Werder Bremen vs Mainz Live Stats & Betting Odds

Werder Bremen Prediction – Can Werder Bremen avoid third defeat on trot?

In fact, Tuesday night’s hosts, Werder Bremen, have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in the German top flight which includes defeats to Borussia Moenchengladbach and Schalke as well as recent back-to-back losses against Paderborn and Bayern Munich – the latter resulting in a heavy 6-1 thrashing away from home on Saturday.

This recent spate of defeats have meant that Werder Bremen have dropped down to 15th place in the Bundesliga and now sit just one position and 2 points above third from bottom side, Fortuna Dusseldorf who occupy the relegation play-off spot.

A recent 3-2 win away from home at Wolfsburg provided Werder Bremen with some respite but form on home turf at their wohninvest WESERSTADION has been poor so far in this campaign for the hosts.

An overall home record of 1-2-4 8/14 includes failing to win any of their last 5 matches at home, so backing them for a win here would seem highly risky. Instead, goals look the way to go as 5 of Werder Bremen’s 7 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Mainz Prediction – Can Mainz bounce back?

Mainz have also suffered recent back-to-back defeats in the German top flight as the visitors have been handed losses by Augsburg 2-1 and a heavy 4-0 rout by Borussia Dortmund at home, so confidence isn’t likely to be in abundance for Mainz either as they prepare for this upcoming relegation battle with Werder Bremen.

Indeed, Mainz have lost 4 of their last 6 matches overall in the Bundesliga and these string of defeats has left the visitors just one league position and 1 point above their Tuesday night’s hosts, Werder Bremen, so all three points will be a precious commodity for both teams here.

In addition, having lost 3 of their last 4 matches on their travels too, it may be best to avoid backing Mainz who possess a poor away record of 2-0-6 10/24, but they have been involved in some high-scoring matches this term.

7 of Mainz’s 8 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals which include heavy defeats at Freiburg 3-0, Bayern Munich 6-1 and RB Leipzig 8-0 but Mainz have also posted a 5-1 defeat upon Hoffenheim on the road as well.

 

Key-Facts – Werder Bremen vs Mainz

  • 5 of Werder Bremen’s 7 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored
  • 7 of Mainz’s 8 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides have resulted in over 2.5 goals

 

Betting Tips Verdict

With neither side in any sort of form, we should see a few goals in this clash as neither side can keep clean sheets.
