Betting tips for Leverkusen vs Mainz - 25.02.2017
Another interesting duel scheduled in the Bundesliga 22nd round will put face to face Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz, this Saturday from 14:30, UK Time.
Leverkusen are in pole-position at the bookmakers, having almost every argument in their favour. They have the fans behind and their form improved in the past few weeks, proof that Leverkusen won six points in the last two rounds. The hosts still fight for a place in Top 6, to qualify at least for Europa League. Their home record is not really impressive, with five wins, two draws and four defeats. Wendel and Calhanoglu are suspended, while Tah is still injured.
Mainz will come here without three players, all injured: Suat Serdar, Karim Onisiwo and Emil Berggreen. The visitors were very inconstant this campaign and that's why they are only on the 12th position. Mainz lost the reverse fixture, 2-3 at home, altough they opened the score and also was leading 2-1 at half time. However, it is important to know that Mainz lost only one of the previous four trips at this stadium, 0-1 in September 2015.
