Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schuco Arena (Bielefeld).
Bielefeld is going through some tough times in the top tier of German football. The host has lost their last seven league clashes in their schedule and is near to the bottom of the league table.
They have only one win from their nine appearances, making up to the 4 points in the campaign this term. Their previous encounter was on the road and lost to RB Leipzig with a 2-1 scoreline.
Mainz is just one point ahead of the host on the table and is also in the relegation zone. However, the Carnival club has made a comeback in the league with three unbeaten games in a row.
The visitor has lost 6 of their 9 league fixtures so far this season, along with a win and 2 draws. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Hoffenheim in the schedule.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Mainz Prediction
With both teams in contention for relegation this season, we cannot count on the sides to turn the clash into an action-packed fixture.
From their last 12 h2h meetings, the teams have averaged 2.3 goals per game and had only one BTTS in their last five h2h clashes.
So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will come in handy for the punters, as we can expect a low-scoring affair on Saturday at Schuco Arena.
Considering the visitor’s comeback in the recent three fixtures, they have a good chance against the promoted side.
Bielefeld is on a seven-game losing streak in the campaign, which rules out any use of their ground advantage in the game.
The double chance favoring Mainz will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter under safer conditions.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Mainz Betting tips
