Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt will be heavy favourites to maintain the six-win thread in Bundesliga on Sunday afternoon when they play host to out-of-form relegation strugglers Augsburg in the last game of the day at Commerzbank-Arena.
The Eagles broke into the top-four in the league ladder thanks to such a splendid run of form. They are now four points clear off fifth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. Austrian manager really found the way to get the most of his extremely talented group of players as Frankfurt look unstoppable at the moment.
The hosts have a deadly attacking line-up with the names of Luka Jovic, Ante Rebic, Sebastien Haller, Filip Kostic etc, but we should not underestimate their defense either. The Eagles conceded only one goal in last four league matches and they kept two clean sheets against Inter Milan in the last 16 round of Europa League.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg: Head-to-head
Augsburg could potentially rely on the head to head tradition as they lead the tie by two wins coming into 14th encounter with the Eagles.
However, Frankfurt picked up a 1-3 victory away at WWK Arena when these two sides locked horns in late-November last year.
There were three or more goals scored in each of past three head to head affairs.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg: Prediction
The hosts should really have plenty of room to deliver past the struggling defensive line of Augsburg’s here. The visitors lost back-to-back league ties to Nurnberg (3-0) and Hoffenheim (0-4) and they also suffered DFB Pokal elimination to RB Leipzig in the meantime.
Fuggerstadter have a horrendous away record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 9 defeats in 14 league games on the road this season. Even though Frankfurt are in the midst of the Europa League quarter-final tie against Benfica, we can’t imagine any other scenario but a confident home win coming here. 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.
