Eintracht Frankfurt's Five-Match Winless Streak Continues After 4-0 Defeat to Borussia Dortmund
Eintracht Frankfurt were routed in a 4-0 defeat against Borussia Dortmund last weekend at Signal Iduna Park. Donyell Malen scored twice (24′ and 66′) as goals from Jude Bellingham (19′) and Mats Hummels (42′) left Eintracht Frankfurt without a point on their winless journey. Eintracht Frankfurt took two steps backward with this defeat, moving from 7th place down into 9th. They now possess 42 points after 11 Wins, 9 Draws and 9 Losses in 2017. Frankfurt will look to put an end to their five-match winless streak and secure two out of a possible 15 points, having alternated between losses and draws throughout this season, LDLDLDL. Overall, the home side have experienced their longest winless run of any team in the Bundesliga since 2015/16 [0W, 4D, 4L]. But they remain unbeaten against Augsburg over six matches (4W, 2D, 0L) – something they will hope remains the case following this weekend’s match-up. Oliver Glasner will likely opt for a 3–4-2–1 formation featuring Randal Kolo Muani as attacker this weekend against Sunderland, as Jakic, Max, Ndicka, Hrvoje Smolcic (knee injury), Hrvoje Smolcic and Jesper Lindstrom are out due to injuries.
Augsburg Struggle to Find Winning Form, Remain Without a Win in Last Five Matches
FC Augsburg earned one point against Stuttgart at the WWK Arena last weekend with a 1-1 draw, but remain without a win in their last five matches (DDLLD), dropping them down into 13th position with 30 points [8 Wins, 6 D, 15 L]. Augsburg have only managed two wins out of ten Bundesliga away games during that span [0W, 2D, 8L]. Last season was Enrico Maassen and Fuggerstadter’s inaugural top-flight campaign – when they went through an away winless streak of 10 games without victory during a single top-flight season. Enrico Maassen might employ a 4-4-2 formation with Dion Drena Beljo and Ermedin Demirovic providing attack. Beljo scored Augsburg’s only goal against Stuttgart last time out – his second of the season after 13 appearances. Augsburg could be without up to five players for this weekend’s clash against Frankfurt; Strobl (cruciate ligament injury), Yeboah (ankle injury), Dorsch (nose) and Gikiewicz (shoulder). Fredrik Jensen may also miss out, due to an ankle injury.
