Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Mainz have seen their two-match winning streak earned since the winter break ended by Augsburg (3-0), as Alfred Finnbogason netted a hat-trick at WWK Arena on Sunday and Peter Bosz’s men failed to build on thriller wins over Stuttgart (2-3) and Nurnberg (2-1).
Die Nullfunfer have been scoring numbers of goals on the regular beforehand and bouncing back to such a streak in the final third will be essential for Sandro Schwarz. They’ve been a very tough side to beat at OPEL Arena and we should see them very motivated to bounce back quickly in their top 6 chase.
This will be the third out in just six days for Bayer Leverkusen and they come into the busy week on the back of a great 3-1 win over Bayern Munich, where they completed a great comeback with goals from Bailey, Volland, and Alario.
Leverkusen have thus built on a high-scoring win over Wolfsburg (0-3) and the attacking line led by in-form Kevin Volland has been doing their bit, which should have them very motivated to cause an upset in Mainz as well. The visitors can’t really boast great consistency on the road through the campaign, though, and this could be more worrying.
We will now stick our necks out for Mainz to show off as a tough side to beat in front of the home fans once again, as we stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 31/10 with BetVictor.
We have seen both outfits netting and conceding goals lately and this promises another exciting occasion on the day, which has us going for a Yes on Both teams to score as more of a banker bet at 4/7 with Betway. Mainz have seen such occasions in six of their last seven league outings and holding off the rivals could be based on such an approach again.
