Mainz vs Augsburg Preview & Prediction

Mainz have kept just four clean sheets in the league this season. Each of those shut outs came against bottom-half opponents. Meanwhile, Augsburg have bettered that tally with six clean sheets, four of which came against bottom-half opposition.

Mainz have failed to find the back of the net in four of their last nine Bundesliga fixtures, losing to nil on another three occasions during that period. Similarly, Augsburg have only scored in four of their last eight.

Both Teams to Score – No – 6/5 with Bet365


Mainz vs Augsburg Score Prediction & Odds

Mainz have the second-worst defensive record in the league, having conceded 62 goals from 30 games. That tally is matched by bottom side, Padderborn, and only topped by relegation-threatened Werder Bremen with 63.

Augsburg came out on top with a narrow 2-1 win the last time these two faced off in the Bundesliga. Their record against the bottom sides in the league is rather good. They’ve won four, drawn one and lost one against the bottom four sides so far this season.

Augsburg to Win 1-0 – 17/2 with bet365.


Mainz vs Augsburg First Goalscorer Prediction & Odds

Augsburg’s versatile left-back has hit eight league goals so far this season. Only Florian Niederlechner has outscored the German for Augsburg this campaign.

Often deputising on the left wing, Max has contributed goals on multiple occasions from this position but has also proven he can score from deeper. Max scored a late equaliser against Koln last time out and could make the difference yet again. At odds of 9/1, Max certainly represents value.

Philipp Max to Score First – 9/1 with Bet365.
