Bochum vs Mainz – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Bochum have won each of their last two meetings with Mainz at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion. Can they complete a hattrick of victories on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Bochum Double Chance

Having lost on each of their last two visits to the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Mainz won’t be relishing the prospect of facing Bochum in Saturday’s campaign opener and recent history suggests the hosts could take something from the game again. Bochum were much the better team when they won their last skirmish with Die Nullfünfer 3-1 in January and Mainz won only two of their final 15 Bundesliga matches on the road last term. With those factors aligned, Bochum seem way under priced in the double chance market here and that’s where we recommend you place your stake.

Both Teams to Score

Early season fixtures are routinely end-to-end affairs as teams readjust to the pace of competitive action. With ring rust likely to be a factor, goals at both ends are anticipated on Saturday in a clash between two sides not exactly renowned for their defensive strength. Bochum recorded just two shutouts in their final 12 home assignments of the previous campaign, while Mainz failed to secure a single clean sheet in their last 15 away tests. Back both defences to concede again on Saturday.
