Stuttgart vs Mainz Stats

Bottom of the table Stuttgart are fighting for the lives to beat the drop, but will struggle against a solid Mainz outfit

Mainz’s price of 12/5 to beat Stuttgart represents one of the best bets of this Bundesliga season so far. Despite being an arguably more illustrious name in world football, Stuttgart have been anything but impressive this season. A lack of form, confidence and above all, quality means they lie bottom place in the table, staring relegation in the face. Mainz are a solid outfit, especially away from home, and should be backed in most markets.

1. Mainz are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Stuttgart, winning three of these. Stuttgart also have the league’s weakest home record, losing over 50% of their matches at the Mercedes Benz Arena. 12/5 is outstanding value on an away victory.

2. Both teams have scored in 61% of Mainz’ games and 54% of Stuttgart’s games. Their last meeting produced a 1-1 draw and both teams to score looks a safe bet at 3/5.

3. Stuttgart’s attacking brand of football has seen their home matches contain over 3.5 goals 47% of the time. Mainz have already scored 47 goals this season, making this look very likely to be a high scoring affair. Back over 3.5 goals at 7/4.

4. Over 60% of goals in Stuttgart home games have come after half time. Back the second half to produce the most goals at 21/20.

5. Stuttgart have lost over 10% of their games by a 3-2 scoreline this season, whilst Mainz games have produced this score on three occasions. A Mainz 3-2 win is great value at 25/1.

6. Shinji Okazaki has scored five more goals than any of his other team mates this season, and looks the most likely to grab the first goal for Mainz at 11/2.

7. Martin Harnik has 8 goals for Stuttgart this season with 5 of them coming at home. He is good value to score again at 6/5.
