Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at Opel Arena pits together Mainz and Koln, the two bottom-table sides. Mainz are eager to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in yet another relegation six-pointer. Die Nullfunfer have recorded only one win in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign, but this game could be the turning point for the relegation strugglers. Austria international Kevin Stoger, who scored as a substitute at the weekend, is pushing for a start.
The Billy Goats, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating Borussia Dortmund on the road, while sharing the spoils with Wolfsburg at home. Since Mainz are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash, we believe that the visitors will have a number of opportunities to seal the victory on the break. Koln midfielder Salih Ozcan, who suffered an injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Mainz.
