Mainz 21/20 to beat Cologne in Saturday’s Bundesliga battle
Market: Mainz to beat Cologne
Odds: 21/20 @ Bet365
The Bundesliga returns this weekend after an international break that did not provide the excitement that club football brings as Germany had already qualified for the World Cup, meaning they were taking part in friendlies across the week. Therefore, the fans will be desperate to sink their teeth into some exciting club football again, with the Bundesliga heating up. With this in mind, Mainz host Cologne on Saturday.
Mainz have been struggling this season as they look to keep themselves out of the relegation battle. Three wins, three draws and five defeats have yielded 12 points, meaning they are just four points clear of Freiburg, while the fact they have conceded 17 goals already shows their real deficiency lies at the back for the side. In their last five games, they have struggled to kick on, drawing three times, losing once and winning once. The fans will be getting progressively more worried about their team’s fortunes, but a win on Saturday against the league’s bottom side could go a long way to relieving their fears.
For Cologne, this season has been an abysmal one. After 11 games they are yet to win, while they have drawn twice and lost nine times already. With just four goals scored and 22 conceded, their troubles are clearly all over the pitch, with the team in desperate need of a victory just to turn their slump around. With Cologne struggling so much, and as Mainz have home advantage, we are backing the home side with odds of 21/20 from Bet365.
