On Friday, 1st March (20:30 CET), FC Augsburg will host current Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in the WWK ARENA. FCA want to use the match against BVB to show a good response to the disappointing 5-1 defeat last time out in Freiburg. Here are the top facts you need to know ahead of the match on Friday night: Weaknesses away from home: Borussia Dortmund have only won one of their first four away matches in 2019. BVB’s sole victory was a 1-0 win against RB Leipzig. Dortmund have failed to score each of their last two away matches and haven’t scored 248 minutes of competitive action. History in Augsburg’s favour: Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre has only won two of his nine Bundesliga matches against Augsburg (three draws, four defeats). This is the worst record the Dortmund coach has against any Bundesliga club, scoring an average of one point per match. Scoring streak: FCA have scored in each of their last ten Bundesliga matches against Dortmund, the longest streak against any Bundesliga side. Familiar faces in Dortmund: FCA striker Julian Schieber played for Borussia Dortmund between 2012 and 2014, making 35 Bundesliga appearances and scoring three goals. Marwin Hitz spent five years in Augsburg and made 157 club appearances before joining Dortmund last summer. Dangerous from set-pieces: FC Augsburg have scored seven goals from corners so far this season, the joint highest in the league alongside FC Bayern München.
