Bundesliga Match Preview: Braunschweig vs. Mainz 05

Mainz and Braunschweig

Match Date: 25 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Eintracht-Stadion


Despite surrendering to Bayern Munchen, Mainz 05’s Europa League campaign continues. Considering how close they are to their ambition, there is no reason for petty mistakes and complacency to victimize the club.


Mainz is currently tied with Wolfsburg. But the latter has a better goal difference, which explains while it has a higher rank. On the other hand, Borussia Monchengladbach, which is also a close rival is just a point ahead of them. Technically speaking, they are still very much capable to qualifying in the international competition and perhaps, the match against Braunschweig is the first step towards achieving such goal.


Speaking of Braunschweig, perhaps it is safe to say that the club is off to its early exit in Germany’s top-flight league. Accumulating a total of 18 points within the season, it will be a bit too hard for the club to get out of the rock bottom part of the table.


Given these aspects at hand, it is evident that Mainz 05 is the match’s top pick and is valued at a profitable 1.94 at the sports betting site, 12BETs.


Prediction: Mainz 05
