Preview: Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Augsburg - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Bundesliga clash between Eintracht Frankfurt and Augsburg, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Eintracht Frankfurt welcome Augsburg to the Deutsche Bank Park on Tuesday aiming to get back to winning ways after their five-game unbeaten streak was brought to an end last time out.

On the other hand, the visitors have picked up just one point from their last two Bundesliga matches, and are in need of a huge boost.

Frankfurt tasted defeat for the first time in six games, losing 4-0 versus Borussia Monchengladbach at Borussia-Park on Saturday.

Matthias Ginter opened the scoring after just 10 minutes, before second-half goals from Jonas Hofmann, Ramy Bensebaini, and Hannes Wolf condemned Adolf Hutter's men to their fourth Bundesliga defeat of the season.

It was also the first time that Die Adler had failed to score in the league since they were thrashed 5-0 by Bayern Munich in October.

Tuesday's hosts kept their position in the top four despite that defeat, but their nine-point cushion from fifth place has now been reduced to six.

They have the opportunity to complete a league double over their visitors following a 2-0 win in December's reverse fixture.

Augsburg failed to make it three home wins on the bounce as they were held to a drab 0-0 draw by Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday.

In a game where clear-cut chances were few and far between, Heiko Herrlich's men were unable to find the winning goal that their possession and territorial advantage merited.

With 33 points from 29 games so far, the Fuggerstadter remain six points away from the top half but are on course to better their 36-point haul from last season.

Tuesday's visitors had a day to forget when they last visited Frankfurt in February, as they were on the receiving end of a 5-0 demolition.

Team News

Frankfurt's Ragnar Ache is expected to miss the clash due to a muscle injury that has kept him out for the past three Bundesliga matches.

Martin Hinteregger is also unavailable for the hosts as the Austrian defender is currently sidelined with a thigh problem.

Andre Silva will look to register once again after he failed to find the back of the net for the first time in four league games on Saturday.

Jan Moravek has not featured for Augsburg since February when he came on as a substitute in a 1-1 draw versus Bayer Leverkusen.

Iago made his comeback from an ankle injury last time out, and the 24-year-old is expected to retain his place in the starting XI.

Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Trapp; N'Dicka, Ilsanker, Tuta; Kostic, Rode, Sow, Durm; Kamada, Silva, Jovic

Augsburg possible starting lineup:
Gikiewicz; Iago, Uduokhai, Gouweleeuw, Framberger; Vargas, Khedira, Strobl, Caliguiri; Hahn, Richter


SM words green background

We say: Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 Augsburg

Frankfurt's home record has been solid this season as they are yet to lose a league game on familiar turf. We fancy them to keep that run going by claiming all three points in this one.
