Venue: Coface Arena

 

Only an even steven finish will settle the upcoming clash between Mainz 05 and Augsburg. Both clubs are trying to generate a good response from their lackluster performances, which prevented them from improving their rank in the Bundesliga table.

 

Mainz and Augsburg have been trying to outlast each other in the rankings. Armed with equal strength and aggressiveness, the two are often found stuck in the 7th and 8th spot.

 

Mainz just had a humiliating loss to the minnow Braunschweig. Much to the surprise of many, the club wasted the opportunity to enter the league’s top 5, while the rock bottom squad received the confidence boost that they truly need.  The result of the said match also marked their second straight loss within their last 6 matches.
Christian Heidel and his men tend to manifest problems in its defensive zone. They need to address this immediately since their last 3 matches have already witnessed them concede at least 2 goals and the very last thing that they want to happen is to have Augsburg exploit the said situation.

 

Augsburg boasts a strong performance outside their territory. As a matter of fact, it has been successful in its last 8 away matches and their upcoming match literally puts them in a situation where they have the outright advantage.

 

But they cannot be overconfident. Their team form is not too far from what Mainz has. Both of them share 2 losses, wins and defeats, which, technically, lessen the possibility of having one club dominate the other.

 

Prediction: Stalemate

Armed with almost the same skill set and enthusiasm, a stalemate between the top picks of sports betting sites, presents a profitable value. In 12BET, going for a 3.15 draw can yield a decent amount into anyone’s bankroll.
