Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts are winless in their last 6 matches, while Mainz are unbeaten in 5.
  • Mainz have only lost 3 of their last 10 Bundesliga games, defeats which all came against teams currently in the top 5.
  • Mainz’s good run has come despite them conceding in 8 consecutive games.

Stuttgart’s Struggles Continue

VFL Stuttgart were reasonably unfortunate in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Borussia Dortmund, but the result extended a dreadful run of form for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team. They are now winless in 6 matches, losing the last 4, and have won just 1 of their last 12 games, a run which stretches back to early August, and has left them in the Bundesliga’s relegation playoff place.

Bo Svensson’s Mainz, on the other hand, would move into 5th with a win on Friday night, level on points with the Champions League places, albeit having played an extra game. They’ve gone unbeaten in 5, although they were slightly fortunate to escape with a draw against Koln last time out.

Mainz have only lost 3 times since mid-August, defeats which came in successive weeks against Bayer Leverkusen, Union Berlin, and Dortmund, all of whom currently occupy places in the top 5.  Svensson’s side have also scored in every game since 25th September, a run which should continue against a Stuttgart team whose last (and only) Bundesliga clean sheet came on that same matchday.

Stuttgart are allowing opponents more shots than any other Bundesliga team, a metric by which Mainz are the leagues’s third best team. The visitors’ counter-attacking 3-5-2 system has served them brilliantly throughout Svensson’s time in charge, and I’m backing them to extend their strong recent form with a victory at Stuttgart.

Despite their good run, Mainz have conceded in 8 consecutive games, making an away win with both teams netting look a good value bet for this encounter, while 2-1 to Mainz seems a solid correct score prediction.
