Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz will bring down the curtain on day 21 of the 2022/2023 Bundesliga campaign. Xabi Alonso’s men aim to build on a 3-1 win over Hoffenheim, and they are surely capable of matching die Nullfunfer in front of home fans. In Patrick Schick’s absence, Florian Wirtz will continue to lead the line for the hosts, with Andrey Lunev and Charles Aranguiz missing out as well.
Mainz, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels of late, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four away matches, and given their poor record at BayArena, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. As for the away team, all Silvan Widmer, Robin Zentner, Delano Burgzorg, and Jonathan Burkardt are out of contention with injuries.
