*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Borussia Dortmund took a major step towards the Champions League final in midweek when they scored a superb 1-0 win over PSG in the competition’s semi-final first leg. With the return fixture in France a major distraction, 5/6 favourites Dortmund could be less competitive outfit on Saturday, however.

Augsburg have been given just a 28.6% chance of upsetting the odds at Signal Iduna Park, though they are meeting Dortmund at an opportune time and BVB have won just once in four attempts at home in the Bundesliga. Our top football predictions suggest it might be sniffing out Augsburg in the double chance market on Saturday.

Dortmund were held to a 1-1 draw by Augsburg in December and though that was the second stalemate in four previous meetings between the clubs, we have to go back to September 2020 to find the last Augsburg victory in this fixture.

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg prediction
Jadon Sancho was in sensational form in the Champions League in midweek – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Jadon Sancho

Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho reminded everyone of his talent with a virtuoso display in the Champions League against PSG on Wednesday evening and the attacking midfielder put in the sort of performance that must have had Man Utd fans thinking “what if?”.

Can Sancho shine again?

With two goals and one assist in the Bundesliga since his loan move to Dortmund, Sancho hasn’t quite matched previous heights in Germany just yet, though Wednesday’s showing should help to build confidence and the 24-year-old could star again on Saturday.
