Prediction

  • Augsburg have gained a league best 17 points from losing positions, fighting back on nine separate occasions, including last weekend's battling 2-2 draw with Leipzig.
  • Mainz have scored only 15 goals with just a solitary win all season and nine draws preventing any upward trajectory.
  • FCA have failed to keep a clean sheet in 24 games, but while often struggling towards the bottom, have never been relegated.
  • Mainz have fired two managers this season with Jan Siewert the latest to pay the price and Dane Bo Henriksen takes over a side languishing one off the bottom without a win in 11 games.
  • Augsburg won the reverse fixture 2-1, but Mainz are fighting for their lives and can grab the three points with goals at both ends.
