Augsburg – WWK Arena to claim another notable scalp?

A 3-1 defeat on the road against an in-form Hoffenheim was how the Fuggerstadter begun the second half of the Bundesliga season. The visitors actually took an early lead in that one, Michael Gregoritsch heading them in front inside ten minutes, but it was fairly one-way traffic thereafter as Markus Weinzierl’s men were beaten for the first time in four Bundesliga outings (W1 D2). They remain in the relegation play-off in 16th.

A trip back home, to the WWK Arena, ought to bring about a revival though. Since opening 2021-22 with successive four-goal home defeats to Hoffenheim and Leverkusen, Augsburg have lost once in six home outings (W3 D2). Having held RB Leipzig to a draw in their most recent outing here, arguably the most sensational result of the season so far was Augsburg’s defeat of visiting Bayern in November.

Key Stat: Should they find the target this weekend then FC Augsburg will have stretched their scoring run in consecutive Bundesliga home matches to eight – with all but their 1-0 victory over Gladbach seeing both teams on the scoresheet among these games.


E. Frankfurt WIN & BOTH TO SCORE



Frankfurt – Eagles reeling from last week’s capitulation?

The Eagles were also beaten on their first Bundesliga outing of 2022. They must wonder how, though, after building a commanding 2-0 half-time lead at home to Borussia Dortmund only to concede three times in the closing stages – twice in the final three minutes of normal time – to lose 3-2 at Deutsche Bank Park. Just a second loss in nine league matches (W6 D1) for Oliver Glasner’s previously in-form charges.

Frankfurt will probably appreciate being back on the road this weekend then. They have taken maximum points from four of the last six Bundesliga away games, turning over champions Bayern in Munich last October, and have found the net at least twice in each of the last four such matches. It certainly helps that they are facing Augsburg, winning three and losing none of the past four encounters between the teams.

Key Stat: Following last week’s capitulation against Borussia Dortmund, no Bundesliga team this season has lost more points from winning positions than the 12 of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Augsburg Vs Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Advice

Both sets of players will be determined to atone for making a losing start to the new year, but only one can achieve that and recent history suggests it will be the visitors who bounce back on Sunday afternoon. Frankfurt are currently unbeaten in four versus Augsburg (W3 D1), haven’t conceded a single goal across any of these fixtures, and were 2-0 victors on their most recent visit to the WWK Arena.


FC Augsburg Vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Key Facts:

  • Eintracht Frankfurt are bidding to extend their unbeaten run against FC Augsburg to five matches this weekend (W3 D1). Impressively, Frankfurt did not concede a single goal across any of these four fixtures.
  • Augsburg have scored in every one of their past seven Bundesliga home games, losing only one of their previous six league games at their WWK Arena (W3 D2).
  • This is a Frankfurt side which could take some stopping though. The Eagles have scored 2+ goals in each of their past four Bundesliga away matches (W3 L1).


Just one defeat in their last six at home tells us Augsburg are no pushovers at their place, particularly as the likes of Gladbach, RB Leipzig and even Bayern Munich have all come unstuck in this fixture this term. A safer bet could be goals. Augsburg are enjoying a seven-game scoring streak in Bundesliga home matches while Frankfurt are looking to score multiple goals (2+) for the fifth away league game running.
