Koln vs Mainz: Koln hosts Mainz at the RheinEnergieStadion in the Bundesliga’s 29th round this Saturday
If we could use a term to describe this encounter it would be desperation. These are two teams completely at risk of being relegated on the competition and that desperately need points at this final stretch of the Bundesliga.
If we can call any of their situations comfortable, Mainz’s is a bit better.
The team currently occupies the 16th place with 26 points conquered. That position would avoid direct relegation and would make them play in the relegation play-offs.
Playing away from home, they have won 1, drew 5 and lost 8 times, with a record of 12 goals scored and 27 goals conceded. On the last 5 matches, the team drew 3 times and lost twice. The team’s last victory was against Hertha in February.

Koln comes right behind. To tell the truth, their situation was already much worse. Despite the loss against Hoffenheim by 6-0 on the last round, the team has beaten Leverkusen and Leipzig recently and they have fed their hopes of salvation once again.
It won’t be easy, since they only have 20 points and need to recover from a 6-points deficit to this same Mainz and to the first team outside of the relegation zone, which is Wolfsburg.
If we are talking about two of the worst teams in the Bundesliga, it is possible to understand that these two teams are in the lead of a lot of negative stats in the competition.
FC Koln vs Mainz – Betting Tip and Prediction:
And curiously, we’re talking about the two worst defences of the competition, with the despair and need of both sides probably not improving their metrics on that sector. In that sense.
I believe both teams will score here.
