Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Seeing that Augsburg chiefs failed to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, the Bavarians are seen as one of the main favourites to suffer relegation to the 2. Bundesliga. Augsburg have been struggling at the start of the new Bundesliga campaign, with the team conceding 9 goals in total in the first three league fixtures.
Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, are a team with two faces, with the team beating Hoffenheim and Fortuna Dusseldorf at home, while suffering a 2-1 loss to Leipzig in their first away game of the season. The last season’s Europa League semi-finalists aim to retain their spot in the top half of the Bundesliga standings and seeing that Augsburg just can’t find their best form at the start of the season, we are tempted to put our money on Filip Kostic and Co.
Highlighted Player (Philipp Max):
Philipp Max is the son of the former striker Martin Max, who is famous for being one of the oldest winners of the top scorer crown in Bundesliga, at the age of 32 and 34. Born in Viersen, Germany, Philipp Max started his career in SC Baldham, after which he joined 1860 Munich in 2003.
Bayern Munich youth team was his next destination, but three years after Max signed for Schalke 04 in 2010. For two years he played in the youth team and after that he was moved to Schalke 04 II, recording 54 games and netting 3 goals in the process.
He made his debut for the Shalke 04 senior team on March 2014 in the clash against Borussia Dortmund, as a replacement for Julian Draxler. However, he did not impress during his spell with Die Königsblauen, so he moved to Karlsruher and later on to Augsburg, which was a spot on decision. The left back, who can also play as a left midfielder and left winger, was the second-best assist provider in the Bundesliga during the season 2017/18, just behind Thomas Muller.
