Hoffenheim to win at Mainz

On Saturday afternoon, Mainz host Hoffenheim, as the visitors look to finish in the Bundesliga top six and earn a Europa League spot for next season.

Mainz have enjoyed the definition of an inconsistent Bundesliga campaign, as they are currently 12th place in the table, 13 points clear of the relegation play-off spot, while 14 points shy of the European berths.

Last time out in the Bundesliga, the homes side recorded a shock 2-0 win at high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt. The win means that the home side has picked up four points from their two league games against two of the leagues top-five.

Mainz’s recent Bundesliga matches have been high-scoring, with six of their last eight league games producing over 2.5 goals.

Mainz’s recent home record in the German top-flight has been inconsistent. However, they are unbeaten in three home matches, having recorded two wins and a draw. Their recent home games in the Bundesliga have been high-scoring too, with over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight matches.

Hoffenheim are eighth place in the Bundesliga, two points adrift of the European spots after a poor recent run of league form in the German top-flight. The odds are against the visitors finishing in the European spots, although they do have a superior goal difference to some of their rivals.

A 1-0 home defeat by Werder Bremen last time out means that Hoffenheim have now failed to win in three league outings. Their recent league games have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four outings.

Hoffenheim are unbeaten in four away games in the Bundesliga, recording two wins and two draws on their travels. The visitor’s recent away matches have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five Bundesliga games.

Forebet predicts that Hoffenheim will record a victory in a high-scoring clash which may be enough for the visitors to earn a European spot for next season.
