Football expert betting tips for Mainz 05 – Augsburg

Mainz 05 hosts Augsburg at the Opel Arena in a game from the 31th round of the Bundesliga. These are our football expert betting tips for this fixture which is really important for both sides.


Mainz 05 made a huge step in right direction last week when they recorded their 9th win for the season. Achim Beierlorzer’s team faced Eintracht in Frankfurt and achieved a crucial 2-0 win. These three points allowed Mainz 05 to be on three points ahead of the 16th Fortuna Dusseldorf at the moment.


Moussa Niakhate opened the score for Mainz, while the substitute Pierre Kunde Malong scored the second one after an assist from Karim Onisiwo. It was a near perfect game for Mainz away from home. That’s the kind of performance which would keep their place in the elite.


The goalkeeper Robin Zentner remains sidelined for Mainz 05. Once again the 22-years old Florian Muller will replace him under the bar.


Augsburg also need points in order to secure its survival. The club is currently 13th in the league with 32 points, but just 4 points ahead of the 16th Fortuna Dusseldorf. At the same time Augsburg are just one point ahead of their next opponent.


Last week Augsburg made their 8th draw for the season. Heiko Herrlich’s team hosted Koln, but the match at the WWK Arena ended with a 1-1 draw. It was Philipp Max who scored the equalising goal for the hosts.


Augsburg are having much more problems when it comes to injured players than Mainz. Baier, Hahn, Giefer, Iago and Cordova are all unavaliable.


That’s the football expert betting tips for the Bundesliga game between Mainz 05 and Augsburg. Both teams are chasing the same goal – survival, so we expect to see two really motivated sides here.
