📊 Form Guide

Mainz LWDDLD

Mainz go into this fixture following a 1-1 Bundesliga 1 drawn match against 1. FC Union Berlin. In that game, 1. FSV Mainz 05 had 52% possession and 3 shots at goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for 1. FSV Mainz 05 was Ridle Baku (13'). 1. FC Union Berlin had 5 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. Marcus Ingvartsen (33') was the scorer for 1. FC Union Berlin.

It’s been all too rare in recent games that Mainz have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Die Nullfünfer have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 13 goals during that time.

A look at their previous results shows us that Mainz:

  • have not been beaten in the league by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in their last 3 games.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
  • are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
  • are without an away win for the past 4 matches in the league.

Hoffenheim DLDLDW

Hoffenheim come into this encounter after a 1-0 Bundesliga 1 win vs 1. FC Köln in their last outing. In that game, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim had 52% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim was Christoph Baumgartner (11'). 1. FC Köln got 5 attempts at goal with 2 on target.

The attacking players from Hoffenheim have suffered from a shortage of goals over their last six clashes, netting the poor return of just 4. In those matches, Hoffenheim have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 12. That kind of pattern might not be carried forward into this game, of course.

Looking at their past form shows that TSG 1899 Hoffenheim:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in their last 3 games.
  • are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
  • are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 4 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Inspecting their most recent head-to-head clashes dating back to 04/02/2017 shows that Mainz have won 2 of these & Hoffenheim 3, with the tally of drawn results standing at 1.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 29 in total which averages out at 4.83 goals per match.

The previous league contest between these clubs was Bundesliga 1 match day 12 on 24/11/2019 when it ended Hoffenheim 1-5 Mainz. That day, Hoffenheim managed 63% possession and 22 shots on goal with 9 on target. The scorers were Pavel Kadeřábek (52' Own goal) and Andrej Kramarić (83'). At the other end, Mainz got 12 shots on goal with 5 on target. Levin Öztunalı (33'), Pierre Kunde (62', 93') and Jean-Paul Boëtius (90') scored. The referee was Bastian Dankert.

ℹ️ Team News: Mainz

We think that Die Nullfünfer look set to make use of the 3-4-2-1 system featuring Florian Müller, Jeffrey Bruma, Alexander Hack, Moussa Niakhate, Daniel Brosinski, Leandro Barreiro Martins, Pierre Kunde, Ridle Baku, Robin Quaison, Karim Onisiwo and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

📋 Team News: Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim boss Alfred Schreuder has not got a full squad to pick from. Ermin Bicakcic (Achilles tendon injury), Ishak Belfodil (Cruciate ligament injury) and Sargis Adamyan (Ankle injury) can’t be considered.

It’s our belief that Hoffenheim seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 formation, starting Oliver Baumann, Steven Zuber, Ermin Bicakcic, Stefan Posch, Pavel Kaderabek, Florian Grillitsch, Dennis Geiger, Sebastian Rudy, Christoph Baumgartner, Ihlas Bebou and Robert Skov.

✨ Prediction

We’re thinking that Hoffenheim and Mainz could both well score more than once here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner. While there should be goals at both ends, it’s too close to call. We’re therefore predicting a great battle with a 2-2 draw at the end of the match.
