Werder Bremen vs Mainz Prediction
As the reigning champions defeated Werder Bremen with a 6-1 score on the board, the latter marked their fourth loss in the last five Bundesliga matches.
Their most recent win was against Wolfsburg with a 2-3 scoreline on the road. However, Werder will be delighted to return home to gain the advantage.
Even so, they are winless in the recent five home matches in the campaign with two draws. But the host will be keen to win this game as the three points would move them further up in the league table.
Die Werderaner do at least boast a mid-ranking attack, having scored at least one goal in nine of their previous ten league fixtures. Despite this, they have been experiencing problems at their back.
They are yet to keep a single Bundesliga clean sheet in the contest. Also, Bremen has averaged 2.33 goals conceded per game this season. That represents the second-worst defensive record in the division.
Meanwhile, Mainz are also in poor shape, losing ten of their 15 league matches. The guest has not been subjected to a draw yet in this campaign.
Apart from that, they are the only team in the division with a worse defensive record than their Werder Bremen. Also, the visitor has conceded two or more goals in each of the last four encounters. Besides, Mainz has been on the low even in their h2h meetings lately.
As such, the host has more chance of registering a win in the game. Since both teams have their individual grace, it is safer to go with a double chance in ninety minutes.
