Mainz 05 welcome Augsburg to the Opel Arena after having recently lost their brilliant home record over this opponent. Mainz 05 and Augsburg are both unbeaten after two games into the campaign and both teams have picked up four points from these two games. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Mainz 05 were happy to come away with a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Nuremberg, as Sandro Schwarz’ men were far from impressive. Their last match at the Opel Arena did produce a strong wind.
Augsburg were held to a 1-1 draw by Borussia Mönchengladbach in the last Bundesliga 18-19 game, but the team has functioned well in the first two games of the campaign.
The recent game between these two teams took place at the WWK Arena with Augsburg managing a comfortable 2-0 win. The last meeting at the Opel Arena produced a 3-1 victory – once again in favour of Augsburg. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Augsburg.

Mainz 05 may be at home and with a price of 2.50 to win the encounter, but they are not our pick. The second-half performance from Sandro Schwarz’ men against Nuremberg was especially poor and it is difficult to back the team on the back of such a performance – even if they are playing at home. Augsburg, meanwhile, could have come away from the home game against Mönchengladbach with a victory and it would have made it back-to-back wins for Manuel Baum’s men. After having recently broken their long wait for a victory at the Opel Arena, our preview would choose a win for Augsburg.

Mainz 05 vs Augsburg draw odds: 3.25
Mainz 05 win odds: 2.50
Correct Score odds
The first two matches of the campaign have shown that both Mainz 05 and Augsburg have decent scoring potential, while also having the defensive gaps that allow opposition with opportunities to score. There have been just two clean sheets in the last six meetings between Mainz 05 and Augsburg. Our correct score prediction would choose a 2-1 win for Augsburg.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
After watching new summer signing Ujah get off the mark in strong fashion, Mainz 05 have reasons to be confident about scoring at least once in the match. In fact, their last five home games against Augsburg have yielded 12 goals. The form of players like Gregoritsch makes Augsburg a good candidate to score. Thus, our total goals prediction would stick with over 2.5 goals in total.

First Goalscorer odds
Michael Gregoritsch was able to open the scoring against Mainz 05 in both games during the 2017-18 campaign and he is off the mark for the season after the goal against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The 24-year-old’s fine finish before the international break shows that he is ready for another fine campaign with Augsburg. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Gregoritsch.
