Borussia Dortmund will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat to Bayer Leverkusen with victory over Augsburg away from home tonight.
Jurgen Klopp’s side conceded the fastest goal in Bundesliga history at Signal Iduna Park on the opening weekend of the season, as they went down 2-0 in front of their own fans.
The 2013 Champions League finalists will now be eager to get to winning ways in the league tonight and should be confident of getting the better of their hosts at the SGL Arena.
Dortmund finished second in the Bundesliga in 2013-14 and will have to kick-start their campaign tonight if they want to keep last season’s runaway champions Bayern Munich in sights.
Augsburg will not be easy pushovers, though, as Markus Weinzierl’s side will be looking for a European place this term.
Last season the Bavarian club finished eighth in the league, but started the new campaign with a 2-0 away defeat to Hoffenheim.
Here is how Augsburg and Dortmund will line up tonight:
