Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach play host to Mainz at their Borussia-Park on day 28 of the 2021/2022 Bundesliga campaign. Die Fohlen aim to build on back-to-back wins over Hertha Berlin and Bochum, and they must be high on spirits ahead of Sunday’s clash. Even though several first-team regulars have been tested positive for coronavirus, we are tempted to put our money on the home side.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Arminia Bielefeld. Mainz, though, often struggle on the travels, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Dominik Kohr is banned for the visitors, while all Delano Burgzorg, Silvan Widmer, Finn Dahmen, and Jerry St. Juste should miss out with injuries. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but we are tempted to put our money on the in-form hosts this time out.
