Eintracht Frankfurt will look to return to winning ways and keep pace with the top four when they face Augsburg at the WWK Arena in the Bundesliga on Saturday (November 5).
The Eagles saw their four-game winning run across competitions end following a 2-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund last weekend, which relegated them to fifth position in the league table.
However, Oliver Glasner’s side had no issues beating Sporting CP in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, securing a late 2-1 win to seal their place in the Round of 16.
Augsburg, meanwhile, are down in 13th place with 14 points from 12 games. They haven’t won their last four top-flight games since beating Schalke 3-2 at the start of October.
During this period, the Fuggerstadter were also knocked out of the DFB-Pokal by Bayern Munich, suffering a crushing 5-2 loss in the second round.
