Eintracht Frankfurt vs Augsburg Preview

After successfully talking Sebastian Jung into the Germany squad, Eintracht Frankfurt coach Armin Veh now says it is the turn of Kevin Trapp.

Augsburg celebrates their goal against Bremen.

Jung gained his first experience of life with the national team this week when he was selected as a replacement for the injured Jerome Boateng for the match with Holland, just weeks after Veh had recommend him and Sebastian Rode to Germany coach Joachim Low.

And Veh says Trapp is equally worthy of a chance.

"I see him clearly ahead of (Rene) Adler," said Veh, who does not regret for a minute paying 1.5 million euros to Kaiserslautern for his services.

"That was a major investment. For us, it was like the 40 million Bayern spent on Javi Martinez."

Money well spent, given the number of goals he has prevented so far this season.

"The saves he has made are incredible," said team-mate Alexander Meier in the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper.

"I am not putting myself under any pressure," said Trapp. "There are many factors which I cannot influence, so I'm relaxed about it all.

"Manuel Neuer is clearly Germany's number one, but there is a lot of competition behind him, and that is also a good sign for me."

There is less competition for a place in the Augsburg goal following an injury to Simon Jentzsch which sidelines him until January.

Mohamed Amsif, who has deputised for the former Wolfsburg goalkeeper for much of the season, finds himself back in goal again, at least until Christmas.

"I want to carry on from where I left off," he said.

Augsburg, who have won only one point away from home, have picked up all six of their points with the Moroccan in their goal, which could be a good omen for them.
