Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting tips
Bayer Leverkusen starts after the international break with an away game against Mainz 05. Saturday’s game heralds the start of a busy period for Peter Bosz’s team.
For FSV Mainz 05, the season did not start as desired. We have now been on the road for three rounds in the Bundesliga, but Die Nullfünfer are still waiting for their first point. Three hopeless defeats were suffered. After the second of those three losses, Achim Beierlorzer had to expand the field as a trainer, but his successor Jan Mortiz Lichte turned out to be no miracle doctor. For two weeks, Mainz lost very big to FC Union Berlin with him on the bench. Mainz took off from the German capital with a 4-0 loss.
So, even though it is still early in the season, it is all hands on deck for Mainz. “I expect all players to throw in everything they have,” said Lichte in the run-up to the game against Leverkusen. Mainz will have to bring something special, because the last mutual encounters with Leverkusen did not end well for M05. The five last mutual duels were all lost by Mainz.
Surprisingly, Bayer Leverkusen is still waiting for his first league victory of this season. The three league matches that Peter Bosz and his team have completed so far ended in draws. Two weeks ago Die Werkself played a great match when visiting VfB Stuttgart. Patrik Schick put Bayer ahead, and there were chances for more. However, they were killed, after which happened what often happens in football: the goal fell on the other side. Leverkusen had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
Bosz can cheer himself up with the fact that his team’s game, especially in the last two games, was not that bad at all. With a little more thoroughness in the finish, the good results should come naturally. For Die Werkself a busy period is dawning, due to the European program compressed for well-known reasons. Bayer will play in the Europa League, in which OGC Nice, Slavia Prague and Hapoel Beer Sheva will be the opponents. It would not be illogical if Bosz would rotate lightly in the EL matches and play with his strongest team in the Bundesliga as much as possible.
