Mainz Prediction – Can Mainz pull themselves out of trouble?

A 1-0 defeat away at Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend saw Mainz stumble to a third defeat in four matches in the Bundesliga and this has left Friday night’s hosts in the relegation zone ahead of this crucial upcoming clash with fellow strugglers, Cologne.

Previous defeats to Schalke 04 and Wolfsburg were tempered by a 2-1 win away at Paderborn, but wins have been hard to come by for Mainz so far in this season’s German top flight as they’ve collected just 2 victories out of their first 8 matches of this new campaign.

The other win came in the shape of a 2-1 home win over mid-table outfit, Hertha Berlin, but although the victories have been thin on the ground, there are still opportunities for betting angles in this clash with Cologne.

5 of Mainz’s 8 matches overall this term have seen both teams score while at the Opel Arena, 11 of Mainz’s last 15 matches have produced results where both teams have scored, and this Friday may well extend this trend with both teams eager to collect the valuable 3 points on offer.

Cologne Prediction – Can Cologne keep their heads above water?

A resounding 3-0 home win against Paderborn at their RheinEnergieStadion was just what the doctor ordered for struggling Cologne as the visitors ended a 4-match sequence without a win in the Bundesliga.

Defeats to Borussia Moenchengladbach, Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin were followed by a 1-1 draw away at Schalke which produced just 1 point for Cologne’s troubles and resulted in them dropping down the table and dangerously close to the relegation zone.

The win against Paderborn has lifted them to just one league position above the relegation zone though, and they’ll head over to Mainz for this Friday night clash in better spirits as they look to collect another valuable 3 points in their quest to put some daylight between themselves and the basement of the Bundesliga.

However, Cologne have also registered just 2 league wins to date in the German top flight, but fear not, they too have been involved in plenty of matches which have witnessed goals for both sides – indeed, 10 of Cologne’s last 15 matches away from home have seen both teams score.


Key-Facts – Mainz vs Cologne

  • 11 of Mainz’s last 15 home matches have seen both teams score
  • 10 of Cologne’s last 15 matches away from home have seen both teams score
  • The last encounter between these two teams ended in a 1-1 draw


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams will be desperate to collect the maximum points here so we could see both score as a result.
