Werder Bremen vs Mainz
Date: Saturday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Werder Bremen have kept up their unbeaten streak since early in 2019 and they now host Mainz for their Matchday 27 clash on the back of five wins and five draws seen in ten outings. They’ve beaten Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen in two exciting clashes where Florian Kohfeldt’s men prove the good mood in the final third – primarily led by in-form Milot Rashica and Max Kruse.
Mainz 05 have seen a more unpredictable spell of form and March losses to Hertha, Borussia M’gladbach, and Bayern Munich with nine goals conceded and just one scored will be worrying. They will now want to make use of the International break and bounce back with an upset at Weserstadion but it’s hard to see them outclass the rivals chasing the top 6 spots. Die Werderaner sit just three points behind 6th placed Leverkusen and we now hope to see them very motivated to close in as soon as this weekend.
Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Head-to-head
Mainz snatched a 2-1 home win over the rivals this term, with goals from Mateta and Gbamin.
Die Nullfunfer thus ended a three-game winless streak in head-to-head clashes, now hoping to build on it.
Werder Bremen haven’t bagged a home win over the rivals since November 2012 (2-1 in Bundesliga).
We’ve seen goals on both ends in six of the sides’ last seven head-to-head clashes.
Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Prediction
We now hope to see Bremen capitalize on the visitors’ woes of recent and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.61, which looks like buying money for old rope after seeing Kohfeldt’s men prove themselves a very tough nut through most part of the campaign already.
However, we expect to see an exciting contest and the home side should be forced into an exciting clash as they turn it their way. We thus hope for a similar quest now and we’ll also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.66 – which looks a great way to go about the fixture by itself for the big hitters. We’ve seen goals between the sides on the regular and now hope to see more of the same.
