Mainz 05 vs. Werder Bremen Betting Tips
Werder Bremen travel to Mainz for their Matchday 21 clash in a poor form, having connected four losses in a row since the New Year, in an attempt to cause an upset and snatch any points at OPEL Arena. However, that will surely be a difficult task for the visitors as Mainz have just escaped the danger zone and will come into the match confident on the back of a 2-0 win over Augsburg last week, and we’ll rather go for a home win at 19/20 with William Hill.
The win over Augsburg made it a win and two draws at this ground in 2017, as Die Nullfunfer earned points holding Koln (0-0) and Borussia Dortmund (1-1) to draws in January. They have shown fine defensive displays, conceding just one goal in the process and their thrashing loss at Hoffenheim (4-0) doesn’t seem to have dented their confidence.
Bremen, on the other hand, lost all their four Bundesliga games this year with unconvincing performances against BVB, Bayern Munich, Augsburg, and most recently Borussia M’gladbach. We’ve seen them concede eight goals in the process, and four goals they’ve netted in the process just haven’t been enough to earn any points!
Nonetheless, Mainz will obviously need a fine attacking display to lock the points at home and we expect to see an exciting matchup, going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 8/11 with Ladbrokes
. A home win with a Yes on both teams to score comes at an appealing 13/5 with bet365
, which will also attract a few value seekers on the day.
Mainz 05 vs. Werder Bremen Stats
We have seen both sides find the net in four of their last five matchups, and we do expect a similar display here. While Bremen have earned four points in two last season’s head-to-head encounters to Mainz (with a 1-3 away win in October 2015 and a 1-1 home draw in March 2016), Die Nullfunfer have been better in their most recent clash earning a 1-2 win in September.
We’ll now back the same result, going for a 2-1 correct score prediction at 15/2 with BetVictor
, which could prove more than a lively longshot for those keeping the faith Mainz can join the mid-table over the rivals.
