Our football match prediction:
As expected, Eintracht Frankfurt failed to spoil Borussia Dortmund’s party at Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend. Die Adler suffered a 3-1 loss to the star-studded Millionaires, with the team extending their winless run in the league to ten games. Frankfurt are six points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Augsburg and their Bundesliga status could be in great danger soon. The time has come for die Adler to return to winning ways and we predict that the hosts will fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s football match. Augsburg, on the other hand, did well to beat Koln at their WWK Arena and it has to be noted that they finished the game with nine men on the field. Both Ja-Cheol Koo and Finnbogason were sent off in the 2-1 win over Koln and the duo will be sorely missed against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Highligted Player (Timothy Chandler):
Timothy Chandler is a professional footballer, who started his senior career at Eintracht Frankfurt reserve team. In 2010 he signed for Nurnberg and he made 17 appearances for the reserve team. After playing 95 league games for Nurnberg he returned to Eintracht Frankfurt on 3 June, 2014, signing a three-year contract with his former club. Chandler was born in Frankfurt on 29 March, 1990, but seeing that his father is American, the defender decided to play for the USA national football team. Chandler made his USA debut on March, 2011, coming as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Argentina. The Freiburg defender made USA 2014 World Cup squad, but he did not play for the Yanks at the showpiece tournament in Brazil. It has to be noted that Chandler made 10 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as a right midfielder and a right winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Augsburg):
Augsburg are a German football club founded in Augsburg, Bavaria back in 1907. Die Fuggerstadter play in German Bundesliga and with 12,200 members they are regarded as the largest football club in Bavaria. Augsburg wear white shirts and they host their rivals at WWK ARENA. The capacity of the stadium is 30,660 and it has been the home of Augsburg since 2009. Augsburg won the Schwaben Cup 13 times and it has to be noted that they were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2011. The club qualified for the Europa League 2015/2016 group stages and thanks to a 3-1 win over Partizan in Belgrade they booked their place in the last 32. However, Liverpool proved to be a big catch for the German outfit in the Europa League knockout stages. Die Fuggerstadter’s main rivals are TSV 1860 Munich and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other.
