Mainz vs Burnley Lineups and Last Match

Mainz

Mainz enjoyed a pretty decent last season. They scored plenty of goals and this was the main reason why they spend the entire campaign in the top half of the standings.

Mainz's pre-season so far has been pretty uneventful with 3 big wins achieved against 3 semi-amateur German teams form the lower divisions. It seems coach Svensson prefers to polish things with behind-closed-doors internal matches.

With the squad rarely seen in public for weeks it is not clear what, if any, injury issues there are in the group right now.

Predicted Lineup – Batz(GK), Bell, Hack, Caci, Da Costa, Kohr, Lee, Fernandes, Barkok, Ajorque & Onisiwo

Burnley

Burnley's great run in the Championship last season saw them climbing back into the top flight. Under Vincent Kompany the Clarets began to play some modern-style of football, a stark contrast to the old-fashioned physical displays under Dyches.

Burnley have a very good squad and are ready to tackle the challenges of the Premier League. This showed in the summer friendlies too. The Clarets won 3 of 5 test matches and their only defeat was a 0-2 loss vs Genk. In 3 of the other 4 games, Burnley also kept clean sheets.

With this being the final test before the start of the new season coach Kompany is expected to select his best possible lineup.

Foster and Brunn Larsen might miss due to illness. This would limit the options in attack but even without them, Burnley have enough quality strikers to be causing problems.

Predicted Lineup – Muric (GK), Beyer, Ekdal, Taylor, Roberts, Redmond, Cork, Brownhill, Bastien, Rodriguez & Manuel

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Karim Onisiwo

Mainz's Austrian striker Karim Onisiwo scored 10 Bundesliga goals last season. He also scored 5 goals in the 3 friendlies recently. The tall centre forward is very useful for Mainz's approach with aggressive wing-backs and lots of crosses.

Despite Burnley's rock-solid defence we can't rule out Onisiwo getting on the scoresheet again as he has been riding high on confidence after 2022/23 was his first-ever Bundesliga season in which he reached double digits for goals.
