FC Augsburg vs. FSV Mainz
Sunday, February 10th 2013, 15:30 CET
This Sunday, the German football teams FC Augsburg and Mainz are going to meet again at Bundesliga. Last time they met was on the 22nd of September, when Mainz managed a nice 2-0 victory in front of their rivals. The players who brought FSV Mainz the victory on 22nd were Andreas Ivanschitz, who scored the first goal within just 10 minutes after the start of the game, and Adam Szalai, who added the second goal in the 25th minute.
However, the statistics reveal a series of extremely balanced results between these two teams. For example, on the 17th of March 2012, FC Augsburg were the ones who defeated FSV Mainz also with a final score of 2-1. Another victory achieved by Augsburg against Mainz was on the 15th of October 2011, when the score was 1-0. So, judging by the last five head-to-head confrontations between these two teams, we’ll notice a perfect balance: 2 victories for Mainz, 2 for Augsburg and one 1-1 draw.
On the other hand, judging by the results achieved by each team in the last 5 matches, there is a considerable difference between them. While FSV Mainz has 3 victories over Greuther Fürth, FC Schalke and VfB Stuttgart, one goalless draw in the match with SC Freiburg and only one lost match in front of FC Bayern München, FC Augsburg has managed only one victory in the last five matches(a 3-2 victory against Fortuna Düsseldorf). The other four consisted in 3 draws and one defeat.
All in all, even if the results of the head-to-head matches between the German teams would suggest a very tight match, Mainz’s latest performances are far more admirable than FC Augsburg’s. So I am going to place a bet on Mainz’s victory. I bet 5 units at 2.84. The odds I used are from IBCBET.
