THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt beat RB Leipzig at home for the second time in 10 days in the DFB-Pokal in midweek but have tended to struggle against the lesser teams in the Bundesliga this season.
  • Midfielders Gacinovic and Rode will be assessed after coming off with knocks on Tuesday, but striker Dost should return having missed the last two games through illness.
  • Chandler, who has scored two goals in three starts this year, is also set to return to the starting XI after being benched in midweek.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Trapp; Toure, Abraham, Hinteregger, N'Dicka; Sow, Rode; Chandler, Kamada, Kostic; Dost

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured), Fernandes (Injured)

Doubtful: Gacinovic (Injured), Rode (Injured), Dost (Illness)

AUGSBURG

  • After three successive defeats, Augsburg came from behind to claim an important 2-1 win at home to Werder Bremen last Saturday.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Koubek missed last weekend's match because of illness but returned to training on Tuesday and should be fit enough for this one.
  • Cordova has been ruled out again, while fellow striker Finnbogason is likely to be on the bench again as he builds up his match fitness following a lay-off.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Koubek; Jedvaj, Gouweleeuw, Uduokhai, Max; Richter, Khedira, Baier, Vargas; Hahn, Niederlechner

Unavailable: Cordova (Injured), Asta (Injured), Iago (International duty)

Doubtful: Schieber (Injured), Koubek (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Augsburg did the double over Frankfurt last season but they have only won twice on their travels since their last visit to the Commerzbank-Arena last April. The home side have started the year strongly and will be keen to keep moving back up the table, which they should do with victory on Friday.
