Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
A majority of the recent outings between Augsburg and Dortmund has been excellent with a lot of goals to their credit, but Dortmund will look to make this game as a statement of intent if possible. After having been unable to enjoy a lot of success so far, Augsburg are in danger of dropping into the relegation zone at the worst possible time due to a very poor defence. Our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

Marco Reus still remains doubtful for the game after missing almost a month of action with a thigh injury. Jadon Sancho has been the star for Dortmund over the last few matches and he was especially impressive in the weekend’s win over Bayer Leverkusen. After having moved up to 8 goals and 10 assists for the campaign, it is hard to ignore Jadon Sancho. Our first goalscorer prediction back Jadon Sancho.
