• Augsburg have claimed an average of 1.75 points per game against Mainz in the Bundesliga (the same as against HSV) – the only current top-flight side they have a better average against is Hertha (2.00).
  • Mainz have won just one of their seven competitive games in Augsburg (D3, L3) – a 2-0 second-division victory in September 2008.
  • Augsburg have picked up the fewest points of all Bundesliga sides in the last five games (1). It’s FCA’s longest winless streak since the autumn of 2012 (10 games without a win between October and December).
  • Augsburg have opened the scoring in their last five Bundesliga matches. FCA have let the most points slip from winning positions (14) and have lost the most games after taking the lead (4). Mainz are in second with nine points dropped and three defeats after going in front.
  • Augsburg scored for the eighth Bundesliga game in a row on the last matchday against Leverkusen, setting a new club record in the top flight.
  • Mainz have won just one of their last 11 Bundesliga away games (D5, L5) – a 2-1 victory in Freiburg on matchday 2. Their last three away matches have ended in defeat, despite them opening the scoring each time.
  • Goals guaranteed: FSV have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight away games, while FCA have conceded in each of their last six home fixtures.
  • Thomas Tuchel played in Augsburg’s youth team from 1988 to 1992 and was the youth manager there between 2005 and 2008. He could now win his 200th point as a Bundesliga manager in the match against his former club (he currently has 199).
  • Bookings galore: Jan Moravek is suspended after picking up five yellow cards. Augsburg players have been responsible for three of the five yellow-card suspensions so far this season. Only Hannover (28) have collected more bookings than FCA (25).
  • Andre Hahn has attempted the most tackles in the league (267) and has won 44% of them. However, no other player has committed as many fouls as Hahn (30).
