FSV Mainz 05 vs FC Augsburg: The most important match for both teams
There are only four rounds left until the end of the Bundesliga. If it weren’t for the corona virus pandemic, we would already have the final outcome. Still, this way we will have to wait a few more rounds. While it is practically obvious who will win the title, the things are a bit different when it comes to the relegation zone.
This is one of the most important matches for survival in the championship. Neither of these two teams have secured football in the Bundesliga next season, although they are not in the relegation zone at the moment. That situation could easily change, especially for the team that is defeated in this match.
Their previous trials show that both teams have a right to hope in this round.

Although both teams need points we are pretty sure that Mainz will win this match. They have a better team, although they will not have much needed support from their fans.
Besides we are convinced that Mainz will win, we still think that we cannot expect more than two goals to be scored.
