Hoffenheim vs Mainz Prediction

Hoffenheim are on a stellar six-match winning streak at the moment, with their most recent victims being FC Koln on the road. Despite trailing at the end of the break, in that latter matchup, the hosts mustered a comeback in the final forty-five minutes to ensure that all of the spoils went their way.

With six wins under their belt, the home side are now sitting fifth on the ladder with twenty points to their name. On the other hand, Mainz are well below their counterparts and will be making the trip to PreZero Arena on the back of a dismal two-match losing streak.

The visitors were handed a 3-2 defeat at home by Union Berlin in their last clash, prior to which RB Leipzig ran riot over them with a whopping 8-0 scorecard at the Red Bull Arena. Furthermore, Mainz have just one win to boast off from their last six games on the road.

In sharp contrast, Hoffenheim have been recording back to back victories in their past two clashes here. Furthermore, the only two defeats for the hosts at home have come against Freiburg and Borussia Monchengladbach, both of whom are currently dwelling in the top four.

With Mainz failing the pick up the win in each of their past five trips here in a running as well, count on Hoffenheim to be the ones securing the bragging rights this weekend.

Additionally, the home side have scored two goals or more in three of their last five clashes here, amassing a total of eight goals to their tally. Meanwhile, Mainz have succumbed to defeat by a three-goal margin or more in half of their past six Bundesliga outings.

There have also been no dearth of goals in three of their previous four h2h matchups here. Hence, by all means, expect over 2.5 goals on the charts at the last blast of the whistle.
