Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Augsburg / Bundesliga – This season very good Eintracht slipped for first time this year in the Europa League but it is still strong in the Bundesliga. The same cannot be said for Augsburg which occupies the second position above the red line, or the first one that leads to the relegation play-off. Augsburg lost three previous matches, while Eintracht is still undefeated in the Bundesliga this year. Eintracht won their match played in the first part of season by 3-1.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Augsburg begins 14.04.2019 at 18:00 CET
On Thursday ended Eintracht’s excellent series in the Europa League as it lost away the 1st quarter-final leg to Benfica by 4-2. Before that they played 10 matches in the Europa League and lost none of them. On top of it, it was the first ever defeat this year. It is a big question would they lose if Ndicka wasn’t sent off after just 20 minutes. Despite having a player less on the pitch they managed to score two goals, but their defence couldn’t keep up. They are definitely tired; however, the match is important for continuation of positive results in the Bundesliga. We expect several refreshments in the team.
Probable lineups Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp – Hinteregger, Hasebe, Ndicka – da Costa, de Guzman, Rode, Kostic, Gacinovic – Rebic, Paciencia
Augsburg’s situation about survival is not exactly comfortable but it is still not alarming. After three defeats they remained undefeated three times, and then lost three matches in a row. Out of it one in the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal after which they had to say goodbye to the competition, while in the Bundesliga they lost two matches and received seven and scored no goals in the process. They lost in Nurnberg by 3-0 and to Hoffenheim at home by 4-0. That sealed fate of manager Baum and new strategist is Martin Schmidt who will definitely make some changes in the team.
Probable lineups FC Augsburg: Kobel – J. Schmid, Gouweleeuw, Khedira, Max – Koo, D. Baier – Hahn, Gregoritsch, M. Richter – Finnbogason
Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Augsburg PICK
It is possible that defeat in the Europa League has shaken Eintracht but they are anyway in much better shape than Augsburg. The guests have changed the manager and perhaps he brings new energy in the team, however, it is not likely that they can do something in Frankfurt.
