Mainz Team News

The Mainz team has finished firmly in the middle of the table in the last few seasons, and in the previous season they were even involved in the fight for European competitions. Considering the individual quality and reinforcements they had brought before this season, we should not be surprised if we see them again in the upper half of the Bundesliga table.

Adding reinforcements such as Burgzog, Cacio, Fulginio, Barkok and Leitsch, they have reason to expect another good quality season. Mainz is off to a solid start in the ongoing Bundesliga season. In 10 games they have collected 15 points and are currently in the middle of the table.

They had a desperate period where they went four games without a win, but that streak was ended last weekend with an away win over Werder. However, in the middle of this week, with an easy 3-0 win over Lubeck in the DFB Pokal, they confirmed that in the coming period, we should expect much better games from them.

Prior to this match, the Mainz team has some problems with injuries in the last line, therefore, they cannot count on Silvan Widmer and Maxim Leitsch, who are usually standard in the starting eleven, but apart from these, they do not have problems with injured players.

1.FC Koln Team News

Following a couple of disappointing seasons in which Koln had finished in the bottom half of the Bundesliga table, last season happened to be a great for them. They ended the season as the seventh-placed team in the Bundesliga and thus secured participation in the Conference League this season.

Before the beginning of the previous season, they had brought in several extraordinary players. Besides a few reinforcements prior to this season, they surely have the quality to fight for European tournaments. For now, Koln is the seventh-placed team in the Bundesliga with 16 points won and 19 goals scored in 10 games and if they did not have issues with injured players, they would probably have an even better start to the season. They did not impress in the Conference League. Presently, they have only won four points in four games, but in those games they mostly played in a combined team.

Sebastian Andersson, Julian Chabot, Dimitrios Limnios, Mathias Olsen and Tim Lemperle are out of team for a while, and Jan Thielmann and Dejan Ljubičić have joined the list of injured players, which will surely affect the team’s performance in the coming period.

Head-to-Head

  • In the last six duels between each other, both teams recorded two victories, while two matches ended without a winner.
  • Last season, we saw seven goals in two games between these teams.
  • In six of the last seven meetings between these teams, both teams scored at least one goal.

Mainz vs. 1.FC Koln Prediction

In the matches between Mainz and Koln, we are used to see many goals in recent years, and considering that both teams have problems with injured players in the last line before this match, we expect a large number of scoring chances from both sides today.
