On Saturday, two teams at opposite ends of the Bundesliga table are set to meet when Mainz 05 look to continue their impressive start to the campaign by facing Bayer Leverkusen at MEWA Arena. The hosts are undefeated in their opening three matches, and currently sit fourth, meanwhile, the visitors are yet to pick up a single point this season.
Mainz have looked good so far this season, securing two victories and a draw across their opening three games in order to find themselves in one of the Champions League spots at the moment. The squad kickstarted their campaign with a 2-1 win against VFL Bochum, and they followed it up with a goalless draw against Union Berlin in what was their first home match.
Their most recent outing came against Augsburg which saw Karim Onisiwo give them the lead, and even though it got cut back Mainz still took all three points after a last-minute winner from Lee Jae-Sung.
Throughout the 2021-22 campaign the squad were only defeated twice at home, showcasing their ability to create a hostile atmosphere in order to pick up results.
On the other hand, while the visitors might have finished third-placed in the last campaign, things have started poorly this time around, and they head into this game without a win in four matches across all competitions. Bayer Leverkusen were knocked out of the DFB Pokal against SV Elversberg in a thrilling 4-3 match, and that has continued into their opening three Bundesliga fixtures.
Since then Gerardo Seoane’s men have struggled to get things going, and a big issue they have been dealing with is a lack of goals as they have only scored once in the league. Charles Aranguiz was the man who scored that in a 2-1 defeat against Augsburg, and the game before that saw them lose 1-0 against Borussia Dortmund.
Even though Mainz were strong at home last season, they did just miss out on a European slot by six points, and that is something they shall be pushing to improve upon this time around. Now looking at Leverkusen’s most recent outing, it took place last weekend against Hoffenheim where they were beaten 3-0 despite dominating the possession, which might bring down the team’s spirits.
