Mainz vs Werder Bremen Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Opel Arena.
The 05ers need just two more points to ensure their safety, and they seem hell-bent on securing that objective. Just the last match-day, they defeated the seemingly unstoppable Borussia Dortmund, and that too at their own turf.
Needless to say, we can count on the 05ers to give all they have on the pitch to extend their stay in the top flight. On the other side we have the River Islanders, who need six points from the remaining two games to even to dream of avoiding relegation.
Not just that – they need the two teams above them (including the 05ers) to lose their next two fixtures as well. In short, the Islanders are under huge pressure, and it seems very likely that Mainz will secure their required two points from this game itself.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a massive 0-5 win for the 05ers.
- Eight of the prior nine encounters saw the Islanders failing to keep a clean sheet.
- Four of the previous five match-ups had goals from both teams.
- Since 2005, only once have the home team failed to score goals at this stadium.
- The last time these two locked horns at this ground, the 05ers registered a 2-1 victory.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
The 05ers recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against none other than Der BVB. In a must-win game, and that too against the second-best team in the country, the team displayed phenomenal heart throughout the fixture – resulting in them posting the three points.
In the meantime, the Islanders lost 0-1 at home the past match-day, against Bayern Munich. The Bavarians came determined for the three points, as it would award them their eighth straight German crown, and sure enough the sole strike by Robert Lewandowski delivered them the title.
As things stand, the 05ers are easily the favorites. Keep note that they had recorded a 0-5 win away from home in the reverse fixture, and that they need just two more points to avoid relegation. On top of that, they are supremely confident at present due to their win over Der BVB.
On the contrary, the Islanders are deep in the relegation zone, and odds are overwhelmingly against them in reaching the 15th spot. Due to the pressure they are under, they will have to go looking for goals, which will give ample opportunity for the 05ers to take advantage of.
Taking into account these factors, expect Mainz 05 to post a memorable performance this weekend.
