Mainz 05 vs Hamburg Preview

Home team’s strong form at the Coface Arena see’s them start the match as justifiable 3/4 favourites

With six losses in eight games, Hamburg are in disarray at the moment. Sitting 16th in the league, they are staring down the barrel of Bundesliga relegation, and need to turn results around fast. Unfortunately for them, they travel to a very solid Mainz 05 unit on Sunday, and the home team should be too strong in every department.

1) Hamburg are statistically the league’s weakest away team, and have lost their last four games on their travels, whilst Mainz 05 have won over 33% of their home games. Back a home win at 3/4.

2) Hamburg have failed to score in a staggering 73% of their away games. Mainz 05 to keep a clean sheet looks fantastic value at 6/4.

3) Just under 15% of Mainz 05 home victories have finished by a 2-0 score-line, making a repeat good value at 15/2.

4) Mainz 05 have scored the opening goal in 60% of their home fixtures, and statistically score most of their goals between the 31st and 45th minute mark. Back the home team to win halftime/fulltime at 6/4.

5) Hamburg have conceded 2 or more goals in 54% of their away games this season, whilst Mainz 05 have bagged 2 or more in 51% of games at home. Mainz 05 to score 2 or more again is available at 7/10.

6) Shinji Okazaki is Mainz 05’s top scorer this season with 12 goals. Over 50% of these have come at home. He should be backed to score again at Evs.

7) Rafael van de Vaart has been Hamburg’s most dangerous player this season, and 3 of his 4 goals have come away from home. If Hamburg are to score, then he looks the most likely at 7/2.
