Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting tips
Football is for many people the nicest thing in the world. One aspect of why he is so beautiful is that he is not always understandable. As Bayer Leverkusen shoots a 0-1 deficit at home against Bayern last weekend and beats the German record champions in the end even with 3: 1, only a few days later, despite a separate 1-0 half-time lead with 1: 2 to lose at a second division. The defeat at Heidenheim in the second round of the DFB Cup should have brought back Leverkusen back to the bottom of the facts. However, there is still plenty of time to lament, because on Friday the Werkself are called for the away game in Mainz.
The zero fighters will have analyzed the game of Leverkusen in Heidenheim and will do their utmost to retain the three points in the domestic Opel Arena. Leverkusen, on the other hand, has the opportunity to rehabilitate itself as quickly as possible just three days after the end of the Cup. After the victory against Bayern probably most had expected a three-time by Bayer on Friday. But the defeat in Heidenheim ensures that in the game between Mainz and Leverkusen the forecast for a tip again turns out to be less clear.

Mainz was still lucky in the match against the newly promoted that a toe of the opponent prevented a 2-1 deficit, was on the last Sunday Fortuna not on the side of the carnival club. Within 25 minutes, Mainz received two penalties in the away game in Augsburg and as a result, after just over half an hour with 0: 2 behind. In the end, Mainz lost 3-0 to FC Augsburg, who saw a win in the Bundesliga after three draws and seven defeats. Mainz itself missed the defeat, approaching very close to the international starting places, but is still in wait.

Mainz has been very strong so far in the ten home games in the Bundesliga this season. Four home games were won by the zero players, four more times there was a draw. Only two games in the domestic Opel Arena has lost Mainz and these were the matches against Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, in which the zero five were also inferior, each with 1: 2 very close.
But what Mainz still has to work on, especially in home games, is the defense work. In only three of the ten home games Mainz could keep behind the zero. In the last six home matches, the zero fighters have always conceded at least one goal. With a total of 16 conceded in home games, there are only five teams who had to grab more often at home so far. With a total of 28 conceded goals against Mainz is in this statistics on an acceptable seventh place. Also expandable is the offensive of the team of coach Sandro Black. Because so far it brought Mainz in 20 Bundesliga games on only 22 hits. Only the lowest relegation candidates in the German upper house have so far scored fewer goals.
Runs for Peter Bosz – or better said: Deliver for Peter Bosz! Since the Dutch took the helm at Bayer Leverkusen for the winter break, not only the performances of the Werkself but also the results were correct until Tuesday at 19:30. Mostly because Leverkusen lost in the first competitive match under Bosz. At the start to the second half Bayer was defeated at home against Gladbach 0: 1. However, it was a game that Leverkusen should never have lost. In the end, the odds ratio was 22: 7 in favor of Bayer, who also had the nose in front of the goals with the shots on the goal 10: 3.
But just a week later Leverkusen made it better and won 3-0 in Wolfsburg. This time, Leverkusen even made 23 chances, with the only difference that just three of the total of 14 shots on the wolves’ housing also found their way into it. There were only eleven chances left last weekend, but they should be enough to send Bayern home 3-1. The Werkself turned a 0-1 deficit to the break and won for the first time in just under four years again a game against Bayern. In the table Leverkusen climbed through this threesome to seventh and still scored with an eye on the Champions League rank four. The gap to RB Leipzig is indeed seven points, but there are still 14 matchdays to complete.
In the Bundesliga Leverkusen lost only one of the last five games, the other four were all won. Away is Leverkusen in the German upper house with four wins, two draws and four defeats at 16:15 goals only mediocre way. But: The last two away games in the Bundesliga Leverkusen could decide for themselves. Accordingly, in the match of Leverkusen in Mainz can think about a tip on the away win, especially since this also drops a decent odds – would not there be the surprising end in the second round of the DFB Cup, as Leverkusen on Tuesday in Heidenheim despite a 1-0 Leadership lost to break due to desolater second 45 minutes at the end with 1: 2.
