1st vs 2nd is the highlight of this weekend's fixtures.

5th vs 3rd could also be quite entertaining especially with Haaland unstoppable.

11th vs 10th on Friday night - both mid-table and a bit inconsistent.

8th vs 7th in the race for Europe. Freiburg winning would add another name in to the hat...

Meh, it's the "small" Rheinderby :P

 

 

Hope we can carry the positive momentum into our match against Wolfsburg. If we play like we did against Frankfurt, perhaps a bit more clinical, and like we played in the 2nd half against Kaiserslautern, we can get a point in Wolfsburg at least.

I think anything less than a win at home to Augsburg this evening will be seen as a failure for Eintracht Frankfurt. These are the kind of matches that they need to be winning. We have been so erratic this season, it's time to become more consistent. We disposed of the likes of Bayern and Leipzig this season, so games against Augsburg should really be 3 ensured points.

I am not sure what line-up Hutter will play against Augsburg, but he seems to currently prefer having Andre Silva up front as the centre forward. Chandler is also now starting for him and Abraham is expected to be back in defence for us. I can see us scoring more than once against this Augsburg side, but we really need to be careful of their strikers Finnbogason and Niederlechner as they are both very dangerous strikers.

A win today will move Frankfurt up to 9th position in the table and if Wolfsburg draw or lose tomorrow, we will remain in 9th place until the next matchday weekend. The Champions League places are realistically out of our reach, but a Europa League place is still within our grasp, we just need to become more consistent and play as well as we did against Bayern more often.

Gonna try and watch tonight's game too. Andre Silva should start. I rate him.

Silva certainly has a lot of talent, that's unquestionable, but he needs to show his skills more often, instead of going completely quite in some matches. Maybe a regular starting place in the team and at the focal point of our attack is just what he needs. 

With Paciencia and Dost in the team, we certainly have a lot of strong competition in attack. That's why the club thought it best to loan young Joveljic out to Anderlecht, to give him more playing time. Even though Andre Silva is starting up front for us this evening, Paciencia is actually our leading scorer in the Bundesliga so far this season, with 7 goals.

Good save from Trapp to deny Augsburg. Looked cert to be 1-0 to the away side then.

Yes, that's the value of having a top class goalkeeper in your team, super save by Trapp.

I don't think that there is a Bundesliga team that has rotated it's lineup as many times and used as many players as Frankfurt have this season.

Kohr and Hinteregger are of course ex-Augsburg players, so it will be interesting to watch and see how they do against their former club.

Frankfurt look a little lost as they stride in to the Augsburg half. They're fine at winning the ball back and comfortable in possession in the defensive and middle thirds but when they get towards the Augsburg area they seem unsure what to do.

1-0! Chandler! Emphatic finish from a player in good form.

Yes, that was a great strike and an important goal! 

Chandler has been the inform player for us recently. He wasn't even considered at the start of the season, but he has really been playing well in recent matches and he's been popping up with some vital goals for us.

Trapp is a class goalkeeper, he saved us many times last season and he's been terrific since he returned from injury this season.

Excellent couple of goals in the space of a few minutes. Chandler proving once again his footballing capabilities and Silva's goal should give him increased confidence. We have taken most of our scoring chances in this match, which is a very good sign.

Chandler has now scored 4 goals in 4 games for us in 2020, which is impressive for someone overlooked at the start of the season. While Kostic has had two assists in this match, once again demonstrating his importance to the team.

Frankfurt beating Red Bull twice, and now Augsburg very comfortable, makes our performance where we almost beat them last week look even more promising.

4-0! Kostic rounds off the scoring just before the 90mins are up.

Kostic scores the 4th goal and puts the icing on another great performance by him and by Frankfurt in general. I demanded a win against Augsburg and in the end Frankfurt have thrashed them 4-0, so I am a happy chappy right now.

It's 5-0!! Kostic scores a 5th! This is an even greater scoreline, what a great performance by the team and Kostic has to be the man of the match tonight, two assists and two goals by the talented Serb wide man. Excellent display by him and he has led by example in this game.

Different performances on different days, not too surprising with Frankfurt, given the amount of rotating that Hutter does. The players do well to find some cohesion given all the tinkering that the Austrian manager decides to undertake.

Yea, but, maybe Rösler made us perform so good that we gave Frankfurt a run for their money. 2nd half against Kaiserslautern was VERY good as well. God damnit, I'm really excited to see what we'll be able to do against Wolfsburg tomorrow. So much uncertainty, a little bit of hope... I trust in Uwe Rösler. I watched every interview and press conference with him so far. Very detail orientated and open minded coach. Bit of a contrast to Funkel, who was very stoic and unflappable.
