There is some rare midweek action in the Bundesliga to look forward to this week. Augsburg will be hoping to win a third game in four when they host Mainz, who come into this fixture after going two without defeat.
Mainz will be looking for an important win in the Bundesliga this week, as they hope to keep alive their chances of finishing in a European place in the German top-flight. They will be on the road on Wednesday, as they look to maintain their decent recent run of results, which has seen them go two without defeat in Germany.
Mainz are currently six points off the pace in the race for Europa League positions in the Bundesliga, but they have been in better form than many of their rivals since the international break. They have won once and drew once in their previous two games.
Their draw came in the most recent fixture, as they were held by Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday. Karim Onisiwo scored the equalising goal in that fixture, as he struck the leveller with just 17 minutes remaining.
Augsburg will still be looking over their shoulders at this stage of the season, as their safety in the Bundesliga is still far from assured. They are currently sitting in 14th place in the league standings, and just three clear of the automatic drop zone.
However, their recent form has been much better, as they have lost just once in their previous four games. During the same run of games, they have picked up two victories, which includes their most recent success against Wolfsburg last weekend. Florian Niederlechner and Mads Pedersen scored goals in the second half of the game, while Iago opened the scoring after just a minute in the fixture.
Augsburg vs Mainz Head to Head
Mainz picked up an extremely rare victory against Augsburg earlier in the season, as they won 4-1 in October. That victory ended a five-game winning streak for Augsburg in the Bundesliga. However, the hosts have won their previous three home fixtures against Mainz coming into this midweek showdown.
Augsburg vs Mainz Prediction
Both sides have been in decent form over recent weeks, but they are very close to separate coming into this fixture. However, we give the slight preference to Augsburg, who have a very good home record in this fixture and will be confident after a win in their last fixture.
