Bundesliga – Mainz 05-Werder Bremen
Mainz 05 welcomes Werder Bremen in a match from the 10th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s see what we have to say about this clash at the OPEL ARENA in the city of Mainz.
Mainz 05 are currently 13th in the Bundesliga with 9 points won and a record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. Lately they are not doing very well in the league. In their last five matches Mainz 05 made two draws and suffered three defeats, including against Bayern Munich in the last round. Sandro Schwarz’ team had the advantage to play at home, but suffered a 1-2 loss. Jean Paul Boëtius scored in Manuel Neuer’s net, but it was not enough for at least a point in the game.
Right now Mainz are just 3 points above the 16th Hannover 96 and the relegation playoff zone, so clearly they need more points in order to feel more secure in the league. Every point they manage to win is going to be a huge success for them.
Werder are 4th in the Bundesliga standings with 17 points won and a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. So far they are doing pretty well, especially compared to previous seasons. If Werder find a way to finish in the Top 4 and qualify for the Champions League, this is going to be a huge success for the club.
In their last five games Werder won three times and suffered two defeats, including against Bayer Leverkusen at the Weserstadion. It was a really huge defeat for Werder, because they suffered a devastating 2-6 loss in front of their own fans. The veteran striker Claudio Pizarro and Yuya Osako scored for Werder, but these two goals were far from enough.
That’s what we had to say about the Bundesliga clash between Mainz 05 and Werder Bremen.
