Match Date: 10 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: SGL Arena

 

Augsburg overflows with confidence as they meet Eintracht Frankfurt in SGL Arena. This is their last match this season and there is no doubt that they are one of the most improved clubs in the tournament. This is in stark contrast to Frankfurt, which suffered a major drop in the ranking this season.

 

Despite the fact that the clubs will be entering their final matches, this does not lessen the excitement in the upcoming game. For Augsburg, which happened to be the match’s online betting favorite, this is a great opportunity to display their strength, whereas for Frankfurt, it will be a redemption of their lackluster performance throughout the season.

 

Last year, Augsburg barely survived at the 15th spot of the table. However, this has tremendously changed as they are now occupying the league’s 8th spot. A closer look to its present team form suggests their high possibility of winning in the clash against Frankfurt. They won 3 of their last 6 matches. They were defeated in 2 of them, but has managed to secure an even steven finish in the other remaining encounter.

 

On the other hand, Frankfurt, as mentioned, presents a different story. The latter sealed a qualifying spot in the Europa League last season. But right now, they are struggling at the 13th spot.
Frankfurt’s possibility of regaining the upper hand against Augsburg is slim—that is if one has to consider its team form.

 

Contrary to Augsburg, Frankfurt has only won once in their last 6 matches. The rest of the games that Frankfurt played ended in 4 defeats and a single defeat.

 

But while it is true that Augsburg has the overt upper-hand, it is also possible for the match to end in a draw. A quick examination of their previous matches revealed that both clubs have managed to score 2 victories against each other. One of their encounters even ended in a draw. Therefore, a stalemate is also most likely to take place.

 

Prediction:  FC Augsburg or draw
