THE TEAM NEWS

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg are winless since winning their opening two games under Martin Schmidt in April and they have managed just one point so far this season.
  • Stephan Lichtsteiner is suspended after his dismissal against Werder Bremen so with Raphael Framberger still regaining his fitness, Tin Jedvaj is likely to move to right-back with Marek Suchy slotting in at centre-back.
  • Noah Sarenren-Bazee and Sergio Cordova both featured in a friendly last week following their recent injuries while Alfred Finnbogason could make his first start of the season after two brief substitute appearances.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Koubek; Jedvaj, Suchy, Uduokhai, Max; Baier, Khedira; Richter, Gregoritsch, Vargas; Finnbogason

Unavailable: Gouweleeuw (Injured), Iago (Injured), Gotze (Injured), Lichtsteiner (Suspended)

Doubtful: Cordova (Injured), Sarenren-Bazee (Injured), Framberger (Injured)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt came from behind to beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-1 at home last time out but they have lost their last three Bundesliga away matches.
  • There could be a debut for Andre Silva, who arrived on loan from AC Milan on transfer deadline day with Ante Rebic going the other way, completing Eintracht's new attacking line-up.
  • Midfielders Jonathan de Guzman and Mijat Gacinovic have both been ruled out with injuries but coach Adi Hutter has plenty of options to choose from, with Martin Hinteregger declared fit to play against his former club.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Trapp; Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Da Costa, Kohr, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Goncalo Paciencia, Andre Silva

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), De Guzman (Injured), Gacinovic (Injured)

Doubtful: Ronnow (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

Augsburg have conceded nine goals in their opening three league games of the season and their defence will not fancy coming up against Eintracht Frankfurt's new fearsome front three. There were four goals in both games involving these two sides last season and a similar amount can be expected again.
