Date: Saturday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET

Augsburg have been at the losing end just twice on home soil so far. With Mainz deprived of a win in each of their past three visits here as well, the hosts are certainly in contention to secure all three points this weekend.

Augsburg vs Mainz Prediction
Augsburg extended their unbeaten streak to three matches after the hosts played out a 1-1 draw alongside FC Koln on the road.
In all honesty, though, the hosts were much the better side in that latter matchup. And would have come away with all three points too, had Andre Hahn not been denied from the penalty spot.
Nevertheless, the home side have climbed out of the relegation zone and are currently fourteenth on the ladder.
Meanwhile, Mainz have been recording back to back wins in their last two clashes. Their previous clash at home saw them take down Eintracht Frankfurt with a 2-1 scorecard. While on the road, they pulled off their biggest victory yet, a 5-1 win over Hoffenheim.
Be that as it may, Mainz have just two wins from their last seven outings and have garnered no more than six points from a possible twenty-one. It is also worth mentioning that Mainz have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous three visits to WWK Arena either.
As such, given the home advantage and the solid form that the hosts are on, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Augsburg in this one.
However, the hosts have been forced to settle for no more than a point twice already at home. Taking into account that Mainz are also starting to show promise in their recent matchups, the safest punt would be backing a Draw No Bet.
Furthermore, Augsburg have been a real threat in the attacking third and have scored eight goals from their last three games here alone. On the other hand, Mainz ran riot in their last outing and found the back of the net five times by the end of the ninety minutes.
With four of their last five matchups also turning into high scoring affairs, expect over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, by all means, come Saturday.
