Maaßen confirms that Gikiewicz's comeback is near
FC Augsburg trainer Enrico Maaßen had some good news to convey concerning one of his team’s pivotal actors at the Thursday FCA presser.

Maaßen also addressed the pressures of facing a side as strong as Eintracht Frankfurt without his regular midfielders. 

Maaßen made no secret of the fact that high-flying Eintracht constituted an intimidating opponent when speaking at today’s press conference. Augsburg will be missing both midfield sixes Elvis Rexhbecaj and Carlos Gruezo due to suspension. Additionally, Ruben Vargas and Mads Pedersen are questionable with injuries. Not wanting to tip his hand, Maaßen did hint at starts for Arne Maier and Julian Baumgartlinger.

English center-halve Reece Oxford will, according to Maaßen, “back in the matchday squad” after a long injury layoff. Naturally, the 23-year-old will not be an option for the starting XI in his first suit-up of the season. After Frankfurt, Augsburg face Union Berlin and VfL Bochum before Bundesliga play concludes for the calendar year.
