Four points from the last six available to them is keeping Mainz just above the dreaded automatic relegation spots with 17th-placed FC Cologne breathing down their necks. With the latter away at Bayern Munich this weekend, it serves as a huge chance for Mainz to potentially create a points gap between the two teams with a home game against Hoffenheim.


Hoffenheim brought their three-match losing streak to a timely end with a 3-1 win over Augsburg in Sinsheim. After going 2-0 ahead after 20 minutes, Hoffenheim were made to sweat in the second half when Augsburg pulled one back, but the hosts wrapped up victory late on through Ihlas Bebou. That three points leaves them in eighth-place, ahead of Freiburg on goal difference.



PREDICTED XI (3-4-3): Zentner; Van den Berg, Guilavogui, Hanche-Olsen; Caci, Barreiro, Amiri, Mwene; Gruda, Burkardt, Lee

UNAVAILABLE: Bell (Illness), Leitsch (Injured)



PREDICTED XI (3-4-1-2): Baumann; Kabak, Grillitsch, Drexler; Kaderabek, Promel, Stach, Skov; Kramaric; Weghorst, Beier

UNAVAILABLE: Berisha (Injured), John (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Nsoki (Injured)


Home advantage may prove to be crucial for Mainz as they continue their fight to beat the drop. Any slip-up could drop them into the bottom two and their players will no doubt give absolutely everything on the pitch. Such commitment gives them a great chance of getting something against Hoffenheim, who are still yet to keep a clean sheet in 2024. Utilise the double chance market to back a Mainz victory or a draw.
