Mainz vs Stuttgart
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Opel Arena (Mainz).
Mainz was caught off guard in their opening match when they lost to RB Leipzig with a 3-1 scoreline away from home in the league. Returning home will probably help Achim Beierlorzer to pick up his team from the loss.
In addition to the ground advantage, the host will face VfB Stuttgart in the clash. The visitor is a promoted team, but they are not strange to the Bundesliga fixtures. They will visit after a 2-3 loss at home against Freiburg in the opening match of this season campaign.

Mainz vs Stuttgart Prediction
The match is sizing to be a home win with the promoted side on the backhand of lacking the ground advantage against Mainz. Besides, their h2h history has seen the host winning the previous four meetings, but with just one clean sheet win in it.
Mainz had a dull record at home last season with only 5 wins in their 17 league appearances as the host in the schedule. Their scoring average at home was close to 1.1 goals and had three losses within the last four home matches in their form.
Die Nullfunfer has been having troubles at home in their recent home matches. Only three of their last 12 home matches have been won by the host. This suggests a drop in form at home, which will in turn give the promoted team a chance to at least return home with a point.
Based on that stat, the safest bet for the punters will be a double chance favoring Mainz. Apart from that, BTTS has been a regular occurrence in their recent h2h meetings between these sides. So, the tip for a BTTS in the clash will come in handy for the punters.
Since the home team is not in their best form at home, the goals will not come in a huge number at Opel Arena despite the ground advantage for the former. Hence, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably serve the purpose to yield decent returns from the game.
