Augsburg vs Mainz 05
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 22 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Mainz 05 managed to clinch a highly-important victory on Monday evening when they saw off fellow strugglers Freiburg in a relegation six-pointer at OPEL ARENA. They had a huge help from VAR technology which gave them the penalty late in the first half even though the referee blew the whistle for the end of it at the 0-0 scoreline.
Players returned to the court from their dressing room as Pablo De Blass was safe from the spot to break the deadlock and open up the way for a huge win for the O-Fives. The Argentinian midfielder added one more late in the second half to four goals in this season. The team led by Sandro Schwarz is now lock on points with the likes of Wolfsburg and Freiburg. One of these three sides will have to play the relegation playoffs at the end of the regular season.
Augsburg vs Mainz 05: Head-to-head
Mainz were on a streak of three consecutive wins in H2H matches against Augsburg before Fuggerstadter terminated it beating the O-Fives 1-3 on the road in early-December last year.
Four of last five head to head games saw at least four goals scored and both teams on the scoresheet.
Sides have three wins apiece in matches at WWK Arena coming into their ninth meeting there.
Augsburg vs Mainz 05: Prediction
Augsburg dropped down to 11th place after winning just one of last nine league matches. Nonetheless, they are still on a safe distance from the relegation scrap being seven points adrift of their Sunday’s counterparts. Fuggerstadter had huge troubles with the efficiency in the final third in recent outings. They bagged two goals during the streak of four consecutive matches without a victory in Bundesliga.
Mainz, on the other side, conceded just one in last three league games. The standout bet would thus be Augsburg to score less than two goals in the game at the 1.57 odds. Also, since the visitors are unbeaten in last three league games, we do fancy the draw or away win double chance at the odds of 1.70.
Augsburg vs Mainz 05: Bet Tips
Augsburg Under 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.57
Mainz 05 or Draw Double Chance @ 1.70
