- Stuttgart have failed to win a single Bundesliga home game this season.
- Mainz beat RB Leipzig 3-2 in their last runout, and 05 avoided defeat in three of their last five matches on the road.
- Mainz held Borussia Dortmund to a 1-1 in their last Bundesliga away trip.
Mainz to avoid defeat?
Successive defeats on the road to Arminia Bielefeld and Freiburg have halted Stuttgart’s charge towards the Bundesliga’s top-half, and Die Schwabe’s dismal home record this season suggests another day of disappointment is likely against Mainz.
The relegation candidates finally ended a run of 10 matches without a win in fine style last time out, with an equal parts impressive and surprising 3-2 victory over a strong RB Leipzig outfit.
Mainz should be bursting with confidence following their display against Die Roten Bullen, and having held high-flying Borussia Dortmund to a draw in their last match on the road, Bo Svensson’s men look capable of taking something from their trip to Stuttgart.
Remarkably, VfB have yet to win a single league game at the Mercedes-Benz Arena this term, and their lack of drive at home has seen them collect just five points from eight Bundesliga tests on their own patch overall.
Mainz meanwhile, have avoided defeat in three of their last five away contests, and buoyed by their sensational win against Leipzig, it could be worth backing the confident visitors in the double chance market this week, while our 1-1 correct score prediction indicates Stuttgart could be left winless at home again.
