Mainz vs Augsburg: prediction for the Bundesliga match
In the previous season Mainz barely avoided relegation from Bundesliga and in the new season Bo Svensson's team was considered an underdog once again. But at the start of the season The Carnival Club put up a number of impressive matches, especially the memorable victory over Leipzig (1:0).
But team failed to keep the winning form, eventually their performance declined and their fixture was not the easiest one recently. Mainz are currently at the 11th spot with 10 points in their asset, but team is not so far from the relegation zone, 16th placed Augsburg is only four points behind.
In the most recent match Mainz suffered a 1:3 defeat to Borussia Dortmund, it is the third defeat in a row.
In recent seasons Augsburg were always on the verge of relegation, but every time Fuggers managed to put up a winning streak at the end of the season, that's why team is still in Bundesliga. Markus Weinzierl's men are looking terrible in the start of the new season, which is qute predictable, team recorded only one victory in first eight matches.
Before the start of ninth round Augsburg are at the 16th spot, only one point ahead of Arminia, who are at the straight relegation zone. A victory in this match can help the Fuggers to rise up in the table, so there is no reason to panic now.
In the previous match Augsburg failed to beat Arminia - a 1:1 draw extended team's winless streak to three matches.

Mainz are playing offensively and they are unlikely to change the strategy this time, in the match against the underdog. Augsburg are not looking well on away games, Fuggers make many mistakes on defense, so Mainz should be able to record a confident victory.
Our second bet is on Mainz to win by two goals
