Mainz 05 and Augsburg meet at Coface Arena, in a match for the 14th round of the Bundesliga. The history of direct confrontations disputed in this stadium is favorable to the home team, which in the last 4 matches won 4. Indeed, the last time these two teams played a match in this stadium, on 10-02-2017, for the Bundesliga, Mainz 05 won by (2-0). L. Öztunali (31 ‘) and Jairo Samperio (62′) scored the goals for Mainz 05. The home / away condition deserves special attention, because despite this being a match between 12th and 8th of the league table, in fact it is a confrontation between the 5º classified in parties in house and the 9º as visitor.
After 4 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, the home team is currently in the 12 th position, with 15 points won. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Freiburg by (2-1), after in the previous match they have won (1-0) at home, against Köln. This is a stronger team in his home stadium, where he has won 13 points, against only 2 in his away matches. For the league, Mainz 05 won 13 points out of 21 possible points, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the last 7 home matches.
For this competition, they have not lost any of the last 4 home matches. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 13 matches in the competition, they suffered the first goal 8 times and only managed 1 comeback.
Mainz is making a somewhat unsatisfactory German championship, winning only 1 of the last 5 matches and needs a recovery, as it falls in the qualifying table and is dangerously close to the relegation zone. The team is characterized by a somewhat inefficient attack, which scored 14 goals and is the sixth worst in the national championship, while the defense suffered 19 goals and is the sixth worst, showing that it is necessary to adjust both the offensive system and the defensive to distance himself from the last positions. Playing at home, like this Saturday’s game, Mainz has the fifth best Bundesliga campaign, suffered only 1 goal in the last 2 home matches and in the last 3 matches in this condition there were at most 2 goals on the scoreboard final. For the game against Augsburg, coach Sandro Schwarz has no problems in the team considered as a starter and must repeat the starting lineup of the last few days.
After 5 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses, the away team is currently in the 8 th position, with 19 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Bayern München, by (3-0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Wolfsburg, by (2-1). This is a team little affected by the house factor, since it conquered similar results at home and abroad. In the last 6 away league matches Augsburg has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 18 possible. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 13 matches in this competition, they have only 1 comeback in the 6 matches they have conceded the first goal. In the last 8 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (76’-90 ‘).
Augsburg are campaigning more than expected in the Bundesliga, coming from a good victory in their stadium and want to maintain the good phase to try to get closer to the qualifying zone for European competitions next season. The team is characterized by a medium attack, which scored 8 goals and is the eighth best of the national championship, but the great triumph has been his defense, which suffered only 15 goals and is the fourth best, although he has suffered goals in his last 3 matches. Augsburg lost only 1 of the last 5 matches they played, against the very strong Bayern Munich, and in general it is usually a difficult team to face in this type of situation. For the game against Mainz, coach Manuel Baum has no problems in his initial and goes to the field in maximum strength.
