Konstantinos Stafylidis' equaliser gave Augsburg hope of at least a point against 1. FSV Mainz 05, but two quick goals saw Die Függerstädter slip to a second defeat of the season at their own WWK ARENA. A run of four unbeaten games away from home, stretching back into last season, bodes well for Dirk Schuster's outfit.
