After three-quarters of the way through the season, Mainz and Bremen are both in the middle of the Bundesliga table, with the former having ambitions and the latter having little to lose. Specifically, Bremen is in 11th place with 31 points while Mainz is in 8th place with 40 points. At this point, Bremen is 9 points clear of the team in 16th place, so they are almost certain to secure a spot in the Bundesliga next season. Bremen is relaxed and could book their summer vacation early, while Mainz still has to fight for a spot in the Europa Cup and even has a chance to grab fourth place at home.
What is encouraging for Mainz is their recent excellent form, as they just defeated Leipzig in the previous round to end two consecutive draws and extend their unbeaten run to seven games, during which they collected 17 points. From the perspective of winning and losing, in the impressive seven recent rounds, Mainz won the Asian handicap five times. The home ground is even more supportive, as Mainz has gone five consecutive games without losing and won the Asian handicap four times.
Meanwhile, Bremen's form is not something to be proud of, as they just lost to Hoffenheim in the previous round, making it four rounds in a row without a win, and lost three games. From the perspective of winning and losing, in the seven recent rounds, Bremen lost the Asian handicap five times. Playing away from home, Bremen is even more unreliable, winning only two of their last eight away games according to the Asian handicap, losing six.
