Player to Watch – Silvan Widmer

Silvan Widmer has been back in the Mainz team of late and the right-wing-back has been a reliable performer since his restoration to the XI. The Swiss international was one of his team’s best players in their last home game against Freiburg and Widmer will be determined to play a key role again on Saturday.
