Mainz vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA, Mainz.
Mainz 05 found an impressive form right in the very finish of the season to snatch three wins in last four rounds. They will thus enter the final day round stress free being six points above Wolfsburg in 16th. Their rivals, Werder Bremen, have had such feeling for a while now having secured the new Bundesliga campaign long time ago. Let’s take a quick look at the key points that help us make the predictions for this weekend fixture.
The lack of imperative for Die Werderaner caused the dreadful streak of five games on the bounce without a win. Can they arrest such slump in the very last Matchday when they’ll finally get the chance to play the bottom-half opposition?
Finding goals was the main problem for Florian Kohfeldt and his lads in recent weeks as they’ll come into this after bagging just one in last three league ties. Mainz’s defensive line has been anything but reliable throughout the season, but Sandro Schwarz looks to have instilled some confidence into it, as the team shipped just one in back-to-back wins over the likes of RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
- Werder Bremen are the favourites if we are to judge by the head to head record.
- Die Werderaner won 11 and lost 7 of 23 meetings with Mainz 05.
- Interestingly, Bremen were particularly inspired in matches at OPEL ARENA where they won 7 of 11 meetings with the O-Fives.
- None of last seven H2H matches saw the home side getting the spoils.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
The match will by no means affect the final standings in Bundesliga which is why we can expect a rather more comfortable approach from both managers. We have to expect goals in such circumstances, meaning that the BTTS bet should be a banker at 1.50 odds.
Mainz 05 come into it as the form favourites after bagging five goals in shocking wins over RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund which is why we’ll take the home win all day long at the 2.30 odds. You can obviously combine these two options into one, backing the O-Fives to win & BTTS to get the 3.75 odds.
