Augsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Preview and Predictions

Augsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 4 February 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).

Eintracht confirmed high ambitions by making a stunning start to the year netting five goals in back-to-back impressive wins over Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach in 2018. Can the Eagles continue their spell of excellent form this Sunday when they are to take on top-half rivals Augsburg at WWK-Arena?

The hosts were nowhere near being as efficient as their counterparts having only netted one goal in last two games. It came last weekend when Caiuby bagged the equalizer away at the rock-bottomed Koln to keep Fuggerstadter in the top half of the Bundesliga standings.

Icelandic striker Alfred Finnbogason is still trying to find the form he had in the finish of 2017 when he took his league tally to 11 by netting a hat-trick in the home draw against Freiburg. On the other aide, Sebastian Haller has brought the fine form into the New Year bagging one of team’s three goals in the first fixture of the year when Eintracht steamed past Wolfsburg 1-3 on the road. The Frenchman is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.

The good news for the home team manager Manuel Baum is his team’s fine run at WWK Arena where Fuggerstadter are unbeaten in last five league ties. The streak will, however, be on a serious test given that the Eagles have won three and drawn two or last five league ties.

Augsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction

The draw does appear to be a standout bet here. It has been the most frequent of outcomes in H2H ties between these rivals and both teams’ form somewhat suggest such scenario.

Niko Kovac and his men are flying high at the moment, but Augsburg can be a very tough nut to crack in their own backyard (unbeaten last five games there).

Braver tipsters can go with the 1-1 scoreline at the odds of 6.00.
