Mainz have struggled to secure a win since the league restart which is becoming a little worrying for the side. They currently sit 15th on the standings and are just six points clear of the drop-zone. Clearly, they are still in the relegation picture and will need a couple of wins to steer clear of the danger zone.

Having been flirting with relegation since the start of the campaign, it is fair to say that the 05ers have not been enjoying the best of seasons. Their primary target at the moment, would be Bundesliga survival come the close of the campaign.

The visiting contingent are in high spirits and are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to claiming a top-six finish. With a game against struggling Mainz on the horizon, Hoffenheim will fancy their chances of clinching maximum points to remain hot on the tails on sixth-placed Wolfsburg.

Mainz vs Hoffenheim Team News

Mainz were on the road last time out to take on Union Berlin, heading into the game as slight underdogs given the stupendous form the hosts have managed so far this season. A game they were expected to lose, the 05ers managed to salvage a draw.

It was an interesting game of football at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei as both sides played with intensity right from kick-off. Despite Mainz’s impressive display, Union Berlin looked the better side throughout the game and should really have grabbed a win.

However, against all odds, Mainz managed to secure a point to move further away from the drop zone. Still considered relegation candidates, Achim Beierlorzer’s charges will need to garner more points over the coming weeks to move further away from the drop-zone.

Hoffenheim, on the other hand, were handed the routine task of seeing off a weak FC Koln side on the last match-day. As expected, Die Kraichgauer turned in a performance of the highest quality, securing an impressive result in the process. It was a great game for Schreuder’s men.

A game where both sides saw red, managing with ten men for large portions of the game, Hoffenheim grabbed a very comfortable victory to keep up with sixth-placed Wolfsburg. 

For this fixture, Hoffenheim are considered huge favorites for the win taking recent performances into consideration. They are just three points away from breaking into the final Europa League spot on the standings. They have admitted defeat on 11 occasions from their 28 league games. Having been on a humiliating seven-game winless run, they managed to bring that streak to a halt with their win over FC Koln in mid-week.

The hosts have struggled to get the three points on board this season, having won just twice from their previous ten league games. The main reason for these struggles has been their defense, as they have struggled to keep opposing teams at bay. They have conceded a whopping 61 goals this season, giving them a place amongst the worst defensive sides in the league.

Mainz vs Hoffenheim Predictions

On paper, Hoffenheim seem overwhelming favorites for the win. However, since the league restart, most teams have struggled with consistency as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund remain the only two teams to have shown their superiority week in, week out.

The rest of the league have simply been alternating between wins, losses and draws as inconsistency has become the order of the day. As such, the visitors cannot be trusted to blow their opposing number out of the waters here. Expect both sides to register more than two goals between them before the end of the game.
