Saturday at the WWK Arena, as Augsburg host Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

Augsburg, currently struggling in thirteenth place, will face the challenge of a visiting, fifth placed Frankfurt.

Augsburg go into this match with 14 points secured

It was three points secured for Augsburg in their last fixture, beating Stuttgart 2-1 at Mercedes Benz Arena.

Also, Augsburg need to get out of the losing habit, with six recorded in the last 12 fixtures. With 14 points (4W, 6L and 2D), they are established in thirteenth position in the League having won four games, drawn two meetings, and lost six matches.

When Augsburg host Frankfurt, they will do so on the back of one win, two darts, and three defeats on their own ground.

A win in this fixture, would take Augsburg’s points from 14 to 17, so far this season.

Augsburg are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Enrico Maassen is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without nine of his key players.

With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, Eintracht Frankfurt have managed to gain 20 points

A loss to Borussia Dortmund home, and then B Mönchengladbach at away is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Bundesliga. Frankfurt will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Also, Frankfurt keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last nine fixtures is astonishing this season. Their position is fifth in the League and they have 20 points, that is, 6W, 4L and 2D having won six matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost four games.

Frankfurt have won three meetings, drawn one game, and lost one game of their five League matches playing away this season.

Eintracht Frankfurt will have 23 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

Frankfurt have a good scoring record this season, with 25 netted so far (22 from open play and three penalties). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Daichi Kamada (7), Jesper Lindstrom (5), and Randal Kolo Muani (3). Frankfurt have shown a poor defensive solidity so far, having conceded 20 goals in their previous fixtures.

Frankfurt may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
