Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After failing to win the previous four league matches, Mainz will look to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they take on Augsburg on Saturday afternoon. The Nullfunfer find themselves mired in the relegation zone with only 12 points to their name. Nonetheless, this presents a prime opportunity for the hosts to get back on course. All Phillipp Mwene, Karim Onisiwo, Stefan Bell, and Nelson Weiper are sidelined with injuries, while Silvan Widmer is a major doubt.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league fixtures, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Mainz this time out. Midfielder Dion Beljo is sidelined with injury, while defender Reece Oxford should miss out through illness (COVID-19). Last time out Mainz defeated Augsburg 3-1 at Mewa Arena and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Dominik Kohr):
Dominik Kohr is a product of Bayer Leverkusen’s youth school. The German midfielder was born in Tier on 31 January, 1994 and he made eight appearances for the Bundesliga side at senior level. He spent the 2014/2015 season on loan at Augsburg, playing 34 games for the club in the German elite division and his loan was made permanent at the end of the season (18 June, 2015).
He scored his first goal for the club from the penalty spot in a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg. Kohr has four caps for Germany U20 and he played for the U18 and the U19 teams in the past as well. Dominik Kohr is a central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder and a centre back as well.
He has a contract with Augsburg which expires on 30 June, 2019. Kohr played 26 games for Augsburg in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign.
Highlighted Team (Augsburg):
Augsburg are a German football club founded in Augsburg, Bavaria back in 1907. Die Fuggerstadter play in German Bundesliga and with 12,200 members they are regarded as the largest football club in Bavaria. Augsburg wear white shirts and they host their rivals at WWK ARENA.
The capacity of the stadium is 30,660 and it has been the home of Augsburg since 2009. Augsburg won the Schwaben Cup 13 times and it has to be noted that they were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2011.
The club qualified for the Europa League 2015/2016 group stages and thanks to a 3-1 win over Partizan in Belgrade they booked their place in the last 32. However, Liverpool proved to be a big catch for the German outfit in the Europa League knockout stages.
Die Fuggerstadter’s main rivals are TSV 1860 Munich and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other.
