Mainz 05 vs Hamburger SV Match Prediction

By William Hall

Two of Bundesliga's strugglers go head to head this weekend as Mainz welcome Hamburg to the Opel Arena on Saturday afternoon. Mainz were able to put back to back positive results together before the international break beating Hertha Berlin at home and drawing away at Wolfsburg. Another good result will be in the script this weekend, and with Hamburg coming into this one off the back of five games without a win, picking up just one point it looks likely for the Mainz. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Coming into this game, Mainz have been n the better form and are looking a lot sharper in front of goal. I expect them to show up again this weekend wanting to maintain this solid run they are on. Muto has been the sides top goalscorer so far this season, already scoring three goals. His form will prove very important to the side this season if they are going to achieve anything or even stay in the league. Hamburg will be desperate to get back to winning ways this weekend after five games without a win. A lack of goals has hurt them up to now but coming up against a side who are also down struggling with them. This could be the game they turn it all around. Below are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Mainz to win - 13/20

Mainz to win to nil - 7/4

Mainz 05 saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Mainz 05 scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played against Hamburger SV

Mainz 05 Preview

The start to the season didn't go to plan for Mainz losing both of their opening two matches. However, since them, they have managed to pick up seven points from five games. Before the international break, Mainz was able to pick up an important point away to Wolfsburg which is always a tough place to go. Mainz had to come from behind in the game, with Muto slotting home with 15 mins to go. Mainz will be looking to put their start to the season behind them this weekend with another win which would stretch their unbeaten run to three games for the first time this season. It isn't as if Mainz are struggling to score goals having already hit the back of the net seven times; it's keeping them out the other end which is proving a tough task, having already seen eleven beat them.

Mainz 05 Team News

mainz have four players out this weekend with Gaestan Bussman (groin injury), Niko Bungert (thigh injury), Danny Latza (achillies tendon injury) and Levin Oztunali (groin injury) all sidelined.

Hamburger SV Preview

After a bright side from Hamburg, form have dropped off massively. Back to back wins in the first two games of the season to Wolfsburg and Cologne made it seem they were going to be a tough team to beat this season. However, since they haven't been able to win in five games, losing four times. They have also been unable to score in any of those games which is a considerable worry for the team. Away from home, Hamburg have even seemed to struggle, and with them going into this one very low on confidence, it wouldn't be a shock to see them full short again this weekend. Last time out Hamburg was able to pick up their only point in five games at home to Werder Bremen. They were slightly unlucky not to bag all three points after dominating the game, but the search for a win continues.

Hamburger SV Team News

Hamburg have seven players who will miss the trip to Mainz with Sven Shipplock (back injury), Bjarne Thoelke (medial collateral ligament), Rick Van Drongelen (groin injury), Andreas Hirzel (ill), Sejad Salihovic (shin injury), Nicolai Miller (ACL) and Kyriakos Papadopoulos (suspension) all out.
