Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Mainz put their unbeaten start on the line when they host winless Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Mainz Double Chance

Bayer Leverkusen have made a disastrous start to the new season in Germany and their galling 3-0 reverse at home to Hoffenheim last weekend was their third defeat in as many games. With their confidence at a low ebb, a trip to face unbeaten Mainz has the makings of another daunting task and the hosts will fancy their chances of causing an upset on Saturday. Mainz beat Bayer at the MEWA ARENA when the teams last met in February and they are excellent value in the double chance market again here.

Over 2.5 Goals

When Mainz last played and beat Bayer Leverkusen back in February, the teams traded blows in a thrilling contest that eventually finished 3-2 in Die Nullfünfer’s favour, and another goal-fest looks possible when the sides reacquaint themselves on Saturday. Over 2.5 goals has landed in two of the teams’ first three assignments of the new season respectively and we’re tipping that pattern to continue.
