Mainz and Bayer Leverkusen give the start of round 21 in the Bundesliga. The Carnival club began somehow successively 2019 with two wins and one loss against Augsburg in the last round. At home, Mainz are solid and lost only against the leaders in the standings – Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Sandro Schwarz’s players started the season not so confidently, but recently are showing attacking football and have scored eight goals in the previous five fixtures on Opel Arena, compared with just four in the first five games.
Bayer Leverkusen lost with 2-1 against Heidenheim and were knocked out from DFB Cup. This was somewhat a surprising defeat because a game before that they won versus Bayern Munich with the 3-1 score. As guests, Bayer Leverkusen recorded four wins, two draws and four losses, but all victories were against teams from the lower half of the table.
In the last round, Mainz were totally outplayed by Augsburg and didn’t create a single chance for a goal. However, they are an entirely different team at home. On Opel Arena, they can only regret that didn’t take a point in their 2-1 loss against Borussia Dortmund at the end of November. We think that Bayer Leverkusen will score, but will not take the three points versus the Carnival club. The Company XI are still not consistent with their performance and are not ready to fight for the first four places in the standings.
