Both Bundesliga clubs fight for European spots

FC Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt are directly contending each other for the last qualifying spot for next season’s UEFA Europa Conference League in a crucial game on Friday. The home team came into the game on the back of a very disappointing 3-0 away loss to Stuttgart last weekend. The result means Dino Toppmoller’s side are now winless in their last four in the Bundesliga, severely hampering their momentum heading into the season’s final stretch. They will have to bounce back and have to get something from this match if they want to stay in the Conference League spot.

Augsburg are no doubt in better form than their opponent on Friday and will be confident going into this match as after the appointment of the Danish coach Jess Thorup they have improved drastically. Even though the away team will miss some players due to injury still they pose a big threat to the inconsistent Frankfurt side. Currently, they are just three points behind Frankfurt in the Bundesliga and will hope to go up in the points table to get the continental spot.

Players to Watch

Omar Marmoush (Frankfurt)

Omar Marmoush have a compact and agile body frame, with a low centre of gravity which helps him to drive through tight spaces. He is a right-footed striker who gives his team’s attacking threat with the variety of actions he applies across opponent defences. His 2-way threat makes him a valuable asset as he’s adept at scoring in a variety of ways in the box and also driving through defences from his bomb runs into spaces to attack. His understanding of the space is really good which makes him a more lethal striker.

Ruben Vargas (Augsburg)

A player with a lot of pace and a low centre of gravity. The clever movements off the ball to create space for his teammate is one of Vargas’s key strengths in his game. He has the talent to strike the ball perfectly and many times has scored goals from the edge of the box. He takes a lot of touches inside the opposition penalty box, he can play as an attacking midfielder as well as on the wings and many times he drifts outside to create problems for the opposition defence.
