Mainz 05 to Win
Bo Svensson is taking his side on the road but will be hopeful of taking home the three points on offer. Werder Bremen is matching Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke's horrendous losing streaks, which should add to Mainz's ambitions. Moreover, the visitors are on a five-match unbeaten streak on the road and should be able to add Werder's scalp to their backpacks.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
In their last five outings, Werder Bremen has seen three goals or more four times. It is in stark contrast to their season's tally, which has seen them as ‘the' goal averse side in German top-flight football. Couple this with Mainz's own reluctance, and we have a recipe for a competitive but dour result. Both sides average around a goal per game and it looks unlikely that this mould will be broken in the midweek fixture.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their four successive outings, Mainz have gotten on the scoreboard and allowed their rivals the same opportunity. Werder has been on a similar run, despite their losing run. They have scored in four of their last five matches, all of which ended in defeat. The visitors can outscore them on the night but expect Josh Sargent and Co. to trouble the scorers as well.
Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Team News and Match Preview
SV Werder Bremen
The River Islanders were coasting in this season, far from the troubles of the 2019/20 campaign. However, their recent run of five successive defeats in the Bundesliga has brought them to the same place as last year. They have allowed all and sundry to poke holes in their sinking ship and another year of a tense relegation battle awaits them. Florian Kohfeldt has to address his team's issues but seems helpless as the injury list continues to build up.
FC Mainz 05
Given their impressive recent form, the Carnival Club have moved out of the relegation-playoff slots. They have accumulated 11 points from the available 15, and should be aiming the comfort of midtable obscurity by the end of the 2020/21 campaign. Bo Svensson should be lauded for this transformation which has seen Mainz register 42.86% win rate under his tutelage. The feat is more impressive as the club sold Jean-Philippe Mateta to Crystal Palace in the January transfer window.
