Mainz vs Augsburg Prediction & Match Preview

Mainz vs Augsburg Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on 14 June 2020, Sunday. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Opel Arena.

Both teams are trying desperately to avoid getting the boot. With just four match-days remaining for the season to come to an end, the teams are hanging by a thread over the cut-off. Expectedly, either team will be forced to go after the three points, and coupled with their leaky defenses, we can count on a goal-fest to take place this Sunday.

Mainz vs Augsburg Prediction

The 05ers recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. In what was a must-win game for the visitors, they tried from the beginning to go after the three points.

It took them some effort, but they did finally manage to slot in their first goal, just before the half-time break. Later, they added one more goal towards the end of the fixture, to ensure the victory.

In the meantime, Heiko Herrlich’s men registered a 1-1 draw the past game week, against Koln. The hosts missed a golden chance to take the lead and dominate proceedings, but they missed the penalty that was awarded for them.

Towards the end of the match-up, the visitors scored the first goal of the game, in the 85th minute to be precise. The fixture seemed to be lost for the hosts, but they managed to equalize the scored two minutes from final whistle.

As things stand, we can surely expect a match-up filled with goals. The 05 ers had lost seven of their previous ten home games, and had conceded two or more goals in five of the past ten appearances here. 

On the other hand, their counterparts had lost six of their preceding seven road trips, and had conceded two or more goals in seven of their previous eight road fixtures. 

On top of that, 11 of the last 14 overall h2h clashes, and five of the prior six such encounters at this venue had three or more goals. Considering all these stats, it’s more than evident that we are in line to witness a lot of goals this Sunday.
