Both teams are in the relegation battle. One point can actually do good for both, especially Augsburg will be very likely to play for a draw away from home.
Both teams had a pretty rough restart after the COVID-19 break. Mainz had been smashed by Leipzig at home, while Augsburg had a bad loss in Berlin 2 weeks ago. However, both of them showed the urgency and extra motivation for avoiding relegation, with Mainz beating Frankfurt convincingly on the road while Augsburg outplayed Koln at home and was unlucky to get only a point. Coincidentally, the two opponents Frankfurt and Cologne are on exactly the same page, as both of them are 7 points above relegation while not much chance for European qualification spots. So it is understandably both Mainz and Frankfurt had good games last week. However, if we look back from 2 more weeks, Mainz had a deserved draw versus Union Berlin and a marginal defeat against Hoffenheim; Augsburg could only have a lucky point against Paderborn (xG 0.6-1.5) at home and was totally dominated by Hertha (xG 0.9-2.3) then. In my opinion, Mainz should be the marginally better team overall.
For team news, there are no significant outs for Mainz, while captain Baier is still doubtful for Augsburg. In conclusion, it is valuable to back Mainz DnB given Augsburg will likely be satisfied with a point. The price is even better for half-time Mainz +0 AH @1.763 at VIP-IBC.
