Mainz vs Darmstadt
Date: Sunday, 16th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Coface Arena, Mainz.
Mainz will welcome Darmstadt to their home stadium on Sunday afternoon as the two teams aims to get back to winning ways in the Bundesliga.
Mainz last competitive game before the international break was 0-0 away draw against Wolfsburg. Both teams were unable to find the back of the net, as they shared a point each in the game.
However, Mainz will enter this fixture from a 0-7 away win in a club friendly against Hadamar during the international break. That now makes it 3 games unbeaten run in all competitions for Mainz as they have also won Qabala in the Europa League last week. Mainz are 11th in the Bundesliga with 8 points, 4 points below UCL positions and 2 points below UEL spots.
Darmstadt have been very poor since the beginning of the season, they have managed just a win in their opening six game. They will enter this game from a 4-game winless streak that includes the 2-2 against Werder Bremen before the break.
Darmstadt are in the 14th position in the table with 5 points to their name, 2 points above the drop zone. A win in this game will keep them on same point with Mainz but not above them due to their poor goal difference.
Mainz vs Darmstadt: Head to Head Statistics
- Both teams have only played two games in the past, which was in last season’s Bundesliga.
- Darmstadt lost the first leg 2-3 at home soil, while they drew with Mainz 05 at OPEL Arena.
Mainz vs Darmstadt: Prediction
Mainz 05 are not in a good shape, but they are miles better than Darmstadt in the recent weeks. Their last 4 competitive games have seen 2 wins a draw and a loss. They have scored at least 2 goals in 3 of their last 4 competitive games.
Meanwhile Darmstadt are win-less in their last 4 Bundesliga games, with 2 draws and 2 defeats. They have conceded a total of 10 goals in their last 4 Bundesliga games, and have scored a total of 3 goals.
Mainz should have no problem in winning here, they have already bagged 8 goals at home this season. I expect them to score at least 2 goals in this one.
