Live ticker FC Augsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt (Bundesliga 2021/2022, 19th matchday)

3:30 p.m

The game’s referee is Sven Jablonski, who is currently leading the two teams onto the pitch and will open the game in a few seconds. The video assistant referee Pascal Müller provides support from Cologne.


Because keeper Trapp and Kostić are out due to positive PCR tests and Hinteregger and Hrustić are sent to the bench, Oliver Glasner sends four new players into the starting XI: Diant Ramaj replaces Trapp in goal, Hasebe in defense and Sow in midfield Form a column, Touré begins on the far right. At FC Augsburg the personnel situation was a little easier for Markus Weinzierl, so that he only sent Uduokhai and Hahn to the bench compared to 1: 3 in Hoffenheim. In their place are Oxford and new signing Ricardo Pepi, who is making his starting XI debut!


In eight home games this season, the Augsburgers scored a solid eleven points and have an overall balanced record. However, a look at the away table doesn’t really increase hopes of a win at home: Eintracht is the fourth strongest away team of the season, who, in addition to the surprise win in Munich, were able to get three more three-pointers abroad.


In the last four direct duels, however, Augsburg looked bad: There was only one draw in three defeats, and the Fuggerstadt team didn’t score a single goal in these games. Can Frankfurt extend the unbeaten series against favorite opponents FCA?


Fun fact: Only three teams have beaten FC Bayern Munich this season. Two of them are dueling with each other today. In addition to FCB nemesis Gladbach, both Frankfurt, who have become Bayern’s “lesser nemesis” in recent years, and (as already mentioned) FCA clinched a 2-1 win over the record champions.


They were also on the right track for a long time against BVB, their difficult opening opponent in the second half of the season, before Dortmund turned up the heat from the 70th minute and turned a 2-0 lead for Eintracht into a defeat – from an SBU point of view. Frankfurt wants to recover from these twenty minutes today and needs an away win to do so.


The Frankfurters under Oliver Glasner put in an even stronger series before the winter break. While the SBU was still level on points with today’s opponent on the tenth match day, the Adlerträger have built up a nine-point lead over the hosts – although they also played a solid second half of the first half of the season. Since the beginning of November, Eintracht has won six out of seven league games and also comfortably stayed overnight in the Europa League. If that wasn’t even an announcement to the top teams – the Hessians are marching in big steps!


However, the Weinzierl squad did not get off to a good start in the new year, losing 3-1 at TSG Hoffenheim. In order not to worry too much, she would like to defeat Eintracht today and could thus relegate VfB Stuttgart to 16th place.


Before the turn of the year, the world in the Fugger city looked relatively in order. Although the FCA could not seriously distance themselves from the relegation place, the form curve of the southern Germans pointed in the right direction. Although the defeat against Bochum and the point-sharing against Fürth were a bit sobering, they scored a strong twelve points in the second half of the first half of the season – for comparison: in the first nine games there were only six. This was also due to the fact that they personally defeated Bayern Munich 2-1 and stole a point from the Leipzigers, who were strengthening under Tedesco.


Hello and welcome to the Sunday afternoon game in the Bundesliga! While Augsburg is stuck in the table cellar, Frankfurt’s eyes should be directed upwards. At 3:30 p.m. the two teams will meet in the WWK Arena.
