Mainz vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday, 29th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Coface Arena, Mainz, Rheinland-Pfalz.
Mainz 05 could be relatively happy on how they started the new season, but should be worried with latest slips. They are currently 9th in the league table with 11 points after 8 match-weeks. They had won 3, draws 2 and lost 3 and 2 of those 3 defeats have come in the last 4 matches. Schalke thrashed them 3-0 last weekend and it was the second time inside 3 matches that Mainz have failed to scored.
Ingolstadt remain inside the relegation zone and are one of two German sides who are without a win so far in the 2016/17 season. They managed 2 points so far from 2 draws, and lost 6 of their 8 games. But they are coming on the back of a huge result after holding Borussia Dortmund to a 3-3 draw on matchday 8 at home last weekend.
Mainz vs Ingolstadt: Head-to-Head Stats
The pair of Bundesliga clashed between the two sides of 2015/16 season have ended in 1-0 wins in favour of Ingolstadt.
These two sides are only meeting for the 5th time in a league match and their previous two meetings in the second division during the 2008/09 season. The teams share a win each in two league meetings of that season.
Mainz vs Ingolstadt: Prediction
Mainz are a side with plenty of attacking potential and have already scored 14 goals so far this season. But their main problem is a sloppy defense that has the tendency of conceding in heavy numbers.
Ingolstadt are a side in desperate need of a win and they are still searching for their first win. Just like their Saturday’s opposition, Mainz are also vulnerable in defense and have conceded 17 goals so far this season. But they do not have the same quality like Mainz in attack.
The home side could come out with a win here in a potential high scoring thriller.
