Mainz failed to win in the first match in Bundesliga this year, so they will have a chance to improve their performance upfront their supporters. It was their second defeat in a row, including the previous loss against Hertha in December. They have very good options in attack, Muto (7 goals) and Malli (8 goals) are very dangerous and they cause many problems to visitors. Mainz played three friendly matches during the winter break, lost one match against Standard, while in the other two games they beat Club Brugge KV and Koln, but it wasn’t good enough to avoid defeat in the last round against Ingolstadt.

Borussia Mönchengladbach play very good this season and after the middle of Bundesliga they are standing at the 4th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the top 6 and play in the one of the European competitions next season, but there are many other quality teams that want the same. Visitors also failed to win in the first match this year after Dortmund beat them 1-3. After two best teams in Bundesliga, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach have the 3rd best attack and they could be very dangerous for Mainz. But, the main problem of B. Mönchengladbach is their defence. They have one of the worst defences in league, conceded 33 goals in 18 matches this season (they concede average two goals per match).
