Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach quickly bounced back from a heavy 5-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, with the team beating Hoffenheim (3-1) on the road at the weekend. Die Fohlen are eyeing a place in European competitions and they need to keep on improving their game if they are to meet the goal. Borussia M’gladbach have defeated the likes of Koln, Eintracht Frankfurt and Hannover at home ground in the first half of the season and they are considered favourites on paper to win Saturday’s football match against Mainz. Die Nullfunfer failed to score in three of their first four away games of the season and that is the main reason why home win should be considered. Thorgan Hazard found the net in the 3-1 win over Hoffenheim and the Belgium international will be the man to watch in the home team. Taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Christoph Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development. Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career. Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 World Cup.
