Augsburg suffering from injury crisis ahead of second leg

Posted by

Augsburg are reportedly suffering from their own injury crisis ahead of our Europa League last-32 second leg match on Thursday evening.

The Echo state that seven of their first-team squad are out injured.

Their most significant absentee is Raul Bobadilla. The Paraguayan forward is their top scorer this season having already bagged 11 league goals, but he limped out of the first leg holding his hamstring and will definitely miss out.

Another big blow is the loss of midfielder Markus Feulner. He broke a cheekbone in training during the week and will also miss the game as he stays in Germany for surgery.

Daniel Baier (ankle), Raphael Framberger (knee), Hong Jeon-Ho (thigh), Piotr Trochowski (thigh) and Ji Dong-won (ill) are all also unavailable.

In brighter news for the club, they earned a vital three points from their weekend clash against fellow strugglers Hannover. It moved them four points clear of the drop zone in the Bundesliga table.

South Korean midfielder Koo Ja-Cheol scored the only goal of the game after coming on as a sub, and is expected to be named amongst the starters on Thursday.
