Underperforming Leverkusen vs Improving Mainz.

Bayer Leverkusen are set to visit Mainz this Saturday in German Bundesliga action. Leverkusen will be hoping to put recent form behind them and go into the Bundesliga’s winter break on a high by earning all three points from this Saturday’s fixture. They face a tricky test versus Mainz as they attempt to avoid their third straight Bundesliga loss. 

Leverkusen have managed to win just three of their last 10 Bundesliga games. They have lost four games during this same 10 game period. They managed to earn some big wins versus Bayern Munich and Schalke in recent weeks. However, Leverkusen have been particularly struggling in games versus bottom-half teams, of late. 

Leverkusen have lost each of their last four games versus teams who are currently sitting in the bottom half of the Bundesliga table. This doesn’t bode well for them ahead of Saturday’s trip to 14th place Mainz, who have shown positive signs lately. 

Mainz have been in-form and scoring plenty of goals lately.

Mainz have been enjoying a spell of good form in recent weeks. They have won three of their last five Bundesliga fixtures. Mainz have earned a total of nine points over the past five games. Meanwhile, Leverkusen have earned a total of just seven points over the past five games. 

Despite both teams respective league positions, this shows that Mainz have actually been in better form than Leverkusen, of late. They will provide tough opposition for an underperforming Leverkusen side this Saturday. 

Mainz have also been in excellent form in front of goal in recent weeks. They have scored a total of 15 goals over the past six games. Only RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund have scored more goals than Mainz over the past six games. They will be tough to keep quiet this Saturday. 

Leverkusen’s poor form in front of goal. 

In contrast to Mainz, Leverkusen have been relatively poor in front of goal lately. Leverkusen have been capable of dominating their opposition this season. However, they have struggled in the finishing department throughout this campaign. They have frequently been wasteful with their chances. 

Leverkusen’s finishing problems are evident in their lack of a high goalscorer. Leverkusen’s top Bundesliga goalscorer this season is currently Kevin Volland, who has scored just five goals this season. They seem like a team in need of a top centre-forward. We feel that this could hurt them again in this game. 

Leverkusen have particularly struggled in front of goal in recent weeks. They have scored just seven goals in their last six Bundesliga games. Only three teams have scored fewer goals than Leverkusen in this time period. 

We feel that the home side, Mainz, are in with a good chance of earning a result from Saturday’s game. We are backing Mainz double chance in this fixture. 

Furthermore, we feel that a 2-1 win for Mainz is a likely outcome of this game.
