THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji, Schulz; Weigl, Witsel; Sancho, Reus, Hazard; Paco Alcacer

Unavailable: Morey (Injured), Raphael Guerreiro (Injured)

Doubtful: Brandt (Injured)

  • Borussia Dortmund, who topped the table for much of last season before falling away towards the end, have been tipped by many to go one better this time around after a summer of big signings.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Roman Burki is fit again after sitting out last Friday's DFB Cup tie at KFC Uerdingen and will start, but otherwise it likely to be an unchanged starting line-up.
  • Julian Brandt remains a fitness doubt but fellow summer signings Mats Hummels, Nico Schulz and Thorgan Hazard are all set to start, while centre-back Omer Toprak has left on loan.

AUGSBURG

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Koubek; Teigl, Khedira, Suchy, Pederson; Baier, Gruezo; Hahn, Gregoritsch, Richter; Niederlechner

Unavailable: Gouweleeuw (Injured), Iago (Injured), Cordova (Injured), Gotze (Injured), Sarenren-Bazee (Injured)

Doubtful: Max (Injured), Vargas (Injured), Moravek (Injured)

  • Augsburg suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at fourth-tier outfit Verl in the first round of the cup last Saturday and have won just one of their last 12 Bundesliga matches away from home.
  • Having been appointed in April, coach Martin Schmidt has been busy building his own squad over the summer with no fewer than eight new players arriving and 11 departing the club.
  • Schmidt is missing several players through injury but striker Alfred Finnbogason is back in training and could be named on the bench, with summer signing Florian Niederlechner set to start up front.

BETTING ANALYSIS

Dortmund lost just once at Signal-Iduna-Park in the Bundesliga last season, winning 10 of their last 12 home league games. They were also winning at half-time in nine of those matches so, given Augsburg's poor recent away record, double result looks a good market to go for.

BETTING TIP: Borussia Dortmund/Borussia Dortmund (Double result)
