TSG Hoffenheim v FC Augsburg - Bundesliga
TSG Hoffenheim will host Mainz on Saturday - Bundesliga

Hoffenheim will host Mainz at the PreZero Arena on Saturday afternoon in the sixth gameweek of the German Bundesliga.

The hosts have had mixed results in the league this season. They saw their good run of form come to an end last time out - getting beaten 1-0 by Borussia Dortmund - and were fortunate not to have lost by a larger margin.

Hoffenheim have picked up nine points from five games and sit seventh in the Bundesliga standings. They will now look to shake off their latest result and get their campaign back on track this weekend.

Mainz, meanwhile, have enjoyed a solid start to their campaign and will fancy their status as early title contenders. They returned to winning ways last week with a 1-0 away win over Borussia Monchengladbach, with Aaron Martin Caricol scoring the only goal of the game.

The visitors sit fifth in the league table just one point above their weekend opponents and will be looking to widen that gap on Saturday.

Hoffenheim's latest result ended a three-game winning streak, and they will look to bounce back here. They have won their two games at the PreZero Arena this season and will hope to maximise their home advantage against Mainz.

The visitors, meanwhile, have lost just one of their six games across competitions this season. They have won their last four on the road but may have to settle for a point on Saturday.
