After 32 games played, FC Augsburg are in the 13th spot and having 36 points to their name – only two points separate them from the relegation play-off place. In the last four matches, they improved their form significantly, registering two victories, a draw and the loss against Eintracht Frankfurt. In their most recent Bundesliga fixture, Augsburg were unlucky to concede the late equalizer on the road at Borussia-Park, so they had to satisfy with a point from the 1–1 draw. At WWK Arena, the hosts are on a two-game winning streak, as they managed to beat FC Koln and Hamburger SV, respectively. As for Augsburg team news: they have a few injuries to report: midfield duo Jan Moravek and Ja-Cheol Koo both remain out.
On the other hand, head coach Thomas Tuchel will remain on Borussia Dortmund’s bench for at least three matches – two remaining Bundesliga fixtures and DFB Pokal final against Eintracht Frankfurt, scheduled for the end of May. After obtaining the two-point advantage over Hoffenheim, BVB need to maintain the lead in order to reach UEFA Champions League automatically.

As regards visitors team news: Borussia remain doubtful over Sven Bender, Nuri Sahin and Andre Schurrle.
