Football Betting Tips Augsburg vs Mainz
Making a good campaign in an era where maintenance is the priority the Augsburg side are 12 points behind the Bundesliga’s 9th place at the moment with the most balanced record of three wins, three draws and three defeats, with 16 goals scored and 14 conceded. Following Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Hannover 96, Augsburg are looking to follow up on what started in August, with a 2-1 win over Steinbach in the first round of the Cup, a competition where a year ago the team did not go beyond that first round, where they were dismissed by a lower team.
Mainz 05 are performing slightly below their opponents on this tie, ranking 13th in the standings with just nine points, the result of two victories, three draws and four defeats, scoring just five goals and conceding 10 goals.
In the previous round, Mainz knocked out Erzgebirge Aue 3-1 at the start of a season different from the current time, as Schwarz’s team have already won six consecutive games, , last Saturday, strangely enough against Bayern (2-1 defeat), having a very uninteresting record to play away at this time.
Going through a better period of form and with the support of the supporters in their majority, I hope that the Augsburg gives a good answer in attacking terms in this second round of DFB Pokal, the German Cup where Mainz made a good performance last term and fell only in the quarter-finals against Eintracht Frankfurt, who would even clinch the trophy in the final against Bayern.

It is true that the team of Sandro Schwarz has not convinced this season and appears here at a time of complicated form.
However, this type of game has often precisely the condemnation of catapulting the teams to different times and I believe that Mainz will free themselves from the recent ghosts to seek to make a good game in this move and I think he’s going to try to exploit the fact that he faces an Augsburg that is oily but offensive, having kept its goal inviolable in only one of 10 games played this season.
Adding to that the fact that Mainz re-scored seven games later on Saturday, I do not think its players will be as hard pressed to realize the opportunities they have created.
