Our match prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen have been totally out of form of late. Following a 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt Bayer Leverkusen played out a goalless draw with Augsburg in midweek, but it has to be noted that they missed a chance to score the winner form the penalty spot. The BayArena outfit dropped to 13th place in the standings and, no doubt, they will go for a win in Saturday’s football match against Mainz. Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Augsburg and Werder Bremen on the road and they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Roger Schmidt’s troops. Both teams are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s clash and we predict that fans are going to see goals galore at OPEL ARENA. When the two teams met in Bundesliga earlier in 2016 Mainz recorded a 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
