Frankfurt and Augsburg draw 1-1

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Eintracht Frankfurt finished the first half of the Bundesliga season without a home win after drawing 1-1 with Augsburg on Friday.

There were no real chances until Augsburg broke the deadlock through Raul Bobadilla in the 33rd minute. Frankfurt failed to clear a cross and Bobadilla slotted home from close range at the far post. Frankfurt replied quickly, forcing Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz into some splendid reflex saves from Joselu and Stephan Schroeck. But he was helpless when Jan Rosenthal fired home from six meters (yards) after having the ball headed down by Joselu in the 42nd minute.

Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp and defender Carlos Zambrano combined to prevent Arkadiusz Milik from scoring a late winner for Augsburg following a counter-attack. Augsburg is undefeated in its last five matches.
