Eintracht Frankfurt – FC Augsburg 0-0: search for form continues! SGE goalless after BVB debacle



Julian Nagelsmann wants to slow down Joshua Kimmich

Eintracht Frankfurt is still waiting for the first competitive win under Oliver Glasner after the zero number against FC Augsburg.

Oliver Glasner did not take part in the lap of honor, which was not a real one. The Eintracht Frankfurt players said goodbye to the fans after the next disappointment in this still young season, picked up a bit of affection despite the poor 0-0 win against FC Augsburg – Glasner was meanwhile alone in front of his coaching bench and was probably still thinking about it the lack of early form of his new team.

“Everyone saw that we wanted to win the game,” said Eintracht defender Christopher Lenz, also looking at the warm applause from the fans. In the second half, the team “built up the necessary pressure, but the final punch and luck were missing.” Goalkeeper Kevin Trapp would also have thought it was “nice” “if one of the many chances came in”.

Eintracht Frankfurt “like a slim model who feels fat”

Under Glasner, the team is still waiting for the first competitive win after the surprising first round in the DFB Cup and the bankruptcy at the start of the league in Dortmund (2: 5). The Augsburg team around coach Markus Weinzierl were more stable compared to the previous week when they got under the wheels against Hoffenheim (0: 4).

The previous results under Glasner had already scratched the self-confidence of the Europa League participant. There were also personal problems such as the injury of captain Sebastian Rode, who will be absent for an indefinite period. “It’s like a slim model who feels fat. We have to show the guys that they are good,” Glasner had said before the game.

But initially there was hardly any sign of trust in one’s own strength. In front of around 20,000 spectators, the hosts struggled to control the game. Except for a blocked shot by SGE attacker Rafael Borre (12th), it remained calm in front of the gates.

Eintracht increase after the break is not enough

After a hectic initial phase, the game flattened out further. Several ball losses, little speed and no ideas: Augsburg limited themselves to a compact defensive without the ailing captain Jeffrey Gouweleeuw. The disappointing and harmless Eintracht came only through new entry Jens Petter Hauge (38th / 41st) to further deals.

The Glasner-Elf increased after the break, but the new offensive trio with Borre, Hauge and Jesper Lindström showed their potential too seldom. Filip Kostic (55th) and Lindström (57th) tested Augsburg goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz from a distance.

But the best opportunity had the Augsburg Carlos Gruezo (59th), who put the ball over the goal from 25 meters after a mistake by Eintracht keeper Kevin Trapp. After this wake-up call, Glasner’s team increased the pace again and pushed for victory. However, the clear conclusions were also missing in the heated final phase.

Eintracht Frankfurt – FC Augsburg: The votes for the game

Oliver Glasner (trainer Eintracht Frankfurt): “We’re not really happy with the point. A win would have been deserved. I’m going into the next few weeks very positively, that was a step in the right direction. The goal was missing, we might have to criticize that. We’re going with one very good feeling home. “

Markus Weinzierl (FC Augsburg coach): “We’ll take the point. We worked well as a team for 95 minutes. It wasn’t that much offensive, but it was also difficult today. We know we have to improve. But we made a step forward.”
