Mainz vs Werder Bremen
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
Werder rebounded from a demolishing 2-6 loss to Bayer Leverkusen by netting five goals past the Regionalliga outfit Weiche Flensburg on Wednesday evening. Die Werderaner thus eased their way to the third round of DFB Pokal and will be looking to return on the winning ways in Bundesliga as well.
The team led by Florian Kohfeldt will have a nice opportunity to do so on Sunday evening when they travel to OPEL ARENA to take on the struggling Mainz in the last game of the Matchday. The hosts have just not been pulling up any trees of late and they will come into this winless in last seven games across competitions.
The O-Fives made it three defeats on the bounce on Tuesday evening when they fell 3-2 away at Augsburg in their respective DFB Pokal tie.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen Head-to-head
The head to head stats also speak heavily in Werder’s favour.
Bremen lead the H2H tie by 6 wins ahead of 25th encounter with the O-Fives.
Die Werderaner also won two and drew one of last three meetings with Mainz.
Both teams scored in five of last six head to head outings.
Mainz vs Werder Bremen Prediction
Mainz had huge troubles to keep things tight at the back in recent fixtures. They allowed nine goals in last three defeats. Werder are definitely a side which can exploit these holes in Mainz’s back line given they scored two or more goals in six of last seven games in all competitions.
Bremen also notched at least two goals in each of last three head to head clashes with the O-Fives. This is why we just have to take the visitors to bag two or more on the occasion at the odds of 2.10.
The away win is also worth backing at 2.37, while braver tipsters can shoot for Die Werderaner to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 3.75.
