Best bets in Germany

Schalke should be celebrating again

BT Sport 1 from 2.30pm, Sunday

Augsburg v Mainz BT Sport 1, 2.30pm
Mainz climbed out of the relegation playoff place with a VAR-assisted 2-0 win at home to fellow strugglers Freiburg on Monday and can give their survival hopes another boost by winning at Augsburg.

Survival is virtually assured for Augsburg but they have gone off the boil in recent times – winning once in nine games – and look vulnerable against a hungrier opponent.

Dan Childs's recommendation
1pt 5-4 general

Key stat
Augsburg have lost their last four home fixtures.

Cologne v Schalke BT Sport 1, 5pm
Schalke strengthened their hold on second place in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund last time out and the trip to bottom club Cologne holds few fears.

The visitors suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat at struggling Hamburg in their last away game but before that they had won three on the spin on the road and Cologne have shipped 15 goals in their last six.

James Milton's recommendation
Schalke to win 2-0
1pt 9-1 general

Key stat
Schalke have won four of their last six away matches to nil.
