Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 20 August 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
Mainz had missed out on qualifying for one of the European competitions the last season by a whisker. And this seems to have left a mark on them as they have started this new campaign on a positive note. Meanwhile Augsburg had finished just above the relegation cut-off the previous season in the German top flight.
They had won just 10 times all through the last league season and at the end of the campaign they had a -17 goal difference. It also needs to be mentioned that they had a surplus of just 5 points over the relegation cut-off.
Lately they have been letting in goals huge numbers and have done so even in front of their home crowd.
Meanwhile, not only did Mainz deliver is superb campaign the last time around but they also have started this new season on a great note. They are finding the back of the net in plenty and they have managed to deliver some good performances in their away matches as well.
Judging recent performances, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Mainz away from home this Saturday.
