Eintracht Frankfurt v FC Augsburg Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 20th December 2013

Eintracht Frankfurt were having a season to forget up until last weekend when they somehow managed to beat second placed Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 away at the BayArena and that victory has now moved them out of the bottom three of the league table and more importantly installed bundles of confidence to the players and the hosts will be confident of carrying on their good form in this game on friday night.

FC Augsburg are having a decent enough season having secured 23pts which has them in 8th position of the league table and will also be confident about getting the victory in this game after their impressive 4-1 victory at the SGL Arena last weekend over bottom of the table Eintracht Braunschweig.

Eintracht Frankfurt v FC Augsburg Team News

Eintracht Frankfurt Team News:

Stefan Aigner, Alexander Meier, Alexander Hien and Marc Stendera are all unavailable for the hosts as they continue to recover from respective injury problems. 4-2-3-1 looks the likely formation that manager Armin Veh will use for this game, which will see either Joselu or Vaclav Kadlec leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Flum, Rosenthal and Schrock.

Striker Vaclav Kadlec is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 4.

Dominik Reinhardt, Jan Moravek and Panagiotis Vlachodimos will be missing for the visitors as they continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems and Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker will also miss this game due to suspension. 4-1-4-1 looks the likely formation that manager Markus Weinzierl will use for this game which will see Raul Bobadilla leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Halil Altintop, Hahn, Vogt and Werner.

Midfielder Andre Hahn is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 6.

8 goals have been scored during the previous 2 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 4.00 which strongly suggests that this game will see it’s fair share on goals on friday night.

FC Augsburg: W D L W W

Both sides have won 3 times from their last 5 matches played, but with FC Augsburg having lost just 1 of those matches, they would seem to have the slight advantage on the recent form statistics.

Eintracht Frankfurt v FC Augsburg Match Betting Odds Market.

Eintracht Frankfurt have been installed as the clear favourites to win this game by the online bookmakers with a current best price of 11/8 with Ladbrokes (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) on offer, which for me seems extremely short considering they have only managed 3 victories thi season.

The Draw has not happened in any of the previous two meetings between the clubs, so some might argue that one is due especially with both sides having recorded decent victories last weekend and at a current best price of 5/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) this could be worth getting on as your main cover bet for this game.

FC Augsburg are certainly the side in the better form heading into this game and having also managed to secure over double the victories this season than their hosts I find it extremely odd indeed to see the online bookmakers offering up a current best price of 23/10 with Sky Bet (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) and this does look the value play here in my opinion.

Eintracht Frankfurt v FC Augsburg Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Both the managers and their players will expect to win this game on friday night and with the previous two games between the two clubs having seen 8 goals scored, everything suggests that this one will follow suit and be a very exciting game.

Eintracht Frankfurt will obviously be brimming with confidence having beat Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 last weekend away from home a result that was seen as a major shock, but can they do it again this week ?

I’m not so sure they can as FC Augsburg head into this game having won three of their last five played and having wracked up four goals against Eintracht Braunschweig in their match last weekend I just can’t see the host’s being able to keep them out and for me the away win looks a very attractive proposition here at generous odds.
