Over the next couple of days, FC Augsburg will welcome their players absent on international duty back to the squad. Ten players have represented their national countries and will return to Augsburg ahead of FCA’s Bundesliga clash with Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday (15:30 CET). After preparations began for the clash, FCA coach Manuel Baum spoke about… …Alfred Finnbogason’s injury: “Alfred has suffered a light muscle injury. It is nothing serious but we don’t know whether he will be able to play against Frankfurt on Saturday. We don’t want to risk anything. He will only play if he is 100% fit. However, we have enough quality in the squad to cope with his absence. The likes of Julian Schieber, Dong-Wong Ji, Michael Gregoritsch, Sergio Córdova and Marco Richter will all want to play.” …the strain of the international matches for the absent players: “At FC Augsburg, we don’t have the regular routine of Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday matches. For our players, it has been more difficult to cope with the frequent matches compared with those who regularly play in the Europa or Champions League.” …Julian Schieber’s return from injury: “Julian Schieber has made a very good impression. You can see he is having fun and is giving everything in training. He is definitely in contention to play against Frankfurt.” …looking ahead to the Frankfurt match: “At FCA, we are at a level where we can compete with any other Bundesliga club. We want to defeat Frankfurt and secure all three points. That is our main goal.”
