VfB Stuttgart vs Mainz 05 Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

After opening day losses, Stuttgart and Mainz will each look to get their season's truly started on Saturday. Newly promoted Stuttgart were welcomed back away to Hertha Berlin, and they would fall 2-0 on the day. Matthew Leckie scored directly after half time for the Berlin side, and he added to that 16 minutes later. Mainz, disappointingly, fell at home to Hannover last Saturday by a score of 0-1. Martin Harnik scored the lone goal of the match as Mainz failed to gain anything. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Mainz have failed to really improve very much in the summer months, and they have promoted the manager from the reserve side, showing he might need time to find his feet. As a result, they seem to be in a poor position right now and look quite vulnerable. It does you no good to boss the ball without the confidence to finish off chances. That could hurt them away here, and we think it will do. Stuttgart's odds to win and keep a clean sheet are at 10/3. For Mainz's top threat Yoshi Muto to score anytime, you can get 12/5 odds.

VfB Stuttgart Preview

Stuttgart's Bundesliga season got off to the start that it was expected to: a loss away to Hertha Berlin. The loss, though, isn't all that discouraging considering that Hertha were one of the better sides in the league last season, and that they were especially good at home. Stuttgart lost by just two, so it's not as if they were hammered by any means. They would have liked a point, no doubt, but they will not be full of broken spirit in this match. They actually acquitted themselves quite well straight away after promotion by playing a very even match statistically, so they will have high hopes of getting a win from their first home match this season.

VfB Stuttgart Team News

The hosts will be missing right winger Carlos Mane, left back Emiliano Insua, and forward Daniel Ginczek for their home debut.

Mainz 05 Preview

Mainz will come into this match in a bad mood after their loss at home on the opening weekend. After bossing the game against Hannover, they somehow conspired to loss by a 0-1 as they could not find a way to score. 13 corners were earned, and they bossed the ball for over 60% of the match. No goal was coming for them, though, and that will leave them angry heading into this match with yet another team that has recently gained promotion. Mainz narrowly escaped relegation last term and would have been in the playoff had it not been for a superior goal difference. A loss here might just be the signal that they are headed for a similar fate this season.

Mainz 05 Team News

Goalkeeper Jannik Huth, center back Alexander Hack, left back Gaetan Bussmann, defensive midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin, striker Niko Bungert, and left winger Gerrit Holtmann all look set to miss out on this trip.
