Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs. Augsburg

Sports Mole previews the Bundesliga clash between Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg on Saturday afternoon.

Last year's Bundesliga and Champions League runners-up Borussia Dortmund will be looking to start the second half of the league season on a positive note when they take on Augsburg on Saturday afternoon.

Dortmund, currently fourth in the table, have a lot of ground to make up if they are to challenge Bayern Munich for the title, with the Bavarians currently 12 points ahead with a game in hand.

Augsburg impressed during the first half of the season and are currently eighth, although they have won just two of eight away from home.

For Dortmund the winter break came at a good time in terms of their injuries, and although Mats Hummels is now in full training he is not expected to return until next week.

Neven Subotic and Ilkay Gundogan are still not ready to return for the hosts, but Jan Moravek could come back from injury for Augsburg.
