Bundesliga Matchday 26 Betting Tips – FFC Augsburg

Augsburg has picked up 7 points from its last 5 fixtures but injuries might force manager Markus Wienzierl to stick with the 3-5-2 formation from last week.

Scoring enough goals is a perennial problem for Augsburg with the club averaging just over 1 goal per game this season. Alfred Finnbogason is still on the injury-table therefore Michael Gregoritsch remains the main striking-option up front with support from the likes of André Hahn and Ruben Vargas from midfield along with Iago and Daniel Caligiuri on the wings.

According to our Bundesliga betting tips team While Augsburg relies heavily on defending, it has not really done a good job of it with an average of over 1.5 goals conceded per game on home-turf. The injury to Robert Gumny might leave the team operating with a 3-man defence comprising Reece oxford, Niklas Dorsch and Jeffrey Gouweleeuw with Arne Maier and Carlos Gruezo as the two holding-midfielders.

Bundesliga Matchday 26 Betting Tips – FSV Mainz 05

Mainz does not have any major injury concerns at the moment, yet it has not been able to move up the standings due to its wretched away-form.

Bo Svensson will probably line up his team in the 3-4-2-1 system that he has preferred lately. Mainz owns the 4th best defensive-record in the Bundesliga, although that ranking drops to 11th spot away from home. Alexander Hack will be absent after picking up his 5th yellow-card so Leandro Martins is likely to feature alongside Stefan Bell and Moussa Niakhaté in the 3-man backline.

As usual, Mainz has endured some dry periods in front of goal, especially on its travels, with the club averaging less than 1.5 goals per game this season. Karim Onisiwo is likely to start as the centre-forward with Jonathan Burkardt and Lee Jae-Sung as the two supporting strikers. Silvan Widmer will line up in his regular spot on the right-wing with Aarón Martín on the opposite flank.
