Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at Opel Arena pits together Mainz and Borussia M’gladbach, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season. As before, Mainz’s main goal is to secure the elite division survival, but their slow start to the season is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Even though Mainz boss Rouven Schroder has a full squad to choose from, home win should not be considered as the rock-bottom side lack in confidence.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, aim to secure yet another top-four finish. Even though they play on three fronts this season, the visitors are likely to beat the out-of-sorts hosts at Opel Arena. In each of their last four meetings in the Bundesliga die Fohlen emerged triumphant. Louis Jordan Beyer is rated doubtful for the match after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
