      Mainz vs Borussia Monchengladbach Predictions

      Mainz suffered defeat last weekend when Bundesliga action returned after the winter break. Ingolstadt triumphed thanks to a first half penalty in an otherwise lifeless and dull match.

      This is not the return to competitive football that Mainz were hoping for, and it follows on from their loss to Hertha Berlin just before the winter break, a result which ended their six match unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga.

      But their record of three wins, three draws, and two defeats in their last eight Bundesliga matches is a decent return and leaves them in 8th position. They are only three points outside the Europa League qualification position.

      Borussia Monchengladbach are themselves pushing for a Champions League qualification position. They are in 4th position with four points between them and 3rd placed Hertha Berlin. Bayer Leverkusen are only a point behind them though.

      But the 3rd place finishers from last season find themselves in a spot of poor form at the moment. They emerged from the winter break with a 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund, a result which made it four defeats and one win in their last five competitive matches.

      To be fair to Borussia Monchengladbach, they have had to face some really good sides during this period, with Manchester City, Bayer Leverkusen, and Borussia Dortmund all beating them.

      Monchengladbach have won four of their last eight matches on the road, with two defeats and two draws making up the rest of the results. But European away nights are even more difficult, and if you just take into account domestic results they have won three of their last five and only lost once.

      Mainz have lost three, won two, and drawn one of their last six home games in the Bundesliga, with losses to Bayern Munich, Werder Bremen, and Borussia Dortmund indicating that they find it difficult against the top sides in the Bundesliga.

      This makes me think they will struggle against Monchengladbach as well, so odds of 1.850 for a Borussia Monchengladbach 0.0 Asian Handicap Win look good value to me, and I’m also going for a 2-1 correct score prediction at 17/2.
