*Odds from Betfred, Netbet and SBK are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Furth has seen only two of their last five fixtures go in excess of Over 2.5 total goals. Ironically, they failed to score in one of these. On the other hand, Mainz has seen three of their last five fixtures conclude in this manner but they were on the receiving end of two of these high scoring affairs. Both sides have had difficulties scoring with two and three goals to their name in their last four outings respectively. While their last two fixtures saw three goals apiece, this meeting looks unlikely to live up to that billing.
Both Teams to Score – No
Goals have come at a premium for Furth and Mainz. The Cloverleaves have scored a paltry three goals in their last five outings. Mainz's stats of seven in the same period are encouraging but four of these came in one fixture. Add to the fact that Furth has not scored in their last two outings, both of which concluded as goalless draws. With both teams having difficulties scoring, at home and on the road, we expect this low scoring affair without goals at either end of the pitch.

Greuther Furth Predicted Lineup
Stefan Leitl still maintains his responsibilities in Furth's dugout despite overseeing a worse performance than relegated Schalke managed last season. The Cloverleaves are unbeaten in their last three outings, all stalemates against fellow relegation-threatened outfits. They are 11 points adrift of safety and need to start turning draws into victories to give themselves a respectable chance.
Predicted XI: Sascha Burchert (GK); Marco Meyerhofer, Sebastian Griesbeck, Nick Viergever, Gian-Luca Itter; Paul Seguin, Max Christiansen, Timothy Tillman; Branimir Hrgota, Jamie Leweling, Havard Nielsen
Mainz Predicted Lineup
Bo Svensson will have sympathies for Stefan Leitl and will surely have words of wisdom to impart after their meeting over the weekend. The Swiss manager took charge of the Carnival Club while they were in the relegation slots and carried them to safety last season. Mainz have not looked back since and are five points adrift of the top-four. Defence has been the key to their success, an area in which Furth have shown improvements of late.
Predicted XI: Robin Zentner; Jeremiah St Juste, Moussa Niakhate, Stefan Bell; Aaron Caricol, Jae-sung Lee, Anton Stach, Leandro Barreiro, Silvan Widmer; Karin Onisiwo, Jonathan Burkhardt
