STUTTGART-VS-MAINZ05-25-january-2014-prediction

Bundesliga action resumes and William Hill points us towards a match that lately had always more than three goals being scored. This time around both teams find themselves at the middle of the table with Mainz 05 being 5 points in front of Stuttgart and both are sporting negative goal difference.

Stuttgart’s form has been all over the Bundesliga lately, and statistics show that the first part of the competition was spent on trying to figure out a form that suits them best. So now they find themselves having won only five matches and having seven defeats. The defense is the area where they need to patch things up, as the attacking part of their team is doing quite well.

Mainz ended Bundesliga last year with a shocker, they won against Hamburg, and that win alone is tipped to give them enough confidence to finish the competition on a good place. The last time the team lost was back in November against Borussia Dortmund, and they can boast with a goalless draw against Gladbach, the third placed Bundesliga team. The trait that makes Mainz extra dangerous for Stuttgart is the ball possession rate and the ability to create scoring chances out of nothing, but they do commit mistakes in the defense.

With both teams having issues in the back line expect goals to be scored from both sides. There might be over 2.5 goals at 1.69, and our bet is on Ibisevic and Harnik to score at anytime for Stuttgart at 4.60 from William Hill.
