      Mainz vs Stuttgart Predictions

      Mainz have had an up and down sort of season so far. They began their season with three wins and two losses in the Bundesliga, and then embarked on a poor run of form that saw them win just once and lose five over a seven match period.

      They seem to have put that poor run behind them now though, and they come into this match on Friday looking to make it six games unbeaten. They have won three of their five matches in this spell so far.

      This has put them in a rather promising position in the Bundesliga table. They sit in 7th position and are only one point behind Schalke in the first of the Europa League positions. European qualification would represent a big step for Mainz considering their 11th place finish last term.

      Stuttgart aren’t thinking about Europe at the moment, their main aim is to reach safety and secure another season in the top flight.

      It’s not going too well so far. They sit in 17th position having collected just 11 points from their opening 15 league matches. They were hoping to improve on their 14th place finish last season, but at the moment they simply don’t look capable of doing that.

      They come into this tough away match against Mainz having lost three of their last four games, with each of those losses ending 4-0. Understandably, they have by far the worst defensive record in the Bundesliga having shipped 36 goals so far, with the next highest total being 29.

      Mainz have a decent home record so far this season, having won their last two at home and picked up 12 points from their eight games. Stuttgart have the worst away record in the league with just four points from a possible 21, and they have lost their last three on the road.

      I can’t look beyond Mainz for this game, and the bookies look to have missed a trick because the odds for Stuttgart to lose their 6th away game of the season come in at 11/10. I’m backing that as well as a 2-0 correct score prediction at 11/1.
