Since Svensson was hired as head coach in January 2021, Mainz’s performance has significantly improved after several seasons of being on the verge of relegation.
During his first few months in charge, the former Denmark international, who also played 109 league games for Mainz as a player, brilliantly led Die Nullfunfer away from the relegation zone. Last season, when they finished eighth, they achieved their highest finish since the 2015–16 season.
On the strength of their 2-1 victory over VfL Bochum last weekend, Mainz can stop stressing about finishing outside the top half of the table and instead concentrate on securing another top-half finish. Following Kevin Stoger’s equalizer against his previous team, Karim Onisiwo’s two outstanding headers on either side of halftime gave his team a hard-fought victory.
The 4-0 thrashing Augsburg suffered at the hands of Freiburg last weekend won’t have alleviated fans’ worries that this season might also be a long and challenging one. Fuggerstadter, who had never before played in Germany’s top division before being promoted in 2011, have outperformed their weight to contend in the Bundesliga for 12 straight seasons.
Enrico Maaßen, 38, was hired by the squad this summer from his position as manager of Dortmund’s reserve team in the hopes that he will enhance the team’s playing approach, with success following organically after a transitional time.
But if their second-half collapse against Freiburg at home last weekend is any indication, that phase might last for a long time. With two set-piece goals and target man Michael Gregoritsch’s thunderous header dealing substantial damage before Ritsu Doan’s late goal added gloss to their overwhelming victory, Christian Streich’s more direct style clearly ruffled their opponents’ feathers.
Even if another loss is likely to occur this weekend in Mainz, Maaßen will require far better performance from his team.
FC Augsburg vs FSV Mainz 05 Team News
- FC Augsburg
Niklas Dorsch (foot), Lukas Petkov (ankle), Ruben Vargas (muscle), Joel Sarenren Bazee, Reece Oxford, and Tobias Strobl (all knee) are among the Augsburg players who are questionable to travel due to injury. Given his limited alternatives and his team’s lopsided loss, Maaßen might surprise some by making only minor adjustments to his starting XI.
The one exception would be switching Andre Hahn for Florian Niederlechner in attack to offer a more direct option since the visitors are expected to have extended periods without possession.
- FSV Mainz 05
For the visit of FC Augsburg, Silvan Widmer, the club captain, should give Mainz a boost. The wing-back could take Edmilson Fernandes’ place in the starting lineup from the previous weekend.
Without Jonathan Burkardt, who led the team with 11 league goals last season, out for at least another week with a muscular issue, Svensson is unlikely to alter a successful recipe.
