Next match in
A rare half-time deficit for Frankfurt to overturn, and especially at home. With both teams fighting for things at either end of the table, this won't be decided easily.
JOVIC FIRES OVER
Huge chance for him to get a consolation goal at the end, as Gacinovic sends his fellow countryman through on goal. He slows down to compose himself and gets challenged in doing so, and his effort skies high over the Augsburg goal.
KOSTIC FIRES WIDE
The ball runs loose to the back post in Augsburg's box from a corner and Kostic runs on to meet the ball, but smashes his strike high and wide over the crossbar.
GREGORITSCH SURELY SEALS THE WIN
Richter does all the hard work reaching the byline in the Frankfurt box, but he is forced to push the ball back out to Gregoritsch on the edge of the box. He then curls the ball into the far bottom corner with superb composure.
FRANKFURT PUSHING ON
The home side have been on top in the last few minutes and pushing still for an equaliser. Kostic has been the key man all game, can he make the difference late on?
KHEDIRA WITH A STUNNING BLOCK
Frankfurt power forward on the counter through Kostic, who crosses into the box. It's clear as far as Gacinovic who heads it into space in front of Rebic. The Croat is about to shoot from 8 yards out with a goal almost certain, but Rani Khedira flies across the box to deny him with a stunning block.
RICHTER ALMOST HAS HIS HAT-TRICK
The ball runs loose to the back post in the Frankfurt box and Richter reaches it first. He slips as he goes for the ball, but gets the ball heading towards goal, sadly wide though. Still just the two goals for Richter so far.

AUGSBURG MISSING CHANCES
The visitors could end being punished for their poor finishing. Half chances for Richter and Hahn have come and gone as this game has opened right up. It's very much end-to-end football, with Augsburg enjoying most of the attacking play in this second half.
HASEBE CLEARS OFF THE LINE!
Miraculous defending from the Japan international. Richter picks out Hahn at the back post with a lovely lob, and he beats Trapp with an attempted shot. The ball then falls to Koo with no goalkeeper to stop him, but Hasebe sees what is coming and gets on the line to head it clear. It was a certain goal but for the defender's intervention.
JOVIC FLUFFS HIS LINES
Lovely play from Kostic who stays patient as he races down the left wing. He slows down to pick the perfect cross for Jovic, who is ready to pounce on the ball with a volley, but he slices his effort well wide of goal.
BIG TASK NOW FOR FRANKFURT
Trailing 1-2 and down to ten men, now the Eagles really have to stand up and show how much they want to play in the Champions League next season. And a huge chance for Augsburg to secure valuable points. Either way, this is going to be a fun 40 minutes.
The Frankfurt captain fouls Schmid and receives his second yellow card, and is sent off.

STUNNING STRIKE FROM RICHTER!
Like a London bus, when you wait so long for one... two come along at once. Richter completes his brace with a fantastic strike. He's played the ball out wide on the left and decides to have a go from 25 yards out, lacing the ball across the face of goal and into the far bottom corner beyond Trapp.
FOUR MINUTES ADDED TIME
After the injury delays, a bit of time added on at the end of the first half here.
KOBEL CAN'T CONTINUE
The Augsburg goalkeeper can't continue here after a knock to the head, and he's had to be replaced despite attempting to continue.
JOVIC DENIED BY KOBEL
The Serbian forward is on the end of another cross into the box, getting his head to the ball and diverting it towards goal. This time Kobel reacts well to first save the goal, before gathering the ball.
RICHTER POKES HOME
Richter collects the ball with his back to goal from Gregoritsch. He turns his man before sliding the ball beyond Trapp's reach for his first ever Bundesliga goal. And it could be a huge one in the relegation battle for Augsburg.
CLOSE FOR AUGSBURG
Richter plays the ball low into the box from the left wing and Koo goes for a flick to take the ball towards goal, but it bounces off Rode in the end and Trapp makes the save.
HINTEREGGER OFF INJURED
The Austrian had made a great start to the game, but now he's coming off after picking up an injury. He's replaced by young Frenchman Evan N'Dicka.
KOSTIC RUNNING THE SHOW
Everything good for Frankfurt has come down the left wing for the home side, and of course through Filip Kostic. The Serbian is up and down the pitch like no-one else, and always seems to find the right pass.
WHAT A HEADER!
Kostic's cross is perfect, but Paciencia makes it look even better with his header. He beats the defender to it and powers the header into the top corner from eight yards out. Outstanding leap and drive to put that one home and give the Eagles the lead.
FRANKFURT IN THE ASCENDANCY
As you'd expect, it's the home side trying to dictact most of the play so far. Finbogasson had a half chance for the away side as he was played in on goal, but a poor touch let him down and he was caught by the Frankfurt defence.
JOVIC CLOSE AGAIN
World-class play from Hinteregger, who turns past an Augbsurg forward outside his own box and smashes a long ball forward onto the foot of Kostic. He then crosses, but the ball is cleared, only as far as Jovic. The Serb smashes a first-time strike straight at Kobel and he holds on.
JOVIC HEADS OVER
Da Costa gets to the byline and loops the ball into the box towards Jovic at the far post. He rises high to win the header, but his effort drifts just over the Augsburg crossbar.
UNDERWAY IN FRANKFURT
The final action of Matchday 29 from Frankfurt is underway, with the home side looking to go closer to securing a place in next season's UEFA Champions League and Augsburg fighting relegation.
2.2 GOALS PER GAME
This is the final fixture on Bundesliga Matchday 29 and it is unlikely to go out with a whimper. Only Bayern (40) and Dortmund (47) have scored more goals on home turf than Frankfurt (31) this season, with the Eagles averaging 2.2 per game in front of their own fans. Augsburg, meanwhile, do not even average one goal per match on the road, having found the net just 13 times in 14 outings.
AUGSBURG TEAM NEWS
New Augsburg boss Schmidt has made four changes to the team that lost 4-0 at home to Hoffenheim last week. Young defenders Reece Oxford and Kevin Danso have dropped to the bench, while Philipp Max and Dong-won Ji are not in the squad at all. Rani Khedira, Konstantinos Stafylidis, Marco Richter and Alfred Finnbogason have all come into the starting Xi.
FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS
Hütter indicated in the build-up to this game that he might rotate his side given their Europa League committments, but it is essentially the same team that has played in recent weeks. Sebastien Haller is still out of action with an abdominal complaint so Goncalo Paciencia starts agin, but Ante Rebic is fit to play after suffering a knee injury last week. Almamy Toure starts in the back three instead of Evan Ndicka.
FRANKFURT STARTING XI
Trapp - Hinteregger, Hasebe, Toure - Da Costa, Rode, Fernandes, Kostic - Rebic - Paciencia, Jovic SUBS: Rönnow, Ndicka, De Guzman, Gacinovic, Willems, Torro, Abraham
AUGSBURG STARTING XI
Kobel - Schmid, Gouweleeuw, Khedira, Stafylidis - Baier (c) - Hahn, Koo, Gregoritsch, Richter – Finnbogason SUBS: Luthe, Oxford, Janker, Schieber, Asta, Teigl, Danso
Frankfurt may have lost for the first time in 2019 in their Europa League quarter-final first leg on Thursday, but they are in a rich vein of form in the Bundesliga after winning their last six league outings. Can they make it seven in a row here?
HÜTTER WARY OF NEW-COACH EFFECT'
“The change in coach obviously changes the situation," said Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter in the build-up to this game. "A new coach always gives his team a lift - they all have their own approaches. The players want to prove themselves again and show that they belong in the starting eleven. Obviously there will be changes - Martin Schmidt has previously opted to switch to a back four, for example. Overall, though, I’m focusing on my own team and what we need to do in order to get another good result. We’ll have to recover well, gather our strength and put all our efforts into getting a result.”
DEBUT FOR SCHMIDT
There is a new man in the dugout for Augsburg today, with Martin Schmidt having taken over after Manuel Baum's dismissal. Schmidt, 52, has previously been in charge of Mainz and Wolfsburg and has overseen 100 Bundesliga matches to date (W32 D29 L39).
MUST-WIN GAME FOR FRANKFURT
The Eagles are currently fourth in the Bundesliga table, but the teams immediately below them - Gladbach, Hoffenheim, Bremen and Leverkusen - all won this weekend, so Adi Hütter's side need a victory of their own to cement their place in the top four. That would restore their four-point cushion ahead of Gladbach and keep them on course for UEFA Champions League qualification.
