After a corona outbreak at FSV Mainz 05, the home game of FC Augsburg will be postponed. Then there are differences. Now the game is rescheduled. Does it get particularly emotional on the pitch?

Augsburg – There was Zoff. But all the trouble should be forgotten. FC Augsburg welcomes FSV Mainz 05 to the catch-up game of the 26th matchday in the Bundesliga today (6.30 p.m. / Sky).

Why was the game postponed?

The people of Mainz had 20 corona cases in March and then obtained a transfer. The postponement caused trouble between the two clubs. Among other things, the people of Augsburg complained about the inadequate information policy of the FSV from their point of view. That was all “old news”, said Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl. “We live in the now.” When asked whether things would get particularly emotional on the pitch because of the differences at the time, Mainz coach Bo Svensson replied: “Not from our side.”

How is the situation at FC Augsburg?

Still tense. The lead on relegation place 16 is only three points. After the threesome against VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday, the next home win would provide a lot of relaxation in Augsburg. “We’re currently three points ahead of the relegation place, but that should be six after the game,” announced coach Markus Weinzierl. Ruben Vargas (tonsillitis) and Michael Gregoritsch (corona infection) could return on the offensive. “You have to see if they are fit enough,” said Weinzierl to the duo.

What about Mainz 05?

With 38 points, the Mainzers don’t have to worry about another Bundesliga year. Maybe they can even move towards international starting places. “Our main focus is totally on the performance, because that increases the chance of results. There is no point goal, but we want to win both games,” said coach Bo Svensson with a view to the away double pack FC Augsburg and 1. FC Köln. He has no personal worries. In addition, midfielder Dominik Kohr returns after a yellow card suspension.
