Koln vs Mainz Preview & Betting Tips

Koln play Mainz at the Rhein Energie Stadion on Sunday in the Bundesliga with goals expected to flow. 
Considering that both teams enjoy and free-flowing attacking brand of football goals could come aplenty. The over/under goals market offers superb value.

Koln Form

Koln have been in flying form winning eight of their last 11 Bundesliga matches. After looking to be stuck in the relegation fight this recent run has steered them well clear. They destroyed Hertha Berlin 5-0 away from home before beating Schalke at home..

Markus Gisdol’s side backed it up with a 2-1 win at bottom-of-the-table Paderborn where Jorge Meré and Jonas Hector both scored. Koln’s last match was a 2-1 defeat at fourth placed Borussia Monchengladbach. 

Koln have won five of their last six home matches in the Bundesliga and won by 2+ goals in three of their last four at home.

Mainz Form

Mainz have not enjoyed the best  of spells but before the break due to COVID-19 there was some respite. After four defeats they defeated Hertha Berlin 3-1 - that was followed up with a credible 0-0 draw at home before suffering a 4-0 defeat to Wolfburg.

Achim Beierlorzer’s side returned to winning ways with a 2-0 home win against  Paderborn. Mainz’s last match was a 0-0 home draw against Fortuna Dusseldorf after conceding a late equaliser.

This decent little point scoring run puts them four points clear of the relegation zone but with nine games to play it is far from over.
