Mainz to Win

Both Bochum and Mainz had to contend with little possession in Bundesliga's Round 1 action. They will be looking to exert their superiority in this meeting at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion. Given the clinical display by Mainz against RB Leipzig and their ability to withstand pressure, we are backing them to come out as victors from this Saturday meeting.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

Bochum has found themselves in high scoring affairs of late with 20 goals scored in their last 6 league outings. The scenery has changed quite a bit and that trend can only continue at their expense. With Bo Svennson keeping affairs tight at the helm of Mainz, we expect a low scoring affair in their first away trip of the 2021/22 Bundesliga campaign.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both sides saw a clean sheet on the opening but with different results. Bochum could not get past Wolfsburg's defence while Mainz denied RB Leipzig despite being on the back foot for the duration of the campaign. Bo Svennson will not like to concede an away goal as his side's chances of success decrease rapidly.

Match Preview of Bochum vs Mainz

Mainz arrive at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion to pile on Bochum's misery

The Carnival Club required a change in the dugout to earn Bundesliga safety after a horrendous first part of the campaign. With Bo Svennson emerging as the best managerial talent of the last two decades at the club, they will fancy their chances at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.

The first goal will be important as Mainz have only gone on to win 22% of their matches when down 1-0 away as compared to success in 66% of their matches after taking the lead. However, Bochum will not be easy pickings and they know how to defeat this Mainz outfit. In their most recent meeting in the DFB Pokal at the tail end of December 2020, Die Unabsteigbaren forced the issue in extra time and knocked out the top division side.
