Mainz 6/5 to beat Augsburg in Sunday’s Bundesliga battle
Market: Mainz win
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Two sides enduring very different levels of success entering 2019, Mainz will travel to a struggling Augsburg on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with Sunday’s hosts, despite securing a mid-table finish in the Bundesliga last season, it has been a campaign riddled with issues for Augsburg. In their 19 league games this season, they have recorded just three wins, six draws and 10 defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 33 in return. With a points tally of 15, Augsburg currently sit just one point above the drop zone. As for their recent run of form, the hosts have lost their last three matches across all competitions and have failed to win any of their last nine outings.
As for the visitors, enjoying a resurge entering 2019, Mainz will be looking for a surprise European push in the second half of the season. In their 19 games this season, they have won seven, drawn six and lost six, scoring 22 and conceding 25 in return. Remarkably, no team outside of the top-four holds a better defensive record than Maiz. With a points tally of 27, another win on Sunday could see the visitors climb as high as sixth in the Bundesliga table. As for their recent run of form, Mainz have won their last two matches on the bounce and are unbeaten in their last four games.
