Eintracht Frankfurt is hosting FC Augsburg at Commerzbank Arena in round 2 of the German Bundesliga. Eintracht is very inconsistent at the moment, and their defense is not looking well. Eintracht was on a 2-game winning streak before their season opener, but they got destroyed against Hoffenheim last week.

Eintracht has lost 3 of their last 4 games, including a DFB Pokal match, and their season opener against Borussia Dortmund. Eintracht has had only 40% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Eintracht conceded in the 23rd minute, but they tied the score in the 27th minute. Just 5 minutes later, Eintracht has conceded another goal, and just 2 minutes later another goal. Borussia has scored 2 more goals in 2nd half, and Eintracht has lost this match 5-2. Hauge is the newest addition to this team, and he was their only goalscorer in this game. Pecar is the only injured player for Eintracht. With a new coach at the helm, a few new players on the roster, Eintracht has a lot of potential, but their defense is just terrible right now, and that is something they need to fix.

Augsburg has been hot and cold so far, and after finishing last season in 13th place, I think they can expect pretty much the same result this season. In their game against Hoffenheim at home, Augsburg has had 46% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 37th minute, Augsburg was hanging in there, until the 78th minute when they conceded another goal. With 2 more conceded goals after that, Augsburg has lost this match 0-4. Finnbogason and Strobl are injured, while Cordova and Oxford are questionable. I don’t think Augsburg is a bad team, they are just going through a bad spell, but they will need to improve their defense fast if they want to stay out of the relegation zone. Offensively, I think Augsburg can do enough to stay in the top half of the table, but if they don’t get a win soon in Bundesliga, it will be hard to get there.

Augsburg hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Eintracht. This is going to be an interesting game, and I think we will see quite a few chances, but I think Eintracht will get a win here just because they have more offense than Augsburg.
