Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund

A second straight Champions League group defeat was hard to take, but Borussia Dortmund are back in their comfort zone as they aim to extend their lead at the top. Augsburg is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's favourite opponents, having scored eight goals in as many appearances against them, including a hat-trick on his Dortmund debut.
The Augsburg game is Dortmund's seventh in the space of just 22 days, but Peter Bosz insists fatigue won't be an issue at the WWK Arena on Saturday.

"Our batteries are full. We've managed to rotate a lot," the Dutchman told Friday's press conference. "Augsburg are playing very well again. To start a season like that you must be doing a lot of things very well indeed. But we're also in good form. Our confidence hasn't been damaged by Tuesday's game with Real Madrid, when we were deservedly beaten against an excellent side. We need to be prepared to face a side that can play long balls but is also capable of keeping it simple."

Dortmund's current goal difference of +18 is also the club's best return after six matchdays. It is also the best goal difference any club has had at this stage of a season.
