Draw No Bet: Mainz 05
Mainz 05 have only suffered a single defeat in their last ten outings, which has propelled them out of the relegation slots. The same period has seen FC Cologne lose six and draw two games. While Cologne are unbeaten at home in their last two games, it is the visitors who are favored to take home the points with eight points from the available 12 on the road.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Both Cologne and Mainz score at an average of a goal per game but concede at close to twice this value. The over have been realized in two of their last three successive games and it should be realized again too. The porous defenses of both sides, coupled with their recent improvement in goalscoring should bring the Over 2.5 to fruition.
Both teams to score: Yes
The Billy Goats have been shut out twice in their last five home games while Mainz have failed to score in two of their last five away games. Moreover, four of Cologne's games have seen the visitors score. With both sides getting on the scoreboard in the May 2020 fixture and the preceding two games at the RheinEnergieStadion, goals should flow.
Cologne vs Mainz: Team News and Match Preview
Potential six-pointer as FC Cologne welcomes FSV Mainz 05
A couple of points and a +3 goal difference separates FSV Mainz 05 and FC Cologne. The latter occupy the Bundesliga relegation playoff slot and need the three points on offer. Prolificacy in front of goal and a porous defense describes both sides forays in the 2020/21 German top-flight campaign. To avoid the drop and to put distance between themselves and Arminia Bielefeld, a win will be on the agenda of both Markus Gisdol and Bo Svensson.
In his last ten games in charge, Gisdol has seen Cologne managed a couple of wins and six draws. Only one victory has been achieved in this period. On the other hand, Svensson has turned the Carnival Club into one of the form teams in Bundesliga. They have been the fifth-best side in Germany, behind Julien Nagelsmann's RB Leipzig with 18 points from an available 30.
