred Finnbogason still injured.

Blunt Augsburg attack

Responsible for over a third of the his side’s league goals so far this campaign, Finnbogason is sure to be sorely missed by a visiting frontline that has failed to score in either of their last two fixtures.

This lack of cutting edge could prove particularly costly considering their opponents’ recent tightening up at the back, with Die Schwarzgelben having not been breached in over 200 minutes of Bundesliga football.

Preview and predictions

Without their main striker, odds of 6/4 (2.50) are well worth backing on an Augsburg team that has struck just 13 goals in 11 away matches this season losing without scoring against Dortmund.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
