Operation three points, for Borussia Dortmund, engaged today in the first seasonal match against Augsburg
After the draw of Bayern Monaco in yesterday’s advance, Borussia Dortmund looks for the three points at stake in the home match against Augsburg.
Dortmund have great seasonal ambitions, confirmed by the good summer market and the deserved victory in the German Super Cup, won against Bayern for 2 to 0.
In the last Bundesliga championship Borussia Dortmund had almost succeeded in bringing the title home, a dream broken by a disappointing championship’s second part which allowed the comeback of the team coached by Kovac.
During the summer transfer market, Borussia Dortmund – sold Diallo and Pulisic – brought together such phenomena as Mats Hummels, Julian Brandt, Thorgan Hazard and Nico Schulz.
In this first match of the season Borussia Dortmund will face the Augsburg, fresh from a pre-season negative phase. In the first round of the German Cup he was in fact eliminated from the Verl, a fourth series team. In recent friendlies, the team coached by Martin Schmidt – who barely survived last season – lost 6-2 against Villarreal and 3-2 against Bologna, showing serious defensive limits. The arrival of the new goalkeeper Koubek could serve to give more security, but resisting Borussia Dortmund’s attacks will be very difficult.
