Paderborn vs Mainz Prediction
Steffen Baumgart’s men have not recorded a result worthy of their faithful’s adoration and have garnered just one measly point from their last six games in the Bundesliga. The newly-promoted side are on an alarming three-match losing streak, the last of which was at the hands of the current table-toppers Bayern Munich at home.
Their four-year break from top-flight football has surely played a huge part in their struggles to have a taste of success, as the hosts have now hit rock bottom in the table.
On the other hand, their counterparts for the week Mainz have been at the losing end in their last two clashes as well, both of which albeit were by a narrow one-goal margin against Wolfsburg and Schalke respectively. The visiting contingent nevertheless have the upper hand in this one as they have picked up a win once already, which was against Hertha Berlin at home.
Furthermore, Mainz have not admitted defeat against this foe in any of their previous matchups and have come out on top twice in their previous four clashes. Their last two visits to this venue have seen both teams salvage just a point in each. Hence, taking into account the dismal form that Paderborn are on at the moment, the safest punt would be a double chance backing a draw or Mainz to win.
Additionally, despite missing out on the win, the hosts have been particularly consistent in breaching all of their foes at least once and have scored a total of four goals so far from their last three games here. Given that their previous two head to head matchups here have also finished with goals down each end, by all means, expect both teams to get their names on the scoresheet.
