• Augsburg vs. Dortmund isn't just the only meeting this weekend between two of matchday 1's losing sides, but it is also a battle between the sides sitting at the foot of the BL table.
  • FCA are back at the bottom of the table for the first time since matchday 14 of the 2012/13 season. It's the first time Borussia have been last in the Bundesliga table since matchday 2 of the 2007/08 campaign.
  • Augsburg's first BL home game last season (on matchday 1) also saw them host BVB and they suffered the biggest home defeat in their top-flight history (4-0).
  • FCA haven't beaten Dortmund in any of their six competitive meetings (four defeats).
  • The season has started with two competitive defeats for Augsburg, something that last happened in 2007/08, when the then second-division side lost their first three competitive games.
  • FCA are unbeaten in their last four Bundesliga home games (three wins), while Borussia haven't tasted defeat in any of their last six BL matches on the road
    (five wins).
  • Markus Feulner spent two years at BVB (2009-11) and won the 2011 Bundesliga title with Borussia.
  • Halil Altintop scored a hat-trick against BVB for Kaiserslautern in October 2005 – they are also his most recent goals against Dortmund.
  • Stefan Reuter played for Dortmund between 1992 and 2004 and won the German Championship (1995, 1996, 2002), as well as the Champions League and Intercontinental Cup in 1997.
  • Between 1992 and 1998, Stefan Reuter and current Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc were teammates at BVB.
  • Marco Reus didn't take a shot in 75 minutes during the game against Leverkusen – that last happened to him in a 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim on matchday 34 of the 2012/13 season.
  • With three goals and two assists (in three games), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been involved in the most BVB goals in competitive games this season. The Gabon international became the first Dortmund player to score a hat-trick on their BL debut on matchday 1 in 2013/14.
