Bundesliga: Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart

Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart Betting Tip and Predictions.

In the opening match in Bundesliga on Friday night, Mainz take on VfB Stuttgart.

Mainz started this season very good and after 16 Rounds they are standing at the 7th position. They are in the great form, unbeaten in their last 5 matches, so if they continue with good performance they could reach the place which leads in the UEFA Europa League next season. The match against VfB Stuttgart could move up to 3rd position and they will be fully motivated to beat them. In the last two Bundesliga matches, Mainz scored 5 goals, so visitors could be in trouble tonight.

VfB Stuttgart stand in the relegation zone with only 11 points after 15 matches. They desperately need points, but Mainz are in the great form, so it would be hard for visitors to take some points there. Stuttgart play very poor this season and if they don’t change something in their performance they could play in the 2. Bundesliga next season. The main problem for visitors is their defence. Stuttgart have the worst defence in whole league, conceded 36 goals this season (average more than 2 goals per match) and it would be very hard task to make some positive result.

Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart injuries and suspensions

Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart possible lineups

Mainz: Karius – Brosinski, Bell, Hack, Bengtsson – Baumgartlinger, Latza – Clemens, Malli, Jairo – Muto.
VfB Stuttgart: Tyton – Schwaab, Sunjic, Baumgartl, Insua – Serey Dié, Gentner – Rupp, Maxim, Kostic – T. Werner.

Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart Prediction

Mainz play very good and they are big favorites to win this game. Visitors have very shaky defence, so I believe that we can see many goals tonight.

Mainz vs VfB Stuttgart Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.60 (Bet365)
