Our Prediction:

Eintracht Frankfurt will win

Augsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

A lively contest is on the cards and we predict that the two sides are going to play out a high-scoring draw at WWK Arena. Eintracht Frankfurt are enjoying a season to remember and they are eager to extend their winning run in all competitions to four games. The Bavarians have been having their ups and downs in the Bundesliga this term and, as a result, they occupy 10th position in the standings ahead of the visit of die Adler. Serbian attacker Luka Jovic is leading the goal-scoring chart and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Augsburg will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Hoffenheim when they host Eintracht Frankfurt at their WWK Arena on Saturday afternoon. Augsburg are tough to beat at home and it has to be noted that they suffered only one loss in previous five home games in the German elite division.

There is a special value in backing the hosts to keep a clean sheet as they concede no more than one goal in last four league matches, while Augsburg failed to produce up front past the likes of Nurnberg and Hoffenheim in last two rounds. Even though Frankfurt are in the midst of the Europa League quarter-final tie against Benfica, we cant imagine any other scenario but a confident home win coming here. Fuggerstadter have a horrendous away record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 9 defeats in 14 league games on the road this season.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg Score Prediction

Eintracht Frankfurt is one of the few clubs in Germany that won the Bundesliga; in the season 1958/1959 were able to win the league. There are many famous football players that played for EIntracht Frankfurt in their career like Pfaff, Moller, Low, Okocha, Kopke and Berthold. Other important prizes Eintracht Frankfurt won are the DFB Pokal (4 times) and the the UEFA Cup in 1980.

Historically, The Eagles have always struggled with the trip down South Eintracht Frankfurt are yet to win a Bundesliga match in Augsburg (D3 L3) and Augsburg have lost just one match at home this season too (W1 D3 L1). Our prediction: a 2-2 draw. Whats more impressive is when you see some of the teams that Augsburg have taken results against at the WWK Arena, drawing to both Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig there so far. Well, even with Frankfurt as the form side, there are some reasons against seeing them get the win here. So if goals are to be expected, who gets the result? Ultimately, the balance of these things does lead us to think this will end deadlocked. Fortunately for the hosts, its also been in Frankfurts away matches where weve seen statistically weaker performances from them too.

Eintracht Frankfurt are eyeing a place in the Champions League, whereas Augsburg are determined to secure yet another Bundesliga survival. Die Adler head into the match following a 2-1 win over Schalke in Gelsenkirchen and they are determined to extend their winning run in the German top flight to seven games. Commerzbank-Arena will host Sundays football game between Eintracht Frankfurt and Augsburg, the two teams who have different ambitions in the season finale.

As things stand, Frankfurt are in the top four, though theres only four points between them and Gladbach, so they must continue to make progress. Frankfurts main concern is likely to be the Europa League and thus making amends for their defeat in Portugal on Thursday evening, though they cannot take their eyes off the ball in the league just yet.

With Augsburg being a side that struggled massively to impose themselves away from home, this is a gilt-edged opportunity for the hosts to rebuild their confidence ahead of Thursdays big Europa League encounter. Given Frankfurts recent efforts at home, where theyve kept back-to-back clean sheets, and Augsburgs recent efforts on the road, where theyve scored just one goal in their last five, a small bet on Frankfurt to Win to Nil appears to be the best option.

Needless to say then that Frankfurts electric offence should, therefore, be able to capitalise on that, having scored two goals or more in three of their last four competitive away matches (W3 D1). First off, Augsburg boast one of their best ever attacking records in the Bundesliga after 11 games, yet could do with some improvement at the back a good combination for the goals markets. Looking at this match betting-wise then, the value looks to be in plenty of goals. Augsburg have kept just one clean sheet so far in the 18/19 campaign the main reason their results have been so mediocre and the Bavarians even conceded two goals against an offense as weak as Nurnberg in their last home outing (a 2-2 draw).

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

They have been great in the final third, led by in-form duo Ante Rebic Luka Jovic, which should have them very motivated to pick up where they left off. Die Adler ended up with ten men early in the contest and thus failed to build on a great five-match winning streak in Lisbon, after beating Fortuna Dsseldorf (0-3), Inter (0-1), Nurnberg (1-0), Stuttgart (3-0), and Schalke (1-2).

Hes scored seven goals in just 486 minutes of Bundesliga football so far, including one in last weekends 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim. League standings and form dont always tell the full story, and with that being said, while Augsburg dont look much at the minute, the Bavarians have impressed after a slow start to the season. Manuel Baums men became the first side to take points away from Bavaria against champions Bayern Munich with a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena, while also holding RB Leipzig to a draw AND testing league leaders Dortmund in a 4-3 thrilling defeat a match in which they found themselves ahead in twice over the past few months. Augsburg are a capable side, and its been the return of last seasons second top scorer, Alfred Finnbogason, from injury that has seen them thrive.

Augsburg have now failed to score in each of their last two on the road, while theyve found the net in just one of their last five, as well as in just three of their last nine. Augsburgs recent efforts on the road dont exactly bode well ahead of this match. Of those nine, theyve lost seven. Defensively, as theyve surrendered an average of 2.07 goals and an average of 1.71 expected goals on the road this season, theyve clearly not been good enough, though their efforts in the final third have also blighted them considerably in recent times. Sundays visitors are without a win in nine away matches.
