Enrico Maaßen: “We don’t want to look too much above or below ourselves in the table. We have to pick up points. Frankfurt are not in a good period at the moment, but they are still a team that have played in the Champions League [this season]."

The Eagles' 4-0 loss at Dortmund last weekend was their eighth straight league match without a win, although they did put in an impressive performance to beat Union Berlin 2-0 in the DFB Cup quarter-finals at the start of April. Given their European aspirations, Frankfurt will need to return to winning ways soon if they are to enjoy more continental adventures next term.

The Bavarian side have hit a rough patch at just the wrong time of the season and are currently without a win in their last six Bundesliga games (D3 L3). That has left them dangerously close to the relegation zone, just five points clear of VfB Stuttgart in the play-off place. They have not enjoyed too much success on their travels this term, taking just 11 points from a possible 42.
Frankfurt: probable XI

Augsburg have picked up just two points from their last 10 away matches - their longest such winless sequence in their Bundesliga history.
Natural born predator
With 23 direct goal involvements (13 scored, 10 assists) Randal Kolo Muani is the most dangerous attacker in the Bundesliga this season.
Only Bochum (13) have conceded more headed goals this season than Frankfurt's 12, with Augsburg just one further behind. Enrico Maaßen's side have scored fewer headed goals (four) than everyone else.
Frankfurt head coach Oliver Glasner is unbeaten in seven games against Augsburg, overseeing three wins and four draws, conceding just three goals in the process.
Philipp Max made a name for himself at Augsburg, scoring 15 goals in 145 Bundesliga outings before joining PSV Eindhoven in September 2020. The 29-year-old has impressed since joining Frankfurt this year, but will miss out here through injury.
Dry patch to end?
Frankfurt are without a win in their last eight Bundesliga matches, earning just four of a possible 24 points across that period. Augsburg, meanwhile, are winless in their last six games (D3 L3).
