Four games without a win, Mainz will be looking to turn back to their form when they host Augsburg at the Coface Arena in the 20th round of the German Bundesliga.
The Hosts To Bounce Back
The home side haven’t been in their best form in recent weeks in the Bundesliga. The team have failed to win in any of their last four league games. Mainz have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Hoffenheim away from home where they lost 4-0.
Mainz are currently sitting in the 13th place in the league table. They have 22 points from 6 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. The team scored 27 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Niko Bungert is a doubt with a neck injury and could be replaced by Leon Balogun. Gaetan Bussmann and Daniel Brosinski compete for the spot at left-back.
Good Form For The Visitors
On the contrary from the hosts, the visitors have been on top of their game lately. They have lost only one game in their last five league games and they are looking stronger as the season goes by. Augsburg have collected a total of 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Werder Bremen at home where they won 3-2.
Augsburg are currently sitting in the 10th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 18 goals and conceded 22 since the start of the season.
Daniel Baier should return from injury to replace the suspended Dominik Kohr in defensive midfield. With Ja-Cheol Koo now injured as well, Gojko Kacar could get a chance from the start as well, with new signing Moritz Leitner providing another alternative on the bench.
Head To Head
Mainz have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 3-1 to Mainz away from home.
