THE PREDICTION

Mainz are still second from bottom but they are certainly not going down without a fight. Bo Svensson’s men pulled off another impressive win at Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, making it 10 points gained from the last 15 available and taking them to within one point of safety. Augsburg were denied what would have been a first victory in four by a stoppage-time equaliser at home to Bayer Leverkusen last time out. The Bavarians have won their last four encounters with Mainz but are currently on a three-game losing streak away from home. With the 05ers in their best form of the campaign and in greater need of the points, they look appealing for the win here, but they do not keep many clean sheets and Augsburg have only failed to score in one of their last eight away matches, so consider adding Both Teams To Score to your betting slip.
