Borussia Dortmund would restart their Bundesliga campaign with this visit to Augsburg and Lucien Favre’s side would be hoping that they can start the second half of the season on a solid note as they look to win the league title.
Augsburg would be looking to end this season in a European place, they are currently 10th on the league table and five points separate them from the last European place.
Both of these teams made a losing end to the first half of their campaign last year and they would both be keen to start well here.
Alfred Finnbogason is a major absentee for Augsburg otherwise they have their full squad, while Borussia Dortmund has no injured players ahead of this game.
